After his defeat to Nate Diaz last weekend at UFC 196, Conor McGregor is expected to move back down to the Featherweight division to defend his Featherweight Championship.

That fight, whoever it may be against, is expected to take place at UFC 200 later this year, in what is highly anticipated to be a star-studded match card.

Several fighters have already stated their interest in fighting McGregor for his title, and one of those is Frankie Edgar, who has recently said to The Notorious: "If he's got balls, he'll pick me." Now he has released a video calling out the Irish fighter further.

The video, posted on his Twitter account, was a horror-themed nursery rhyme, inspired by the classic 1984 film "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and the infamous nursery rhyme for Freddy Krueger.

The lyrics for Edgar's version go: "1-2, Frankie's coming for you, 3-4, You better guard your jaw, 5-6, Conor doesn't want this, 7-8, July 9 is the date, 9-10, Iron Army till the end."

Creative indeed, and it certainly does add some fuel to the fire for this potential match, but McGregor still has plenty of other possible opponents as well.

The current UFC Featherweight Champion still hasn't given any indication as to who his next opponent might be as he hasn't really said much on the subject since losing via submission to Diaz last weekend.

Edgar has revealed he has been messaging UFC president Dana White too in order to get a fight against McGregor, according to Fox Sports.

He said: "I'm trying already. On the post-fight show I asked Dana right away, what's the deal? What's up with Conor? Who's getting him next? He said he didn't know. I've been texting him trying to set up a meeting.

"Eventually, we're going to get on the phone, hopefully this week."

No word on any of the matches for UFC 200 has been made yet by any officials, so it's anyone's guess at the moment who will be filling the main event spots on the card. McGregor will likely be there, but if he will be defending his title against Edgar is a different matter.

Jose Aldo has expressed his desire to fight the Irish fighter. He is still to have his rematch against The Notorious for the UFC Featherweight Championship which he lost to him at UFC 194 in December last year after holding the belt since November 2010. He will feel more entitled to the match than Edgar.

Whether it be Edgar or Aldo, UFC fans will definitely be paying close attention to see if McGregor can successfully defend his Featherweight Championship and put the loss to Diaz behind him.
