Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar – the fight that nobody knew that they wanted, but a fight that they might be getting soon! McGregor’s return to the Octagon has been awaited for a really long time now as he has been away since UFC 229 where he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, it appears that McGregor might be returning soon to face Frankie Edgar.
The two have been taking shots at each other on Twitter and it will be interesting to see if Edgar is who McGregor decides to face in his first fight back.

Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar Confirmed for UFC 245 in December?
Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar might just take place at UFC 245 in December. The two have been taking shots at each other over Twitter though there seems to be some amicability between the two as opposed to the usual bitter twitter fights that McGregor is known to have. McGregor tweeted Frankie Edgar a happy birthday and he said “see you in December.”
In a reply to this Tweet, Edgar said that he has already signed for the fight. This now means that the ball is now in McGregor and Dana White’s court. If all parties agree, Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar might actually happen at UFC 245!
Sorry but Frankie Edgar fighting Conor McGregor doesn’t excite me whatsoever. It doesn’t make sense at this point and is actually about 3 or 4 years too late 🤷🏼♀️

Who Will Win McGregor vs Edgar?
This is a fight Conor McGregor is expected to easily win. Compared to some other names such as Justin Gaethje, Dustin Poirier, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz, Edgar doesn’t really stand out as a huge star, but maybe this is why McGregor chose him – so that his return can be an easy win.
