Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has a bout in mind for his next appearance – and no, it’s not coming in the Octagon.
McGregor took to social media to request an exhibition MMA match with Japan’s Tenshin Nasukawa, the same fighter Floyd Mayweather recently defeated in an exhibition boxing match.
After returning from an extended sabbatical from action, McGregor lost to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov last year. He also tested his skills against Mayweather in an official boxing match in 2017, dropping that via TKO.
