Conor McGregor Has Another Cheeky Pop At Frankie Edgar As UFC 222 Awaits

Conor McGregor isn’t going to let UFC 222 pass without having the final word…

Last week, Conor McGregor sent the MMA world into fits of excitement as he emphatically announced that he will be making a UFC comeback in the near future.

Posting on his official Instagram account, the SBG star stated that he, in fact, wanted to make his return vs Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 this weekend – replacing the injured Max Holloway in the main event.

Although the UFC were apparently uninterested in booking the Irishman in a rather random bout at such short notice, Edgar himself has since stated that he would have jumped at the opportunity to take on the sport’s biggest star.

However, ‘The Answer’ isn’t exactly top of the list when it comes to potential McGregor opponents and, even Frankie himself also admitted that he’s not exactly holding his breath when it comes to a scrap with the Irishman.

“If we’re gonna fight, we’ll fight,” Edgar said on Monday’s The MMA Hour. “But I doubt it. I really don’t think we’ll ever cross paths. I really don’t.”

However, it seems that McGregor himself is certainly still monitoring Frankie’s activity and, posting on his official Twitter account on Thursday evening, the SBG star had a final pop at the Jersey fighter in responding to a tweet from MMA journalist Ariel Helwani.
