Look what Floyd Mayweather has started.


In the wee hours of Monday morning and just days after welcoming a new child into his family, McGregor bizarrely requested a mixed martial arts exhibition bout against Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo.

- Tenshin Nasukawa on Twitter. Earlier this week, former UFC double champion Conor McGregor called out the 20-year old kickboxing phenom for an MMA exhibition similar to what Mayweather was paid $9 million dollars for.

That did not stop Cyborg from looking to get on the action, as she would tweet at McGregor and Paradigm Sports Management about wanting a fight on the hypothetical card.

Stranger things have most definitely happened but don't expect to see McGregor vs. Nasukawa taking place any time soon, folks.

It did not take long for the Japanese kickboxing sensation to respond to McGregor's callout. The Japanese fighter lost the bout by technical knockout after Mayweather dropped him three times in a little under three minutes of the first round.

Conor McGregor continues to prove himself one of the most unpredictable fighters on the UFC roster but even those closest to him would have raised an eyebrow following his latest call-out.

Dear Mr. McGregor. Thank you very much for remembering my name.

Before he can compete in the octagon again, McGregor will have to face the Nevada State Athletic Commission over his part in the post-fight melee that followed his loss to Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas. I will fight my RISE world GP this year so please watch your diet and wait for me!' Because it was an exhibition fight, it was not registered in either of the fighters' records.
