Conor McGregor called out for history-making title fight by UFC champ at America’s most iconic fight arena

LEON EDWARDS has proposed giving Conor McGregor a history-making UFC title fight at Madison Square Garden.

McGregor became the first UFC champion to ever holds two-division belts at the same time when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in 2016.

He added the 155lb lightweight strap to his 145lb featherweight belt at the iconic MSG – but no one has ever been a three-weight ruler.

So Edwards – who defends his welterweight title against Belal Muhammad on July 27 – is ready to give McGregor a crack at history.

He said on The MMA Hour: “Why not? Let’s give him the opportunity to become three-division world champion.

“Give me the opportunity to take out a guy like Conor McGregor. New York, that would be perfect. That is the fight.

“I feel like he’s got to take out Michael, I take out ‘No-one-remembers-his-name’ and we’ll go from there. We’ll go to New York, MSG, let’s go!

“That’s the fight. We’ve got business to take care of, but that’s the fight. That’s what needs to happen and it should happen.”

McGregor, 35, returns after three years out on June 29 against Michael Chandler, 38, at UFC 303.

A month after, Edwards, 32, defends his 170lb gold against challenger Muhammad, 34, at UFC 304 three years on from their no-contest bout.3

Edwards backs himself and McGregor to emerge victorious to help set up the super-fight at the most famous American arena of all time.

He said: “I heard a little noise but nothing to get excited about.

“Like I said, we’ve both got fights on our hands that we need to get past first before getting that far in.

“I have to go out there and take of Belal, he goes out there and takes care of what he needs to take care of, and we’ll go from there.”3Leon Edwards proposed giving Conor McGregor a history-making UFC title fightCredit: Getty
