Tenshin Nasukawa names impossible terms for Conor McGregor challenge

RIZIN and young Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa have received a lot of attention in the last few months after they worked out a deal to bring Floyd 'Money' Mayweather over to Japan to fight Tenshin Nasukawa in a 3 round exhibition fight.

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

McGregor hasn't competed since his fourth-round submission defeat to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, and he has been linked with rematches against both Khabib and Dustin Poirier, who is also a leading contender in the UFC's lightweight division. 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'. I'm honored that you would even consider fighting me.

Dear Mr. McGregor. Thank you very much for remembering my name. However, he will not fight McGregor, unless McGregor agrees to some terms and conditions.

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.

Although McGregor crossed into different fighting territory when he took on Mayweather in a megamoney boxing match in 2017, stepping into a kickboxing bout against Nasukawa, who is undefeated in the sport, may be a step too far even for the unfailingly confident Irishman - and that's assuming his initial callout was serious.
