Conor McGregor said he's a billionaire in an Instagram post, but it's unlikely

    I doubt Conor has Billion US dollars. He's a lucky dude where all the star aligned for him at the right time. His timing was good (in his MMA skills and also going all in when it matters) at one point. Now, it's hard for him to keep the same stars aligned, I'd say because he lost the hunger.

    What the fuck are you talking about. Jameson out sold that pisswater 20-1 , and is sold in literally 130+ countries in the world, proper12 is sold in 4.

    Your point is still valid but you are fucking waaaay off.

    Jameson sold 7.3 millions cases vs just over 200k for McGregors stuff last year, world wide.

    Actually more like out sold it 35 to 1 .

    If he hadn't damaged his brand so badly the last 2 years he might have had more of a chance to close that gap.

    To be fair, if being associated with the beating and rape of women in Dublin hurt a whiskey brand, then nobody would be drinking Jameson either.

    I think with Proper 12 a lot of people just bought one as a collector item. I know I only bought one. Now I fill the bottle with Monster Energy and use it as a water bottle at the gym.

    for the love of god, if it were only being sold in three countries, it'd be called Proper Three!

    It’s so unlikely and frankly impossible

    No way......
