Tenshin Nasukawa Responds To Conor McGregor Calling Him Out

McGregor posted a public message, expressing his wishes to travel to Tokyo, where he'd fight Nasukawa in a mixed martial arts battle.

Nasukawa's name has featured quite a lot in mainstream media recently due to his ill-fated boxing exhibition against Floyd Mayweather on New Year's Eve, when the Japanese kickboxer was dropped three times in one round and finished in little over two minutes. It's unclear whether the Irish fighter will agree to limit his fighting style to kickboxing rules or if he will manage to fit the weight margin.

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

Now Nasukawa has replied in punctual fashion, but has his own preferred conditions. I'm honored 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.

Astronomers Clock a Black Hole Spinning at Half the Speed of Light
The stellar-mass black hole, around 10 times more massive than our sun, was discovered after a enormous X-ray flare in March 2018. The chances of detecting such a scenario would be exceedingly slim. "We would've been extremely lucky to find such a system".

In a followup Tweet, Nasukawa reminded that he will soon be competing in the RISE World Grand Prix, and encouraged Conor McGregor to watch his diet and wait for him."I will fight my RISE world GP this year so please watch your diet and wait for me!"

Nasukawa has named his terms for the bout by demanding McGregor fight under kickboxing rules and weigh no more than 128lbs, which makes the match-up something of an impossibility considering the fact that the Irishman struggled to make 145lbs in his days as a featherweight.

So, what do you all think?

Still, you could see this rumour milling around as both fighter's keep themselves in the headlines and the possibility of a lucrative future bout bubbling away.
