Conor McGregor Offered To Fight Frankie Edgar At UFC 222

Dana White reveals Conor McGregor's reaction to being stripped of UFC lightweight title

"Period. I am the best at this", wrote McGregor.

McGregor hasn't competed since his victory over Eddie Alvarez in 2016 at UFC 205, where he claimed the lightweight title.

"I said in the last press conference, that fight will be for the title", White told TMZ. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. Since then, White maintained that McGregor would be stripped of the title if he continued his extended leave of absence. "It's not for the interim title". But, the promotion's boss man still won't definitively say when Conor McGregor will be stripped of the belt.

Conor McGregor has announced he intends to return to the UFC, and stated he put himself forward to fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 after Max Holloway's withdrawal but his offer was rejected.

The infamous "Money Fight" followed soon after as McGregor entered the boxing world to earn a lucrative payday in his 10th round loss to Floyd Mayweather in August of a year ago.

"I say it all the time, with that kinda money, Conor might never come back".

Chris Taylor of BJPenn.com, first reported that the fight would be for the undisputed title back in January.

The brash Irishman has yet to put the lightweight title on the line, having held it for 15 months without setting foot in the Octagon again, and appears on the brink of being stripped.

McGregor now is in negotiations with the UFC on a new contract. He added that neither side is in current talks about a rematch and there's "nothing done". He should have fought Frankie two years ago. There were some reports that McGregor could return to the octagon to face either Max Holloway or old foe Nate Diaz. He did mention August or September as possible return dates, but those are up for debate as of right now.

With McGregor idle, White booked a lightweight championship bout for April 7 at UFC 223 between interim champion Tony Ferguson and unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov.
