Dana White shoots down Conor McGregor vs. Frankie Edgar

Dana White shoots down Conor McGregor vs. Frankie Edgar”

Nurmagomedov won that clash via fourth-round submission with both fighters being suspended for the chaos that ensued after the bout. The American fighter, Edgar, apparently had already confirmed his availability for the bout already.

Yesterday, Edgar claimed he would fight McGregor "at any weight class". "To take the Conor fight makes no sense".

"There you go White, make the bout".

Just earlier this month, Edgar told ESPN he would put his move to bantamweight on hold for a big money fight against McGregor.

If the McGregor vs. Edgar fight were to go ahead, it would likely be added to the UFC 245 event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, December 14.

The Dubliner has also revealed that he plans to donate his entire fight purse, which ought to be worth millions, to charity. First responders. One for All!

"I think it was in the works when Conor was kind of going on that featherweight tear. If he really wants to fight me, we'll fight". I don't know whether they don't want it because they don't want him to lose to me or they don't think they can build it.

"He can make the call".

While he has made no secret of his desire to secure a rematch with Nurmagomedov, the Russian has so far refused to even contemplate the idea of facing the 31-year-old in the Octagon again.

"Who else is top of the list?"

He was subsequently banned for six months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but looks unlikely to return against Edgar, who has a 23-7-1 record and lost by unanimous decision to Max Holloway at UFC 240 in July.

Ferguson is on a 12-fight unbeaten run stretching back to 2013, and last fought against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in June, earning a second-round TKO victory.

McGregor has been fighting to keep his reputation afloat, as controversy has mired his career and life as of late. And also Frankie has been very respectful.
