Frankie Edgar’s Team Fire Lengthy Response At McGregor Following Comeback Post

Following Conor McGregor’s long-awaited statement that confirmed his eventual return to the UFC octagon, the team of perennial contender Frankie Edgar fired back with a strongly worded response.

The MMA world was turned on its head by a certain Irishman once again yesterday evening as the absentee UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor announced to the world that he is set on making his comeback.

One of the most interesting points made in this highly interesting post was the mention of McGregor’s attempt to step in for the injured Max Holloway at UFC 223 to face the longtime featherweight contender Frankie Edgar.

And while the post clearly states it was the UFC and not Edgar himself who McGregor claimed prevented the fight from happening, Frankie’s coach Mark Henry saw the opportunity and struck with a strongly-worded attack on Conor and his supposed attempt to duck the former lightweight champ.

The ever-vocal Ali Abdel-Aziz also couldn’t resist getting involved and while his point perhaps lacked the structure of Coach Henry’s, it still packed a punch.

 

Your move McGregor!
