Knock down or push down? McGregor Malignaggi footage finally released

After weeks of talk, a video of Conor McGregor’s controversial sparring session with Paulie Malignaggi, has finally been leaked online. This comes ahead of the UFC star’s boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather later this month. Needless to say it doesn’t look too good for Paulie.

So where does the bad blood come from between Conor and Paulie?

Malignaggi, was drafted in by McGregor as a sparring partner, though not before the former two weight boxing champion made a number of derogatory comments about McGregor’s boxing ability. Malignaggi later stormed out of the camp after photographs emerged of him on the canvas, implying he had been knocked down.
