Just days ago, Mike Swick spoke on Conor McGregor and what he thought the future held for him. Just now, Conor took to Instagram and said “I am fighting again. Period.” He even claims he was turned down by the UFC after stepping up and saying he’d take the Frankie Edgar fight at 145 pounds. Just like that, MMA is flipped upside down.
Check out his statement.
I am fighting again. Period. I am the best at this. I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn’t enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need. I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. On top of the fighting. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ™
