Following the successful “9 minute walk to $9 million” accomplished by Floyd Mayweather on New Year’s Eve, Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor expressed willingness to participate in an “exhibition bout” with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

But unlike the fight with Mayweather, which was conducted according to boxing rules, McGregor suggested an “MMA bout”.



Conor McGregor asked for the fight early this morning, and now the undefeated 20-year-old has responded, asking for the fight to be under kick-boxing rules, with a 58kg (127 lbs) weight limit.

He posted on Twitter: “Dear Mr. McGregor,

“Thank you very much for remembering my name. I’m honored that you would even consider fighting me.

“58kg, kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future.



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!”




Undefeated American boxing champion in numerous weight categories Floyd Mayweather participated in an “exhibition boxing match” on 31 December with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. The fight was planned to last 3 rounds of 3 minutes each, but the US boxer won it in the first round by technical knockout, dropping Nasukawa 3 times in a little over 2 minutes.

McGregor lost the bout with Nurmagomedov, which was his first fight after returning to MMA after a brief absence. The Irishman submitted to his rival after the latter performed a rear-naked choke on him. Following the fight, Nurmagomedov jumped out of the octagon and attacked McGregor’s coach, sparking a melee in which the Irish athlete also took part.

Both fighters were suspended by the NSAC, which is currently trying to determine a punishment for each of them. The penalty could include a fine and a temporary or even permanent suspension from fighting activities.
