Nasukawa Responds To McGregor

On Monday morning, Conor McGregor let the UFC, his agents, and the world know that he wants a fight with Tenshin Nasukawa in 2019. Just a few hours later Nasukawa agreed, but with a catch.

“Dear Mr. McGregor, Thank you very much for remembering my name. I’m honored that you would even consider fighting me,” Nasukawa wrote to McGregor.

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.”

His demands would be a fight under kickboxing rules and have both men fighting at a weight of 128 pounds, nearly 30 pounds lighter than McGregor’s fighting weight as a lightweight.

McGregor as a pro has yet to fight under 145 pounds, and has not fought at that weight in over three years, and while Nasukawa says these rules would  “would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future,” McGregor may not feel the same way.
