Frankie Edgar is starting his campaign for another UFC title shot.
He made it very clear in his post-fight interviews that he wants the next featherweight title shot, even going as far as calling out UFC president Dana White, saying he was ducking him.
The former lightweight champion went on The MMA Hour and elaborated on his comments a little bit, but ultimately said the same thing, he want that title shot.
“Listen, when me and Cub (Swanson) were fighting, Cub was pretty much promised the next title shot if he beat me. So, you know, what does that mean? He’s promised the next title shot, so if I beat him, I should get it, right? … Then after I fought and beat Cub, he pretty much kind of told me that, most likely, if McGregor wins he’s going to get the title shot. He didn’t say it exactly, but in not so many words, he told me, ‘but you never know, maybe (Dennis) Siver could beat him.’ So if Siver beat him, that implied I was going to get the title shot. So I felt like he knew I got stepped over a little bit with McGregor, and here I am, I just blanked out Urijah — he owes me a title shot.”
