Coach Kavanagh wants McGregor to fight Frankie Edgar in his return!

Previously, the Notorious stirred up the water again with a mysterious tweet that he will be taking part in a fight on December 14th in Dublin. You can check our article on this right HERE! In case you didn’t remember, Conor McGregor went through an extended layoff after facing the four-round throttling at the hands of Khabib Nurmamagomedov. Over the weekend, Dana White also confirmed that the UFC was in negotiations with McGregor.

Moreover, he shared that McGregor would likely fight early in 2020. Now, that left us with a big question: who will he fight? Well, it seems like McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh already has someone in mind! In a recent interview, Kavanagh expression his interest “I think him and Frankie Edgar would be a great fight,”. Furthermore, he stated “I think it was in the works when Conor was kind of going on that featherweight tear. He’s an ex-champion, great fighter”

“Yeah, if it was me, I would love to see the Frankie Edgar fight this year if possible. And then go on another run in 2020.” – he added. So far, you’ll be surprised to know that this is not the first time both parties have been linked to one another. When the Notorious won the featherweight title by knocking out Jose Aldo, Edgar reportedly was meant to be his first title defense rival. Then after that, McGregor also claimed Edgar as someone he’d like to meet at the case when talking about his comeback. On the other hand, Edgar has shown his plan to drop down to 35 pounds these days. However, it seems like he can put off the shift a bit to take a McGregor fight.

Are there any other opponents?

Besides Edgar, it would be interesting to see the fight between McGregor and Justin Gaethje, who the Notorious has been calling out for a fight on his Tweet. Which names do you want to see in the cage? Drop a comment to let us know!
