UFC Frankie Edgar

Twas the night-night before Christmas, and all through the Twitterverse, not a Frankie Edgar (pictured) was tweeting … just his manager.

Late Wednesday night, Edgar hosted an impromptu Q&A on his verified Twitter account. All the questions he addressed revolved around UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

Most of the answers “The Answers” offered up were quite aggressive – “He’s been protected since day 1,” “Conor is on the run he wants easy fights,” I’m done getting screwed over my next fight will be Conor Mcgregor there is nobody else I am going to fight,” “This dude has been ducking me but he can’t duck me for the rest of his life,” etc.

The contentious responses from Edgar were so out of character that it lead some, yours truly, to believe that he was 10 glasses deep in eggnog.

Well, as it turns out, it was Edgar’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, who was the culprit. It seems as though Abdelaziz was trying to tweet on his and Edgar’s Twitter accounts at the same time and, let’s just say, there as a little mix up:


Oopsie! Props to @GrabakaHitman for the screen grab before Abdelaziz realized his error and deleted the post. Of course, as we all know full well by now, nothing is ever truly erased from the Internet just by a mere click of the “Delete” button.

McGregor wasn’t on Twitter last night, but his coach, John Kavanagh, was and he’s probably still ROFLMAO…
