Conor McGregor is back in the game

Posted February 24, 2018

The Instagram post rocketed up to a million likes in several hours and next thing you know, Frankie Edgar's manger and coach were releasing sizzling statements about the claim.

Then again, with the kind of money Conor made in his last fight.

While all the fights I just mentioned are possibilities, the truth is the best matchup for McGregor, for the fans, and for the UFC is him fighting the victor of Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov.

"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".

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. "I say it all the time, when you get that kind of money..." Because I am here.

Edgar is now scheduled to take on Brian Ortega at UFC 222, but would you still be interested in seeing "The Answer" take on McGregor? The 145-pounder will instead face Brian Ortega in a non-title fight.

Chavez told reporters that the teenager had remarked 'that within three weeks there would be a school shooting on campus'. The alleged threat was overheard by a school security officer at El Camino High School, located in Whittier, California.

"It's soo soo simple if your dog crap post is true fight Frankie next". Will we ever see McGregor and Edgar fight? "It's not for the interim title, that fight is for the title".

McGregor's suggestions he tried to be the saviour of UFC's Las Vegas show next month have not gone down well with Edgar's people, however.

Now, however, the question becomes: what to do with McGregor's lightweight title when the champion is openly stating he's ready to come back?

The possibility of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jnr also remains on the table, according to White. He could've fought Frankie so many times, but he didn't.

Obviously, McGregor is still awaiting his return to action later this year with hopes that he will face the victor of the UFC 223 main event between Nurmagomedov and interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson on April 7.

McGregor's claim plays perfectly into the reputation he earned early in his career for fighting anyone at any time and at any place.
