Frankie Edgar (Dave Mandel/Sherdog)UFC Fighters Take to Twitter to Campaign for Jose Aldo’s Replacement Against Conor McGregor José Youngs June 23, 2015 Events, News, Spotlight The UFC has a golden ticket and his name is Conor McGregor. Following the news that the reigning UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has fractured his ribs during a sparring session, putting his UFC 189 title fight against McGregor in jeopardy, rumors have run rampant over whether the UFC will pull their Irish superstar from the card or simply find a replacement for the July 11 card. The logical sense would be to reschedule the highly anticipate matchup between Aldo and McGregor for the UFC 191 card in September, which is set to take place in Las Vegas on Sept. 5. After all, according to UFC President Dana White, the organization has poured more money into promoting UFC 189, specifically Aldo and McGregor, than any other event in UFC history. But this has not stopped several of the UFC’s 145-pounders from throwing their name into the hat for potential replacements against the the brash Irishman. The man that would make the most sense to step up would most certainly be former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, who sits at number one on the UFC’s featherweight ranking is currently riding a four fight winning streak. Staring at my phone like……… https://t.co/XamDf6PG4y — Frankie Edgar (@FrankieEdgar) June 23, 2015 However, not far behind him sits Max Holloway who is riding a career high six fight win streak, five of which ended in stoppage. I'm just a call away… @ufc @danawhite @lorenzofertitta @BrianButler_Au @seanshelby — Jerome-Max Holloway (@BlessedMMA) June 23, 2015 Even UFC lightweight Joseph Duffey, who scored a first round submission win over McGregor back in 2010 under the Cage Warriors banner has shown interest in a potential rematch. He is currently the last man to defeat McGregor If Jose is out I'm willing to step in and beat @TheNotoriousMMA again!! @ufc @danawhite — Joseph duffy (@Duffy_MMA) June 23, 2015 While they may be out of the running both Dennis Bermudez, who is coming off a first round submission loss, and Jeremy Stephens, who is riding a two fight losing streak, have pushed hard for the replacement position. I'll step up and fight McGregor at #ufc189 #OperationMENACE — Dennis Bermudez (@MenaceBermudez) June 23, 2015 Hey @ufc @seanshelby- We're calling for a reason. We hear Aldo is hurt. You know I will bring it. Let me fix the problem w/ the Irish clown. — Jeremy Stephens (@LiLHeathenMMA) June 23, 2015 Not surprisingly, former WEC featherweight kingpin turned bantamweight contender Urijah Faber, who is known to fight anyone at anytime, has thrown his added his name to the mix. If it makes dollars it makes sense. Put me in coach! @danawhite https://t.co/V8RJoogr9f — Urijah Faber (@UrijahFaber) June 23, 2015 UFC 189 is set to take place on July 11 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. If both Aldo and McGregor are indeed pulled from the card, the co-main event between reigning UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald is expected to be promoted to headlining bout.
