The face of the fight game is ready to fight again

Conor McGregor is back.  The self-proclaimed "face of the fight game" took to Instagram to announce that he was ready to fight in the UFC again.

"I am fighting again. Period. I am the best at this."

McGregor's message went on to say that he had tried to step in and fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 when Max Holloway had to pull out.  He claims he was ultimately turned down because the UFC didn't have enough time to generate the money it would take to put the fight together. 

"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.I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. On top of the fighting. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ™"

Who knows if he's telling the truth when it comes to why the UFC wouldn't let him fight Frankie Edgar.  The best part is he's going to fight again.
