Conor McGregor Says He’s Fighting Again, Frankie Edgar’s Manager Says He’s ‘Like A Prostitute’

There’s been a lot of skepticism as to whether former UFC Lightweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor will ever set foot in the octagon again. UFC President Dana White said last year:

It was August and now it’s September. I say it all the time, when you get that kind of money… Conor might never come back. It’s a lot of money.

He’s quite right about Conor McGregor’s money. Earlier this year, we reported that The Notorious held second place in Ireland’s Sunday Independent rich list.

Conor McGregor wants to fight again, though, according to an Instagram post he put up only hours ago:

I am fighting again. Period.
I am the best at this.

Conor also claimed that he wanted to fight former Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar, but said the UFC told him there “wasn’t enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need.”

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™

Frankie Edgar’s manager, Abdel-Aziz, scoffed at claims that Conor wanted to fight Edgar. In an interview with TMZ, he said:

He’s like a prostitute, used to make high-dollar money, but she got old and nobody wanted her anymore. This f**king guy. For three years, he did everything he can not to fight Frankie Edgar.

Mark Henry, Edgar’s striking coach, also chimed in:

When you bring up @frankieedgar name that’s the perfect picture for you @thenotoriousmma. You ducked him 3 times in the past, FE and his manager @aliabdelaziz000 asked for Conors name specifically when Max went down ( but we knew you only take stylistically what is a good match for you and you ducked him 3x already) it’s bad enough of crappy posts putting people down when you have never defended a title cut lines to titles and 90 % of the time fight people in your comfort zone. I agree Connor is an AMAZING AMAZING fighter and has transcended the game with his accent, personality, wit, incredible fighting style and power ( which beat a great and one of my own guys) intelligence and don’t forget trashing people some of the BEST standup I’ve ever seen in mma and I really thought had a chance first 2 rds to bear mayweather. But to constantly sit on the sideline and talk about a man who always wants to fight and always and only the BEST guys, a man the UFC always trys to side track FE weather Mendes ( they were trying to protect you) or Yair or another young killer. A fighter who should be at 35 but fights his whole career heavier and doesn’t cry about someone being bigger like you constantly did with a 55er. A fighter who doesn’t make excuses when he losses like size or cheesecake he just takes it like a man and gives credit when is due. A fighter who even though gives up height range weight his entire career has never quit or been stopped. Last time I checked that’s 4 for you now buddy. You will NEVER EVER have the heart of Frankie or integrity. It’s soo soo simple if your dog crap post is true fight Frankie next. Weather it be mma or boxing. ( And I promise you he won’t hammer fist on top your head he knows the rules). But YOU WON’T! @thenotoriousmma with @get_repost

Is Conor McGregor serious about making a comeback in the UFC, or has his legacy already been forged?

Fans will have to wait and see.
