Conor McGregor has words of encouragement for Frankie Edgar.

Former UFC lightweight champion fought last week at UFC Fight Night 165 in Busan, South Korea against hometown hero Chan Sung Jung or better known to many as ‘The Korean Zombie’.

The fight didn’t go the way Edgar had hoped and ended up getting knocked out in the first round. Frankie Edgar took the fight in short notice as Brian Ortega was originally scheduled to fight at Busan.

Following his loss, Edgar released a statement on social media.

Well not what I had planned coming out here to South Korea, but win like a man and lose like one too. Hats off to the @KoreanZombie on a great performance. I think it may be time to cut this damn hair. Thank you to my family, team, and fans for the love and support. #FeFrankie Edgar tweeted.

However, former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor has always been supportive of Frankie Edgar and he showed it with his words of encouragement in a recent twitter post.

Remember what was told in shootouts Frankie! Stay low and keep firin!!! Forever an icon in this game! #FrankieBaby,” Conor McGregor tweeted.

Edgar also acknowledged McGregor’s word of encouragement.

MMA World united to encourage Frankie Edgar as well.

 

With this loss, Frankie Edgar has now lost two back to back fights this year. His first loss came earlier this year at UFC 240, where Max Holloway defeated him via unanimous decision. He is 4-3 in his last seven fights.

He was also scheduled to fight Cory Sandhagen at UFC Raleigh which is set to take place on January 25. This was supposed to be Edgar’s bantamweight debut. But with Edgar getting trashed in the first round in such a dominant fashion, he is now medically suspended for six months.

On the other hand, Cory Sandhagen’s fight is also cancelled from UFC Raleigh as the UFC couldn’t find him a short-notice replacement.
