Frankie Edgar has admitted he was “very frustrated” after the UFC shot down any idea of his fighting Conor McGregor despite an agreement between the two. “The Notorious” and “The Answer” had agreed to a fight in December after some back and forth on social media and asked UFC president Dana White to make it happen. But White said the fight “makes no sense” and wasn’t going to happen for McGregor’s long-awaited return to the Octagon. “Yeah for me it was very frustrating,” Edgar said at UFC Fight Night Busan media day. “Usually when two sides agree, they kinda make it happen. “But the UFC had different plans. Obviously to fight Conor comes with a lot of notoriety and hopefully money. “So I kinda missed out on that but that’s the breaks. The fight game is not very forgiving and you don’t always get what you want.” UFC: Usman says McGregor ‘must want to die’ after title hint McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh also said Edgar was his ideal candidate for a comeback fight , believing the former lightweight champion had a “difficult” style but “one we’re familiar with”. McGregor will instead make his UFC return against Donald Cerrone at 170 pounds on January 18, while Edgar fights “The Korean Zombie” Jung Chan-sung in Busan this weekend.
