Just two weeks after Floyd Mayweather and Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa fought on New Year’s Eve in Japan, it looks like that the exhibition bout fever has also reached the MMA world.
UFC welterweight contender Mike Perry took to Twitter and called out Irish MMA star for an exhibition bout.
How about an exhibition bout with me @TheNotoriousMMA

“How about an exhibition bout with me @TheNotoriousMMA“, Perry wrote on Twitter.
This tweet comes after Conor McGregor revealed on Social media calling out Tenshin Nasukawa for an exhibition bout. Conor McGregor must have seen the solid money his former rival Mayweather made for a 3 rounds exhibition match. Mayweather made close to ₹45 Lakhs per second in the exhibition fight.

“I wish to go to Tokyo to face Tenshin Nasukawa in a Mixed Martial Arts exhibition bout,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely, the champ champ,” he added in a tweet directed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship and his management company Paradigm Sports.
McGregor’s fighting future is currently unsure, as he awaits his sanction from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the UFC 229 post-fight brawl in October. The hearing is scheduled for Jan. 29, 2019 and Mike Perry is coming off of a loss to Donald Cerrone.
