Am not sure myself, I mean he says all the right things, has married a hot presenter, seems to have all the confidence and a cool nickname and Conor gives him a fair amount of attention, as does Ariel Helwani.
He won convingly against Darian Weeks but seemed to lack that x factor that sparked McGregors career.
He is competing at UFC 276 against Gabriel Green (11-3-0) 2-1 in the UFC. Garry himself is 9-0 (2-0 in the UFC) but it feels like fighters from the UK like Paddy Pimblett and Tom Aspinall are taking some of the shine away.
Time will tell I guess, what do you guys think?
