Tenshin Nasukawa responds to Conor McGregor’s profane post on Floyd Mayweather fight

Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor had quite the reaction to news of the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa.

And now Nasukawa has quite the response for McGregor.

Mayweather, 41, shocked the combat sports world late Sunday night when he appeared at a press conference in Japan to announce he would fight 20-year-old kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa on Dec. 31 at Rizin FF 14 in a fight that has yet to finalize a rule set.

In a profanity-laced Instagram post Monday, McGregor appeared as confused as anyone, calling the duo of Mayweather and Nasukawa “something out of rush hour 5,” a reference to the “Rush Hour” movie franchise starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

On Tuesday, Nasukawa had a response for “The Notorious” (via Twitter):

Hello, Mr. McGregor.
My Name is Tenshin Nasukawa.
I am not Jackie Chan.
I promise to avenge your loss, so please watch my fight.@TheNotoriousMMA

McGregor, who is coming off a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last month at UFC 229, tried his hand at boxing Mayweather last year and failed. McGregor lost by 10th-round TKO in “The Money Fight.”

Nasukawa now has promised to do different when he meets Mayweather on New Year’s eve at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Nasukawa is 4-0 in MMA and 27-0 in kickboxing. In his most recent bout, Nasukawa defeated former UFC fighter Kyoji Horiguchi by unanimous decision in a kickboxing match.
