Frankie Edgar wants Conor McGregor fight, willing to face him at any weight

Guys' Night Out At Lord & Taylor With Sterling Shepard, Jason Pierre Paul, And Frankie Edgar

Earlier this week, Conor McGregor gave a list of fighters he wants to share the Octagon with, with one of them was Frankie Edgar, and The Answer is up for the challenge.

During a recent interview with ESPN, McGregor mentioned Edgar as a possible future opponent when he returns from a hand injury.

He said: "Frankie Edgar is also up there, right there at the top of the list. Frankie has been very respectful. Frankie has always been respectful.

"He said that he wanted to say, 'I want to tell my grandkids that I fought Conor McGregor one day,' and to hear that...that's the fight to make (I told UFC president Dana White)."

Edgar caught wind of McGregor's comments and issued a response on his Instagram account, saying he's willing to delay his move down to bantamweight to make the fight happen at any weight Notorious chooses.

The Answer said: "You know I'm down to fight (McGregor), it should have happened a long time ago. I know I'm going down to bantamweight but for you any weight will do.

"Anytime any weight class you know I'm game."


Edgar's last fight was a defeat via decision against UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway at UFC 240 last month.

He is 5-3 over his last eight fights, with one of those losses coming via decision to Jose Aldo for the interim UFC Featherweight title, and the other coming against Brian Ortega.

McGregor hasn't stepped foot inside the Octagon since his loss to UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October last year and teased MMA retirement back in March.

However, he reversed on that retirement decision, and he hasn't stayed out of the limelight either, as he punched an elderly man in a pub in Dublin back in April.

McGregor wants to step back into the Octagon soon, and it looks like Edgar wouldn't mind being the first opponent he faces in UFC in almost a year.
