Conor McGregor sent the MMA world into meltdown with an Instagram post last night confirming his intention to fight in the UFC again.

However, what really grabbed the attention of everyone was his assertion that he offered to step in on short notice after Max Holloway pulled out of the UFC 222 headliner and face Frankie Edgar.

McGregor also mentioned that the only reason the fight didn’t materialise is because the UFC didn’t didn’t have sufficient time to ‘generate the money’ to get him to fight.

Frankie Edgar’s camp did not respond too kindly, however, to McGregor’s insinuations about the fight.

Edgar’s incensed manager Ali Abdelaziz went on TMZ and absolutely trashed McGregor, saying that he constantly ducked his client.

Let me tell you about Conor McGregor. He’s like a prostitute, used to make high-dollar money, but she got old and nobody wanted her anymore.

This f*cking guy. For three years, he did everything he can not to fight Frankie Edgar.

He had so many opportunities. Now he wants to fight Frankie? That’s funny

But the outspoken Ali Abdelaziz wasn’t the only one from Frankie Edgar’s camp to reply to McGregor’s post as even the UFC Featherweight’s normally soft-spoken coach, Mark Henry, had his say about the Irishman.

In his Instagram post replying to McGregor’s original statement, Henry had this to say.

You will NEVER EVER have the heart of Frankie or integrity.

It’s soo soo simple if your dog crap post is true fight Frankie next.

Weather it be mma or boxing. ( And I promise you he won’t hammer fist on top your head he knows the rules). But YOU WON’T!

It’s pretty clear that Frankie Edgar’s camp didn’t take kindly to McGregor’s statement, while they prepare to face undefeated fellow Featherweight contender Brian Ortega at UFC 222.

Edgar himself, however, remained classy as ever. He tweeted out his intention to focus on Ortega next, claiming that he would be willing to face anyone after that.

What do you think of this whole McGregor – Edgar fiasco? Will they ever fight inside the Octagon?
