Well obviously Edgar was offered Conor when RDA pulled out because he was the number 1 contender but he didn't take the fight (said due to injury). So you can look at it that Conor is an active fighter and wanted to fight less than 3 months after his Aldo fight. Edgar wasn't ready. Aldo also refused to fight him (not to mention that he just KO'd him in 13 seconds and the fight made no sense). So Conor went for the tougher fight in the heavier weight class, and his opponent still pulled out. He fought another man on short notice and lost. How can you bash him for taking the fight? Or do you bash him because he would rather rematch Nate Diaz who beat him at 170 than rematching Jose Aldo who he beat in 13 seconds after a year of press conferences and staredowns?
