Venom McGregor

Tom Hardy based Venom character on Conor McGregor:

Tom Hardy has discussed his decision to base a Venom character on Conor McGregor, telling RTÉ Entertainment it was largely because the Irish MMA fighter "wants to have a scrap with everybody".

Hardy makes it clear the character traits he's based off of McGregor he's internalized along with an amalgam of other characters.

Don't expect to watch the movie and see him mimicking Conor.
