Conor McGregor Tried to Fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, But Was Denied

McGregor won the interim UFC featherweight tittle by defeating Chad Mendes in July of 2015.

McGregor on Thursday said that he tried to get back in the Octagon to save UFC 222, which is slated for March 3 in Las Vegas, when UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway had to pull out of his title fight with Frankie Edgar due to an ankle injury.

“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,” McGregor wrote on Instagram.
