Just last week, Conor McGregor challenged Nasukawa to an exhibition match of their own.
Look what Floyd Mayweather has started..
Japanese kickboxer Nasukawa willing to face McGregor after callout - but names the conditions Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa has responded to a callout by Irish UFC megastar Conor McGregor, who declared in a social media post he wanted to face the youngster in an MMA exhibition fight. The exhibition fight took place on New Year's Eve and was supposed to last for three rounds, but Mayweather TKOed his opponent in around two minutes in the first round.
"Please arrange this, this instant". Yours sincerely. The champ champ'.
Earlier, McGregor offered to organise an "exhibition bout" with the Japanese kickboxer sometime before summer 2019, but under MMA rules.

US officials refrained from accusing the vehicle manufacturer of intentionally creating software to cheat on emissions tests. The Justice Department said the settlement does not resolve an ongoing criminal investigation into Fiat Chrysler's conduct.
It's unclear why McGregor tweeted to ask for a fight with Nasukawa, who would be even more undersized against the Dubliner than he was against Mayweather.
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.
His tweet is interesting because if those conditions were mandatory, then it is a given that McGregor will not be able to fight him simply because McGregor can not get down to 127 pounds. I will fight my RISE world GP this year so please watch your diet and wait for me!'
Considering the fact that McGregor has never weighed in any lighter than 145 lbs for fights in the Octagon and looked to be on death's door on several occasions after drastic weight cuts to featherweight, it's hard to fathom him being able to reach a weight anywhere near Nasukawa's demand.
