Conor McGregor Wants Floyd Mayweather’s Sloppy Seconds

On New Years Eve, superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather trekked to Japan to fight kickboxing stud Tenshin Nasukawa. It, uh, wasn’t even a remotely close match.

It was, however, the easiest payday Mayweather has seen in a while. You know those Japanese – they’ll pay through the nose to see one of their countrymen get destroyed by a foreigner.

Now Irish whiskey-maker Conor McGregor wants in on the action. I mean, poor Tenshin didn’t even last a full round with Mayweather, so how long could he last against McGregor in an MMA bout?

For his part, Tenshin seems cool with the idea. Of course, he stipulates that McGregor will have to cut down to just under 128 pounds for that fight to happen. (Note: McGregor looks ghastly when he cuts down to 145 – ain’t now way he can make 128 pounds!) Also, kickboxing only, son.

RIZIN 14 Results: Floyd Mayweather Eats Tenshin Like Sushi, The Gooch Taps Caldwell

Japan loves its big New Years Eve fighting extravaganzas, so RIZIN 14 just went down to oblige them. Yes, there were tons of fights full of names you’ve never heard of, but the two biggest fights were at the top, and they featured a somewhat well-known boxer, a UFC vet and a Bellator vet.

In the co-main event, the aforementioned UFC vet was Kyoji Horiguchi – a.k.a. “the Gooch” – versus Bellator champ Darrion Caldwell. Meanwhile, the main event had Japanese kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa against Floyd Mayweather.

Now, if you thought the Mayweather fight was going to be a work, or some sort of half-hearted attempt at combat entertainment, well, nope. Mayweather came out, chased Tenshin down, ate maybe one hard left with a smile, and proceeded to drop the Japanese star three times with punches to the dome. Less than a round, three knockdowns, and while Tenshin was stumbling around trying to remember where he was, his corner threw in the towel.
