Frankie Edgar lost to Brian Ortega at UFC 222 via first round knockout, making it the first time ever that he’s been finished in his UFC career.

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor, who had previously expressed his intention to step in on short notice and face Edgar in the UFC 222 card, tweeted after the fight to express his thoughts on what had just gone done.

While McGregor has been on a snide tweeting spree of late, taking subtle shots at other fighters now and then, this message seems to be heartfelt.

Although some may perceive it as disrespectful to Brian Ortega that he claims that Edgar’s loss should have been at his hands, it only showcases that McGregor finds it befitting of Frankie’s career to have that one mega payday against the fight game’s biggest draw.

Conor McGregor last fought in the Octagon in December 2016, when he defeated Frankie Edgar’s teammate Eddie Alvarez via second round TKO to win the UFC Lightweight Championship.

Since then, he has only fought Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match in 2017, that he lost via 10th round TKO.

Meanwhile, UFC President Dana White recently announced that the company would strip McGregor of his Title the moment top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov and Interim Champion Tony Ferguson step into the Octagon to headline UFC 223.

If you recall, Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have been slated to fight a number of times before this, only to have the fight fall through on each occasion.

It is believed that McGregor will come back and fight in the UFC in the second half of 2018, against the winner of the fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson.
