Frankie Edgar may have one of his best birthdays ever. Since today was Edgar’s birthday, the UFC took to social media to give Frankie their best wishes. Seeing the message, Conor McGregor responded to the tweet. Implying that he wants to fight Edgar, fans exploded at the idea that the return of Conor could be sooner than later.

It’s well-known that McGregor has been eyeing an octagon return. Furthermore, Conor has mentioned on numerous occasions that he would love to fight Frankie. Believing Edgar’s style is the closest to Khabib Nurmagomedov truly entices Conor.

McGregor and Edgar Exchange Bout Agreement Tweets

Edgar then responded to McGregor’s comment in reference to December.

Fans were shocked when Edgar revealed that he has already told the UFC yes to the bout. While it’s not certain if Frankie signed an actual bout agreement or not, we can imply that Frankie agreed to the fight. At least verbally.

Five minutes later, Conor quickly responded back to Frankie’s tweet.

Verbally, Conor agreed to the bout as well. At least in the public eye on Twitter. Furthermore, Conor told UFC President Dana White to give his purse from the fight to charity. Lastly, he tagged his spirits company, Proper Number Twelve whiskey.

Making The Fight

Agreeing to the bout was easy for both parties. So, what’s to stop it from happening? Both men are willing to face each other in December. Negotiating money isn’t involved in Conor’s end. Could he fight could be announced faster than imagined? Do fans actually believe that McGregor’s return to the octagon would be for free?

We’ll have to pay close attention to both Frankie and McGregor’s interactions within the next few days. Making the fight should be easy according to what both men said. Conor has a chance to regain glory. And, if it’s not all smoke and mirrors, fans might be witnessing the return of the Notorious One right before their own eyes.
