    He seems to have been working a lot on his ground game so I was curious on how long it would take for him to reach a legit black belt-level given that he continues to work on his BJJ at this intensity.

    I thought his McGregor belt was better?

    If we're talking a legit black belt.

    I'd say about 8 years or so.

    Wow, that's a heck of a long time. I was expecting something like 3-4 years.

    Yeah, better take an anonymous Sherdogger's word for it who's never trained with Conor. 100% factual and correct.

    Conor is a brown belt, I expect he will get his black belt sometime next year.

    Numerous high level guys have commented on how good his BJJ is, it's really just a haterism that he's poor in the ground.

    The Gracie system before a select few sold out was notoriously hard and people dedicated huge chunks of their childhood and adult life to reach black belt status.

    I'm not taking his word for it. I'm just trying to create a discussion and give the person who wrote the post a chance to present me some more convincing arguments.

    My inside sources tell me that Could have one already but he will not accept it yet. He's training with a world champion now though so he's probably a 2nd degree black belt atm.

    He could do it in the next couple years, assuming he works hard at it.

    I feel you homie, my personal take on your questions is that if we're talking a legit black belt under a practitioner with respectable lineage then he'd have to put in a solid stint of more than 5 years.

    He got the hot dog brander for breaking the PPV sales record.
