Conor McGregor’s Coach Teases Fight With Frankie Edgar At UFC 200

Conor McGregor’s Coach John Kavanagh recently wrote a blog at 42.ie where he teased that McGregor’s next fight after UFC 197 will be against Frankie Edgar. The proposed fight would take place at UFC 200 in July. Here’s what Kavanagh had to say:

The elephant in the room in this situation, of course, has been Frankie Edgar. If Conor’s next fight was announced as being against Frankie, there would be a lot of complaints about him cutting too much weight and being too big for the rest of the 145lbs guys. People would also claim that he was running from Rafael dos Anjos. Instead, they’ll say he should be staying at featherweight and that he’s afraid of Frankie. But as I’ve said many times before, it’s great that questions are being asked because answering them is what sport is all about. The day there are no more questions being asked of you is the day you’re no longer relevant. No matter who Conor’s next opponent was going to be, people would complain. There’s no getting away from that. There are boxes to be ticked and, by the time Conor retires, he’ll have addressed them all. But they can’t all be done at the drop of a hat. We can only take it one at a time. Rafael dos Anjos is next. After that, maybe Frankie Edgar will get his chance at UFC 200 on 9 July. We’ll see.

McGregor will next be fighting against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197 in March.
