Conor McGregor wants another big payday and is now looking to follow in the footsteps of his famed boxing rival Floyd "Money" Mayweather, who faced off against 20-year old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in Japan.


Floyd was reportedly paid $9 million for the fight, which did not last beyond the first round. After seeing all that money, McGregor now wants some for himself.

Conor tweeted out an invitation to Nasukawa for an MMA-style kickboxing bout, hoping for the same kind of return that Mayweather saw.


Whether or not this will happen is another story.

The UFC may not want to send their star man to Japan for another meaningless exhibition matchup, just to see Conor reap all the rewards.


McGregor's last UFC bout was definitely not one to remember for the Irishman. At UFC 229, McGregor was defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov via submission in the fourth round of their highly-anticipated matchup.


McGregor is not currently scheduled to participate in an upcoming UFC event, so perhaps we may see him in the octagon against Tenshin after all.
