McGregor fancies exhibition bout with Nasukawa

Adjust Comment Print

Like Nasukawa, McGregor was also stopped by Mayweather in his pro boxing debut in a bout that went on to record the second highest pay-per-view buy rate in the sport's history.

"The Notorious" made his highly anticipated return to the Octagon last October at UFC 229 where he was submitted in Round 4 by the defending lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

But after taking such a pasting by Mayweather, Nasukawa has seemingly smartened up and said he would only agree to the fight on his terms.

The former featherweight and lightweight champion explained that he wants the fight to be a "mixed martial arts exhibition bout" although the manner of his call-out certainly appears to be more in jest than anything else.

Or perhaps the tweet was simply McGregor's latest dig at Mayweather, whom he never misses an opportunity to take a stab at, as noted by his New Year's Day dig. "Yours sincerely The champ champ", he Tweeted. The penalty could include a fine and a temporary or even permanent suspension from fighting activities.

With Mayweather cashing in for such an easy day of work, it's not hard to see why McGregor would see a fight against Nasukawa attractive.

"Thank you very much for remembering my name", Nasukawa wrote. Japanese fighter responded to former UFC double champ with a post in social media.
