Conor McGregor is fresh off of an astounding 13-second win over Jose Aldo at the recent UFC 194 event, but it looks like his career could be taking a turn toward Hollywood.

Conor McGregor seems to have already opened doors for himself in the film industry that usually take years for regular actors to get through.

But, Conor McGregor's amazing UFC abilities make him a perfect action movie star.

Just ask the stars who are already pursuing him: One Mr. Vin Diesel and a Mr. Mark Wahlberg.

Sources that are reportedly close to Conor McGregor said that McGregor has already been offered a part in the upcoming sequel to Vin Diesel's hit movie, xXx, but that terms have not been finalized.

Also, Diesel posted this:

Timing and precision... The casting of the new XXX gets more exciting everyday. #Iliveforthisshit

Mark Wahlberg could be the next big star to be knocking on the door of Conor McGregor.

Wahlberg was recently asked by TMZ if he would ever work with Conor McGregor, to which he replied, "We like him," and, "Absolutely. The right role he could be great. Very possible."

Looks like Conor McGregor could have it all in the bag and a long Hollywood career after he gets done fighting.

Do you think Conor McGregor would make a great action star?
