Conor McGregor challenge to Japan kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa ACCEPTED

Conor McGregor is looking for his own payday against Tenshin Nasukawa after Floyd Mayweather's farcical $9 million exhibition bout with the Japanese kickboxer. "Yours sincerely The champ champ", he Tweeted.

And McGregor, who hasn't fought since his defeat to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, wants to fight Nasukawa as well.

Conor Mcgregor who continues to sit on sidelines as he's now awaiting his hearing from NSAC on Jan 29th.

Emerging as kickboxing and MMA sensation from Japan, the latter is a recent opponent of Floyd Mayweather Jr., who went through the ropes in Tokyo on New Year's Eve scoring the first-round TKO.

Unlike the fight against Mayweather, Nasukawa laid out exactly how he'd want to fight McGregor, with rules that may not fly with the "Champ Champ".

McGregor fought Mayweather in a boxing bout, losing in the 10th round after a tense fight in April previous year. However, if McGregor isn't given an immediate rematch, then the former two-division champion is willing to fight anyone that the UFC has to offer at this point in time.

Rockets: F James Ennis, who had been questionable with a strained right hamstring, returned after missing the previous 10 games. The Kings, who have been a pleasant surprise this season, got an efficient 29-point production from shooting guard Buddy Hield.

He called on the UFC and Paradigm Sports management to get the bout organised before the summer.

"Dear Mr. McGregor, thank you very much for remembering my name". The penalty could include a fine and a temporary or even permanent suspension from fighting activities.

Rather than stay mum, Tenshin has since responded to McGregor.

The former double champ is now awaiting his sanction for the UFC 229 post-fight brawl in October.

Max Holloway and Tony Ferguson are also in the mix to fight the pair, should Conor be forced to get into a competitive bout rather than a big-money exhibition.
