In a series of tweets Conor Mc Gregor and Frankie Edgar agreed to a fight in December if Dana White can get it set

The UFC superstar has been more focused on promoting his new whiskey over the past 12 months than he has been with fighting but that looks like changing soon as McGregor has seemingly decided on his next fight. Nurmagomedov triumphed the fight through fourth-round submission before both the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters were suspended for the chaos evolved after the bout. (Edgar) is in a position; he was supposed to fight Aljamain Sterling, and Aljamain fell out and got hurt.

Now, Edgar has issued a response, saying he has already agreed to the matchup, it's simply on UFC president Dana White and McGregor to make it happen.

Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar might just take place at UFC 245 in December.

"There you go White, make the bout".

The Irishman echoed Edgar's challenge to White to organise the fight and even offered his potential purse to charity, but UFC's chief matchmaker believes the idea "makes no sense".

If Edgar indeed fought against McGregor, that would put an end to his plans to move to the bantamweight category in UFA following his loss to Featherweight Champion Max Holloway.

Though the possibility of the fight had mostly been hearsay, a recent Twitter exchange between the two fighters perked up the ears of those that have wanted to see McGregor fight Edgar for years. First responders. One for All! "If he really wants to fight me, we'll fight". "Conor, if you want to do this, let's do it, baby", Edgar added.

He told ESPN's Ariel Helwani: "Who else is top of the list?"

"I think Conor will fight next year", ended White.

"I don't know what it is". Runs on the back foot, shoots on the single leg. But ultimately ... if he forces it, it could happen.

Despite having his eyes set on a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov, it appears unlikely that fight will be made. And also Frankie has been very respectful.
