Conor McGregor Asks For Exhibition Match With Tenshin Nasukawa

Nasukawa Mc Gregor and Mayweather

EXHIBITION FIGHT The former UFC champion whats for fight the kickboxing star

Conor McGregor hasn't fought since tapping out in the fourth round to Khabib Nurmagomedov, but it now appears he has his next opponent in mind.

Nasukawa, who was recently defeated by Floyd Mayweather in a one-sided Boxing Bout under Rizin, is a former Rise Bantamweight Champion.

Days later, the fight was back on again, and Mayweather wound up winning in Japan via a first-round knockout, reportedly earning $9 million for less than three minutes of work on the day.

While kicking was not permitted in the fight, McGregor wants to take Nasukawa on in a Mixed Martial Arts bout. "Yours sincerely, the champ champ", former two-weight UFC champion McGregor tweeted, tagging the UFC and promoters Paradigm Sports Management in his message.

'Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant.

But mostly Trump still wants his wall, which Democrats describe as immoral as well as no solution to illegal immigration. The number of illegal border crossings is down from 1.6 million in 2000 to less than 400,000 previous year .


Yet another superfighter is interested in facing Tenshin Nasukawa, 20, of Tokyo, Japan.

It's unclear why McGregor tweeted to ask for a fight with Nasukawa, who would be even more undersized against the Dubliner than he was against Mayweather.

Thank you very much for remembering my name. "58kg [127 pounds], kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future" - Tenshin Nasukawa on Twitter.

McGregor is now on suspension stemming from a UFC 229 brawl with former opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov and his teammates so an exhibition match does actually make sense, though that's where the sense ends.

Max Holloway and Tony Ferguson are also in the mix to fight the pair, should Conor be forced to get into a competitive bout rather than a big-money exhibition.
