Not quite done with Floyd Mayweather just yet, Conor McGregor recently revealed his thoughts on the famed boxer’s upcoming fight with Rizin Fighting Federation‘s Tenshin Nasukawa.

Taking to Instagram, the Irish MMA star took shots at Mayweather and the 20-year-old Japanese kickboxer questioning the validity of the matchup. Despite probably just looking to get under Mayweather’s skin, McGregor is now catching some criticism for questionably likening the duo to Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan‘s roles in the Rush Hour series. Taking notice of the comments, Nasukawa decided to launch a response where he promises to avenge McGregor’s loss and asks him to watch the fight. Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa will go head-to-head at Saitama Super Arena with rules still to be determined.

Check out Conor McGregor’s response and the Japanese fighter’s reply below.
