    No one can become a star like Conor. Can he become a perennial 500-650k PPV type fighter, possibly, but even that's hard as fuck now a days.

    this, I don't think he's ever going to be a million+ fighter but he could definitely become an above average star.

    He's a good fighter & has the tats but he hasn't got the charisma or shit talking vocabulary to become one.

    No. He doesn't look like Conor, he can't talk like him.

    No. He doesn't have the gift of gab. He's like that 1.8 GPA jock with a limited vocabulary. Dude had to use a child prop so he'd have something to talk about after the fight.

    Having said that, he's a great fighter, terrible orator.

    McGregor's only come around once in a while. Cody may be just as good or better than McGregor but even then he'd still be missing key components.

    McGregor had the right style, the right shtick, the right accent and the right marketing at the right time.

    I could be proven wrong but I don't see it.

    Can he become a star? Yes.

    Like McGregor? No.

    Nah, but you're doing a great job at making yourself look like one.
