Edgar wants to take both titles from McGregor back-to-back

January 22, 2016 8:48 am by Evan Bell

While Conor McGregor is the UFC featherweight champion right now, he will have the opportunity to join BJ Penn and Randy Couture as the only men to hold belts in two weight divisions at UFC 197 when he faces Rafael dos Anjos for the UFC lightweight championship.

So far there has bene no word yet on when, or if, Frankie Edgar will get his featherweight title shot against McGregor; however Frankie Edgar would be more than willing to take both the featherweight and lightweight belts off McGregor’s hands if he wins at UFC 197.

He spoke to FOX Sports:

“I think that is the biggest fight, I think that’s the fight most people are interested in seeing and I’m hoping the UFC does the right thing and books me and Conor for UFC 200.”

“We can do it back-to-back and that will be UFC 204 or whatever, that would be the next biggest fight. I’m game. If they let me get my hands on him once, I’ll definitely re-do it.”

“I’m hoping I get to fight on the biggest card in UFC history and make history by winning two titles,” Edgar said. “I will be there March 5 and maybe I’ll have to parachute my ass into that Octagon, they can’t get me out of there.”

If McGregor wins at UFC 197, do you think we could see a McGregor vs. Edgar fight at UFC 200 for two UFC championships?
