Tenshin Nasukawa responds to Conor McGregor’s Jackie Chan comment

The undefeated kickboxer has sent a message to McGregor

Tenshin Nasukawa had a matter-of-fact response to Conor McGregor’s Rush Hour jibe on Instagram.

Hours after Nasukawa was announced as an unexpected opponent for Floyd Mayweather, McGregor compared images from the first press conference to the poster for the popular movie trilogy starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

“What in the fuck is going on here? Who’s this little prick next to you? That’s mad shit,” McGregor wrote on Instagram.

“Like something out of Rush Hour 5 or something. Chris Tucker and Jackie fucking Chan back in this bitch. Fucking brilliant.

“Mad little bastard you are Floyd. Fair fucks to you mate. No lie. Fuck it.”

Disappointing but predictable details have since emerged about the fight, which will take place under the banner of Japanese MMA promotion RIZIN FF, and it’s apparently going to be no more than an exhibition boxing match which might be as short as three rounds.

Nasukawa, an undefeated kickboxer who is widely considered one of the greatest strikers in the world, has issued a calm retort to McGregor’s comment.

The 20-year-old vowed to avenge the Irishman’s defeat to Mayweather last summer, when McGregor was stopped in the 10th round by the boxing veteran, who moved to 50-0 with the win.
