Frankie Edgar had a busy Wednesday.

After explaining to Michael Bisping on his radio show that trash talking wasn't his style, 'The Count' got Edgar to call his shot against UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor.

"I stop him within four," Edgar said.

The McGregor fight hasn't been booked, but Edgar is on the short list to co-host the next "red panty night." Nate Diaz and lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos both lobbied for the McGregor fight after wins at UFC on FOX 17 and Edgar isn't about to be left out.

Wednesday night, Edgar told fans on Twitter he'd be answering their questions for 10 minutes. Minutes turned to hours and 54 tweets later we see that Edgar might be re-thinking his approach.

Check out the highlights below and see Edgar's timeline for the complete offering.
