Former UFC champion Frankie Edgar put his #1 contender status on the line tonight in the co-main event of UFC 222 versus rising contender Brian Ortega. After a few minutes of feeling each other out, Ortega landed a brutal elbow and finished him off with an Ngannou like uppercut. Former Featherweight champion Conor McGregor responded to the fight on social media immediately afterwards. Check it out.
Frankie's career deserved for that to be against me tonight.
Love and respect always!
A true fighters fighter ❤
