“I am fighting again. Period.”

Those were the words of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor through his social media page on Thursday.

McGregor, who uses the outlet to update fans on his life and career, is expected to be stripped of the UFC championship before Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov fight in April.

“Notorious” won the belt in 2016 with a victory over Eddie Alvarez while holding the UFC featherweight title. He was forced to vacate that belt without ever defending it. Since that time, he has fought Nate Diaz at welterweight and competed in a boxing match vs. Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor revealed during his post that he offered to face Frankie Edgar next weekend at UFC 222 after featherweight champion Max Holloway was forced out.

“I am the best at this,” he wrote. “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™”
