After an embarrassing loss against Floyd Mayweather, Tenshin Nasukawa has agreed to fight Conor McGregor.
Nasukawa first faced off against Mayweather in an exhibition match, where he was forbidden from using kickboxing techniques. Ultimately, Nasukawa loss that match, but didn’t lose the interest of a few spectators.
Just last week, Conor McGregor challenged Nasukawa to an exhibition match of their own.
I wish to go to Tokyo to face Tenshin Nasukawa in a Mixed Martial Arts exhibition bout.
Before this summer.
Please arrange this, this instant.
The champ champ. @ufc @ParadigmSM

McGregor posted a public message, expressing his wishes to travel to Tokyo, where he’d fight Nasukawa in a mixed martial arts battle.
TN accepted the fight on Monday. However, he will not fight McGregor, unless McGregor agrees to some terms and conditions. Therefore, Nasukawa is demanding that McGregor drop down a weight class (featherweight) and agree to kickboxing rules.
But, according to Hypebeast, there’s been no response from McGregor yet.
So, what do you all think? Do you wanna see these two square off? We’d love for you to let us know with a comment below!
