The former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar has been calling out the former UFC champ champ Conor McGregor for quite a while now. He has now revealed that he is even ready to delay his move down to bantamweight and will even willingly go up to welterweight to fight McGregor.
Edgar told TMZ in a recent interview that he would happily move up to welterweight to fight McGregor before finally cutting down to the bantamweight division. Here’s what he had to say:
It gave me hope that maybe I can get a fight with him, I’ve been trying to fight this guy for a really long time. I know he’s mentioned my name before, so who knows if it’s him throwing a lot of (expletive) on the wall and see if something sticks. But I’m game – he knows I’m game. I know I’m supposed to go down to bantamweight. Obviously (I) would delay that for the McGregor fight. I’ll fight wherever he wants to fight. We can do it at welterweight if he feels. He’s going to be bigger than me no matter where we fight at, so I’m game. I’ve kind of been trying to watch my weight a little bit now that bantamweight’s coming, but I wouldn’t mind pouring some pounds on now.
