I don't think he has the skills to beat the top guys at 155.

Good fighter but at 35 his time is running out quickly. He hasn't fought enough imo. In 5 and a half years with the UFC he's had 5 fights. That's not a good way to find success in this sport. People forget about you quickly in this sport. If he beats Gregor (which I really don't see happening) he'll gain some solid momentum but he's got to stay lucky enough not to get injured again and keep the ball rolling. And the top of the division is filled with killers to make things harder. I like Vinc but I don't like his chances of breaking into that top 10, let alone being a title contender.

He's had some impressive performances recently but the age factor is a big thing. Becoming champion these days isn't just about being the best fighter, you have to take into account social media following and of course luck.
