Conor McGregor was surprised to hear about Floyd Mayweather’s imminent trip to RIZIN as the rest of us.

Yesterday, the boxer announced he’d be facing Tenshin Nasukawa on New Years Even in Japan, with the ruleset and weight class yet to be resolved. The news was a stunning turn of events, with Mayweather having been linked to McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Manny Pacquiao over the past few months.

And just like the rest of us, McGregor — who faced Mayweather last year in one of the biggest fights ever– was caught off guard. Today, he aired his thoughts on his social media, which appear able to be summed up as amused confusion.

“Is that a tracksuit or a sauna suit Floyd haha wtf,” McGregor wrote. “Is it hot in Tokyo or what’s the story here? That climate change is no joke fuck me hahah. What in the fuck is going on here? Who’s this little prick next to you ? That’s mad sh*t. 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.”
