Frankie Edgar's Manager Goes Off on Conor McGregor Following Recent Comments

To the UFC boss, the fight is possible, but it won't happen in the boxing ring again.

But the Dublin native suggests he is ready to return: "Taking out the final featherweight, without all of the rest of the stuff that comes with this game".

McGregor took to social media on Thursday to announce he would definitely be fighting again and had even offered to replace the injured Max Holloway at UFC 222 next weekend. On top of the fighting. Because I am here.

Edgar's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, denied the Irish fighter's claims, calling him "a liar" and saying he "should have fought Frankie two years ago", according to ESPN's Brett Okamoto. Now we finally have some clarity in the right direction, though we still don't know when McGregor will be stripped.

Despite his determination to return to the octagon, many believe that he is still more interested in a money-spinning rematch with Floyd Mayweather under MMA rules.

McGregor has been busy away from the UFC, with his boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather in August past year and subsequent talk of a rematch. Meltzer stated, that several recent rumors have suggested that the negotiations between McGregor and the UFC management have apparently gone well.

Lastly, Meltzer added that as per current plans, McGregor will eventually collide with the victor of the upcoming title fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

This allegation even received a blessing from Donald Trump Jr ., who recently liked a tweet that proclaimed this conspiracy. Baseless claims are being made, including that surviving students are actors.

It's been well over a year since McGregor stepped into the Octagon, when he won the lightweight title at UFC 205 beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

"Is he upset? No, Conor understands", White said.

It seemed an effort to reshape the narrative in the eyes of fans and put pressure back on the UFC after promotion boss Dana White had said that the Dubliner "might never come back".

"He was supposed to fight Frankie Edgar (at UFC 189) and he chose Chad Mendes coming off a loss". It's bound to be one of their biggest nights in history when it eventually does happen.

McGregor's comments this week, though, suggest that he's definitely keen to come back.

"Let me tell you about Conor McGregor, he's like a prostitute, used to make high-dollar money, but she got old and nobody wanted her anymore".
