Conor McGregor Will Be Laughing His Head Off At Frankie Edgar's Push For A Title Shot

Conor McGregor Will Be Laughing His Head Off At Frankie Edgar's Push For A Title Shot

Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 is the fight the fans want to see. Whatever about the lightweight belt coming next, you have to think Dana White and co. have that July date marked out for McGregor's first defence of his featherweight belt. As long as Edgar goes without getting a shot at McGregor, there's room to argue that the Dubliner hasn't faced the best fighters in the featherweight division.

Granted, Edgar lost to Jose Aldo on his UFC featherweight debut but that was back in early 2013. He's had five fights since then and looked extremely impressive, most notably with his first round KO of Chad Mendes a couple of weeks ago.

You'd have to think that either McGregor's first featherweight defence will be against Edgar or he gives up the belt and concentrates on lightweight. Barring injury, that's the only logical course of action. Sure, Rafael dos Anjos or even Nate Diaz may be next up but his return to featherweight simply has to be against Edgar.

Which is why 'The Answer's' latest tweets really don't make a whole lot of sense. The tweets, particularly the grammar and spelling, are not exactly what fans have come to expect from Edgar. He's a well spoken guy who knows how to string a sentence together and he's a respectful guy. Which doesn't exactly match with the incessant tweets that he's been firing out over the past day or so.

Horrendous attempts at trash talk. It's rather unbecoming of a fighter who fans have a lot of respect for. Is it simply the McGregor effect?

Possibly not. As Severe MMA pointed out, Edgar's manager was caught out fairly obviously trying and failing to manage two twitter accounts.

Having your manager try to big up a fight with some of the worse tweets we've ever seen is not the best look for someone who wants to be taken as a serious contender for the title. Don't get us wrong, we want to see that fight more than any other, but perhaps it would be a good idea for Edgar to take his twitter account back for a couple of months.
