    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.

    Nasukawa last fought in September, defeating UFC veteran Kyoji Horiguchi in a kickboxing match in Japan. He takes on Mayweather next at RIZIN 14, which is scheduled for the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

    If Nasukawa and McGregor were to meet after this interaction I bet there would be a lot of tenshin between them.

    Tenshin fights at 125 and even if he bulked up would be at a massive weight disadvantage.

    That being said, it certainly wouldn’t stop the Japanese from putting the fight on. Conor could be the Super Hulk for the fight.

    Though I hesitate to say this, if they were to kickbox at 145, due to Tenshin’s speed, ring experience, ridiculous striking angles and other worldly abilities, I would favour him to win.

    Acting a real cunt about it too.

    With outrage culture in social media being the way it currently is, I believe that the racism card is played way too often.

    That being said, in this case Conor made a foolish and immature attempt to disregard the validity of a fight of an opponent (who had previously beat the ever living shit out of him) in order to appease his ego.

    Conor insulted an accomplished Japanese fighter by disrespectfully disregarding his heritage and referring to him as a Chinese actor.

    That post most definitely made him look like a racist piece of shit.

    How cool would it be if after the Floyd fight they do a Co-promotion between ONE C and Rizin and makes DJ vs Tenshin the main event for that?

    I thought the Rush Hour comment was funny.

    The response was brilliant, though.

    Eh.........Why can't we all go back to the days when Tenshin would just say something like, "I'm not sure why he said that. I love Scotland." Everyone would grit their teeth a bit, laugh and that would be the end of it...

    Racism is when someone would say something like "I won't fight so and so because he's blank" or "I won't promote him" etc.

    What everyone screams "racism" at nowadays (when it actually makes sense) is nothing more than prejudice at best and more likely narrow-mindedness...

    Whatever...........................................................

    He basically said "All Asians look the same- Chinese or Japanese, you're all just 'Jackie Chan' to me."

    He could have actually learned his name, watched an easily found YouTube highlight video, and insulted the size difference, or something about Tenshin's fighting style. But that's not who Conor is.

    Hes no fighting tenshin, there was absolutely no call for him to run him down. Conor knew that he was Japanese purposely called him a Chinese actor in an attempt to further mock his abilities.

    You don’t want to call him a racist, fine. Call him an uneducated, classless clown who is now more famous for the way he talks than for winning fights.

    I think you guys are looking into this too much. I thought Connors tweet was a bit shit but and I honestly do belebel he wanted to disbarage the announcement a little.

    But I'm not gonna lie, I would've posted the rush hour thing if of thought of it first. Not because I'm racist, just because it's a horrible comparison that's funny.

    For the record after the deal was announced I said I hope Floyd knows what he signed because he can't read English let alone chinese.

    Obviously I know tenshin isn't Chinese. He's French. But I figured I could rattle both cages with one line so I bit down and swung.

    I am not a Connor hugger but I can't put it past him that he was just trying.to be a bit of a cunt when I do the same myself.

    And they do all look pretty much the same.

    Black

    White

    Asian

    Obviously they don't, but if you pick me a chiner, a Korean and a Japanese.

    A English. A fat American and a Danish.

    An angolan, a black guy from Antarctic, and Eddie Murphy.

    Is there obvious differences to the naked eye?

    I'm whiter than Tommy Robinson and I have Mexican and yank blood.
