Brendan Schaub Shares His Thoughts Of Exhibition Match Between Floyd Mayweather And Tenshin Nasukawa: “Of Course This Is Fake, It Was A Sh*t Show”
Brendan Schaub, a former UFC Heavyweight known for KO victory over Mirko Cro Cop, and a famous comedian, argues that the match between Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa was a setup!
Despite Tenshin Nasukawa usually fights at 122-pounds, he boxed in a Welterweight bout at 147 versus “Money”.
Floyd Mayweather literally destroyed the Japanese. The undefeated boxer knocked “Ninja Boy” down three times in the first round. Nasukawa’s corner threw in the towel, and the match was called off.

“I’ve seen better acting in pornos,” Schaub said.
“Floyd’s just doing his thing, he’s the aggressor. So it’s not as hard to fake it. But Tenshin needs acting skills. They should have got someone to work with him on falling down, getting hit in the face, and all that.”
“Of course this is fake. Who cares? But of course this is fake. Come on, you believed that? He made nine million, we should be celebrating that. Hopefully Tenshin made some money, they’re not releasing that. All we know is that Floyd got paid.
On the other side, in August 2017, Conor McGregor lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr in the tenth round, via TKO. Brendan Schaub praised the Irishman for his performance against “Money”.
“Let’s say this is real, which it’s definitely not, but let’s pretend it is. How good does that look for Conor McGregor? He didn’t get starched out, he didn’t get outclassed. It was a sh*t-show. But I guess the kid got paid, he got some publicity, he is an actual legit badass. So he gets the rub off that. His Instagram followers go up, his youtube, whatever he’s trying to do.”
Do you think Brendan Schaub is right? Do you believe the match was staged?
