Who is Conor McGregor going to fight next? Former UFC lightweight king Frankie Edgar has been trying to get a shot at the ‘Notorious’ one ever since Jose Aldo pulled out of UFC 189 and Chad Mendes stepped in however has been unsuccesful thus far. However, ‘The Answer’ now has a big endorsement from Joe Rogan.
“Frankie Edgar is a way easier sell,” Rogan said on who should face McGregor next. “Maybe if Aldo comes back and wins in spectacular fashion, like if he and Cub Swanson have a rematch. Because Swanson-Aldo went the same way Aldo and McGregor went. Aldo hits him with a flying knee two seconds into the fight cracks him. Aldo has to win again. You could sell [Aldo-McGregor 2], but you wouldn’t sell it for as much as if Aldo won.
Who would Joe Rogan pick though if indeed the UFC went for McGregor vs. Edgar.
“Frankie Edgar is a 48-hour storm,” said Rogan. “You better have everything strapped down. He’s not going to get tired and he’s going to keep coming at you. He can wrestle his ass off. His footwork is sensational. I think Conor can knock out anybody, but you know what? So can Cub Swanson and he didn’t connect on Frankie. Frankie just wolverine’d him. Look at the Chad Mendes fight. Conor had a knee injury coming into it but Chad took him down at will. When Frankie gets you tired, what he did to Cub Swanson was incredible. Frankie’s not a huge draw but it’s a big fight.”Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Adam Milstead & Dinis "Sweetbread" Paiva
