Nate says the UFC and Mcgregor knew that they would wind up fighting each other in the event of a Dos Anjos withdrawal, allegedly as a precursor to a fight with Lawler at UFC200. Even though they offered the fight to others, Neither Edgar, Pettis, Cerrone or anyone else for that matter we're really ever in the running, but we're just really a smoke screen to ensure Mcgregor's fight anyone, anytime, anywhere mantra remained intact. If there was ever a time where a fighter union was necessary it was now, as there are a few fighters to say the least who's careers are on hold because of the UFC's infatuation with Mcgregor. The reality is Mcgregor should have been made to defend the FW title before moving up, a fight and victory against Edgar would have left no doubt in anyone's minds that Mcgregor had effectively cleaned out the top end of his division and rightfully earned an immediate LW title shot. Business aside this sport suffers from complacency when it comes to keeping the promoter honest simply because MMA fans lazily accept the twisted farcical logic and outright lies that Dana and co. and now Mcgregor spew to us. The very few that understand the threat that Edgar was to Mcgregor are now deprived of seeing if McGregor even had an answer for Frankie Edgar. This is a fight real fans wanted to see and will now probably never will all because the UFC and McGregor have twisted the truth just enough to convince the masses that Frankie never really wanted the fight and that Mcgregor has moved on. McGregor won't lift the pay scale or do anything positive for MMA fighters over all, he will just do what he says, light a fire, walk away and watching it burn, shame on MMA fans for thinking that the Martial Arts in Mixed Martial Arts ever stood for anything but greed and selfishness.
