Frankie Edgar’s Coach Taunts Conor McGregor With Sarcastic Comment For Avoiding Fight

Now that it’s out in the open and officially confirmed by the UFC that UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is moving up to challenge Rafael dos Anjos to attempt to win the UFC Lightweight Championship and hold both titles simultaneously, the Frankie Edgar camp is doing their part to get “The Notorious” champion back to defend his original UFC title against the man who deserves it.

Respected MMA coach Mark Henry took to social media, posting a very sarcastic comment taunting the Irishman for his belief that fear has motivated his move to the 155 pound division instead of defending his 145 pound title against the former 155 champion who earned the next 145 pound title shot — his fighter, Frankie Edgar.

Henry posted the following on his official Instagram this week:

“@thenotoriousmma and @coach_kavanagh unlike most of the 145 pd division that is upset you’re going up I’m not. I want to congratulate you on actually fighting men your own size. I mean walking 175-180 fighting at 155 takes a brave man. When you say 99 % of people couldn’t make the weight cut Conner makes to 145 your right, because 99 % of the fighters aren’t as scared as Conner to have to drop that much weight. Fear could will a man to do amazing things. Now why don’t you drop the security blanket and leave the 145 pd belt and go full blown BIG BOY. Congratulations again……. Almost. PS @frankieedgar walked 156 when he won 155 title.”

UFC confirmed Conor McGregor vs. Rafael dos Anjos for the UFC Lightweight Championship as the main event of UFC 197 this week, with Holly Holm‘s first defense of the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Miesha Tate as the co-main event for the pay-per-view event scheduled for March 5th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
