McGregor Wants Exhibition Fight Against Tenshin Nasukawa

It's pretty hard to tell if McGregor is being serious about wanting to fight the 20 year old kick-boxer and get a quick payday or if he is sending a message out to Floyd Mayweather in the hopes of rekindling their beef to set up a second mega-boxing fight.

Mayweather walked away with $9 million and Nasukawa stumbled away with a headache.

That did not stop Cyborg from looking to get on the action, as she would tweet at McGregor and Paradigm Sports Management about wanting a fight on the hypothetical card. The Japanese fighter lost the bout by technical knockout after Mayweather dropped him three times in a little under three minutes of the first round. Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely. The champ champ'.

Cyborg is pushing for a rematch with Amanda Nunes after losing her UFC featherweight title to her fellow Brazilian at UFC 232 last week but if that fight doesn't come to fruition, Cyborg also wants an exhibition bout on McGregor's undercard in the Japanese capital. I'm honoured that you would even consider fighting me.

And while Nasukawa is a popular figure in Japan, McGregor would very much be the A-side of any encounter, meaning he would be unlikely to bend to meet Nasukawa's ambitious requests.

Before he can compete in the octagon again, McGregor will have to face the Nevada State Athletic Commission over his part in the post-fight melee that followed his loss to Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas.

It looks like Nasukawa is very well aware of this fact as his second tweet called on McGregor to watch him fight at the RISE World Grand Prix and keep a close watch on his diet.
