    How big of a star would he be?

    Would he be Mike Tyson in his prime level star? Has MMA reached that level yet?

    Everyone always says A-level athletes won't come to MMA, but if they can be a HW version of Conor, they'd make more money than in any team sport. Mike Tyson in his prime was the highest paid athlete by far.

    And they'd have the label, baddest man on the planet...that means something.. you can't tell me any man on this planet wouldn't want to be called baddest man on the planet.

    One day I feel like we will get our mike tyson of MMA and he's gonna be the highest paid athlete in the world. All you need is a Heavyweight version of Conor to come around

    If he was a HW he'd probably have beaten Floyd.

    If he was a HW he wouldn't be so light on his feet. Rendering a lot of his aresenal, useless.

    If he was a HW he’d probably be more tolerable and less insecure

    If he was a HW he would probably be scary when he gets mad instead of mildly entertaining. Can't take such a small dude really serious, lol.

    Well then we'd have no title fights in THAT division I guess.

    Same difference if you ask me. It's not like adding lbs will make the man want to fight...

    Then take a 2 year heavyweight break from fighting (but not from tweeting ABOUT fighting) and hold that belt hostage with the UFC's impotent consent.

    Colin would be gassed even faster than he is now. Colin has sick frail 9 year old girls lungs, at HW he would probably be done after about 2 minutes.
