Conor McGregor has his sights set on Tenshin Nasukawa.
Love him or hate him, Conor McGregor sure knows how to keep his name in the headlines. Hot off the heels of a crushing defeat at the hands of Floyd Mayweather at Rizin 14, Tenshin Nasukawa is being called out by Conor Mcgregor for a similar kind of bout, this time with MMA rules.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion recently fought against Khabib Nurmagomedov back in October 2018. He lost the bout by submission in the fourth round. While many people were anticipating McGregor to call for a rematch with his rival, the former champion has instead set his sights on Tenshin Nasukawa in a move no one could have anticipated.

Tenshin Nasukawa had some thoughts of his own on the matter.

Dear Mr. McGregor. Thank you very much for remembering my name. I’m honored that you would even consider fighting me. 58kg, kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future 👍 I will fight my RISE world GP this year so please watch your diet and wait for me! #RISE #Cygames #RIZIN #kickboxing @thenotoriousmma
What do you make of these turn of events? Should Conor McGregor really fight Tenshin Nasukawa? Will the UFC and Rizin make it happen?
