Conor McGregor had strong words for Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa after their match was announced earlier this week by RIZIN for the Dec. 31 event in Saitama, and it didn’t take long for the Japanese star to respond.
Nasukawa, who is 27-0 in kickboxing and 4-0 in MMA, will face the boxing legend in a fight which the exact ruleset has yet to be announced, but vowed to “avenge” McGregor’s defeat to Mayweather.
“The Notorious”, who was stopped in the 10th round by Mayweather in a boxing match, called the 50-0 boxer “mad little bastard” and asked if Nasukawa was “Jackie f*cking Chan” in a profane Instagram post.

Nasukawa took on Twitter to respond to the UFC star.
