    Cody Garbrandt at the age of 25 beat the #2 p4p fighter to become the champ in an extraordinary fashion


    McGregor at the age of 25 had less than 20k followers on social network

    Cody at the age of 25 has over 500k followers on social network


    McGregor first post after the fight against Holloway got less than 2k likes by that time (at the age of 25)



    Cody first post after the fight against Cruz at the age of 25 already has over 125k likes




    McGregor already has shown some weakness, bad cardio, not good wrestling, not too good grappling

    Cody at the age of 25 hasn't shown any weakness in the UFC, good cardio, good wrestling, good boxing


    McGregor at the age of 25 had a 12-2 professional record, those 2 loses in under a minute

    Cody at the age of 25 has a perfect 11-0 record, beating Cruz and Almeida, hey, Almeida is not that overrated after all, he just faced the fighter of the year


    Cody just gain over 140k followers in one day at the age of 25, and counting

    If the UFC promotes him like he deserves, he would be a bigger star than Conor in 2-3 years (if he doesn't lose against TJ), he's more well rounded than Conor will ever be. Cody vs TJ should be a PPV main event no doubt, perfect story between those 2 in the past, good fighters, if promoted well should do over 700k buys



    By all that being said, I hope he loses against TJ because I don't like him and I'm not a badwagoner but if he does beat TJ I hope no ones doubt he's better than Conor p4p (he already is IMO)

    To be fair, McGregor should have been in the UFC long before he actually debuted.

    Not quite sure what you are trying to compare.

    If you are suggesting Cody will be a bigger draw then Conor I think you are sorely mistaken. If you are suggesting Cody is more accomplished at the same age then yeah I agree, but they come from completely different backgrounds so it's not really comparable. Also, Cody and the rest of the ufc roster for that matter owes a degree of there popularity to both conor and ronda.

    Either way, I am a fan of both fighters but your comparison just doesn't make much sense to me.

  10. I was with you until "If the UFC promotes him like he deserves, he would be a bigger star than Conor in 2-3 years".

    That kind of ignores all the other things that made Conor successful.

    Too bad Cody doesn't have the skills to promote himself like Conor does. He is just not verbally as gifted. He will never be as big of a star as Conor.

    And? Dom was the first high level guy he has fought.

    Also, just because someone is a skilled champion, doesnt mean they will be a star. Look at Mighty Mouse. Hell, even Jon Jones isnt even half as big as Conor, and he has been the best LHW for 7 years.

    Cody doesnt have the personality to become a star.

    Cody also had a neck tattoo before McGregor got his.

    Plus he is "Self Made" while Conor is "Zuffa Made".

    My chick used to stalk Cody when we'd see him out here at the regional shows in Sacramento back before anyone knew who he was
    Bet now she really wishes she woulda approached him and offered to blow him
    Dumb bitch missed quite an opportunity hahahaha
