According to Conor McGregor's latest tweet, the former two-division UFC World Champion wants to set up an "exhibition" fight against Tenshin Nasukawa.

Not to be outdone by his old adversary, McGregor took to Twitter on Sunday night to issue a challenge to the Japanese kickboxer, outlining that he wishes to fight him "before this summer".

Like Nasukawa, McGregor was also stopped by Mayweather in his pro boxing debut in a bout that went on to record the second highest pay-per-view buy rate in the sport's history.

At UFC 229, McGregor made his UFC return in a highly awaited Lightweight title fight against current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who pretty much dominated the Irishman from the get-go during their bout in Las Vegas, Nevada.

McGregor signed off the post by tagging his management company, Paradigm, and the UFC.

Please arrange this, this instant.

Apparently, Nasukawa was flattered that McGregor wanted to fight him. "Yours sincerely The champ champ", he Tweeted.

The former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion followed up that tweet with an even more freakish post, declaring himself the real Django and seemingly calling for no rules.

Yet another superfighter is interested in facing Tenshin Nasukawa, 20, of Tokyo, Japan.

The Mayweather fight had freaky build and even more bewildering finish. "58kg [127 pounds], kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future" - Tenshin Nasukawa on Twitter.

Do you think that, if a deal that is favorable for both fighters can be reached, we could see McGregor and Nasukawa fight this year?
