It was just yesterday that Mike Swick broke down the odds of Conor McGregor fighting again. 24 hours later, McGregor took to his Instagram and said, “I am fighting again. Period.” This wasn’t expected to come out today after all that has been going on with Dana saying Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov would be for the actual UFC lightweight title.
McGregor even went so far as to say that he was willing to replace Holloway and fight Frankie Edgar at 145 pounds.
I am fighting again. Period. I am the best at this. I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn’t enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need. I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. On top of the fighting. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ™
Everyone was left with even more questions, including our own Mike Swick. He took to YouTube and put out a quick (no pun intended) clip and invites you to join in on the conversation with him.
