Conor McGregor Calls Out Tenshin Nasukawa For Tokyo Superfight

Mayweather vs. Nasukawa topped a RIZIN card from Tokyo, Japan, filling out the iconic Saitama Super Arena, and it appears Conor McGregor wants a piece of the action, too.

Emerging as kickboxing and MMA sensation from Japan, the latter is a recent opponent of Floyd Mayweather Jr., who went through the ropes in Tokyo on New Year's Eve scoring the first-round TKO.

The fight, scheduled for three three-minute rounds, with Mayweather, 41, did a quick work of his foe Nasukawa. But unlike the fight with Mayweather, which was conducted according boxing rules, McGregor suggested an "MMA bout". The American previously defeated McGregor in the Irishman's professional boxing debut. "Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant". On Sunday evening, he took to his official Twitter account to tag the RIZIN FC fighter as well as the UFC and his management team, Paradigm Sports. "Yours sincerely. The champ champ". But c'mon. Can't McGregor call out somebody he'd like to fight in the UFC instead?

Recently Conor McGregor tweeted out that he's apparently interested in fighting Tenshin Nasukawa, and the striking sensation has already responded.

In a subsequent tweet he said: "I'm the real Django no holds barred".

"Thank you very much for remembering my name", Nasukawa wrote.

Fights against the likes of Dustin Poirier, Tony Ferguson, or maybe even a third fight against Nate Diaz could be a likely outcome.

If the defeat of Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa by Floyd Mayweather last week seemed like a farce to you then look away now.
