Conor McGregor Calls Out Frankie Edgar For Return UFC Fight

    


Former UFC two division Champion Conor McGregor made a huge statement today on social media claiming that he wants to return to the UFC to face Frankie Edgar in the featherweight division. Having spent so much time away from the sport it makes sense that he wants no part of the Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov winner or a rematch with the man who made him tap and later won a controversial majority decision over, Nate Diaz.

Conor McGregor:
“I am fighting again. Period.
I am the best at this.
I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn’t enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need.
I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in.
On top of the fighting.
I am here.
It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here.
Yours sincerely,
The Champ Champ™”

   

But apparently this is a straight up lie as Frankie Edgar responded immediately:

On McGregor’s claim he offered to fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, Edgar’s manager @AliAbdelaziz00 tells me, “He’s full a s—. He’s a liar. He should have fought Frankie two years ago.”
