While there has been no official confirmation yet that Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will have their highly anticipated welterweight rematch at UFC 200, it was reported last week that the UFC had issued contracts to both fighters.
The way Frankie Edgar’s manager sees it, the UFC is to blame for not getting a fight booked between McGregor and Edgar. Ali Abdel-Aziz took to Instagram to blast not only McGregor, but the UFC as well!
When history speaks for itself, Frankie Edgar will go down as the guy who fought anyone at any weight, any time, and anywhere. But when history speaks for @thenotoriousmma he was a ufc champion who hand picked his opponents and chose a guys out of shape to fight him and he ducked frankie. Every media member I talked to, a majority of the fans wants to see Edgar vs Mcgregor but Conor’s coaches since he lost to Nate Diaz for every interview they talk about everyone else except for frankie. At this point im blaming the @ufc for not making this fight happen because I think it’s really up to them and they can make Conor fight frankie. Im done with this. It’s been a miserable last 4 months talking and negotiating getting this fight to happen but now I realize the only person who needs to step up and say he wants to fight frankie is Conor. But I don’t believe he wants to because he and everyone else knows that frankie would whoop his ass. I have 0 respect for a champion who ducks contenders and that’s that.
In a perfect world, who would you rather see McGregor fight at UFC 200? Frankie Edgar or Nate Diaz?
