Wow…the beef continues to heat up, but Floyd Mayweather isn’t even involved…
During a strange couple of weeks, Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi have become fierce enemies. The former boxing world champion flew to Las Vegas to help McGregor in preparation for Floyd Mayweather after some trash talking between the two.
With the entire combat sports world focused on this fight, updates from the McGregor-Malignaggi sparring session were popular. Fans really wanted to know how the Irishman fared against a seasoned pro.
According to Paulie, at first, things were heated. Up until this photo was released, Malignaggi actually spoke highly of McGregor:
McGregor’s Skewed Photos Proved Too Much For Paulie…
Obviously ‘The Notorious’ isn’t going to downplay himself, but many feel he crossed the line here. Releasing photos that appear to show him KO’ing Paulie in sparring, McGregor went too far for Malignaggi to continue.
This wasn’t the only photo released. Only the UFC photographers were allowed at the gym, everyone with a phone had to check them at the doors. Was McGregor simply trying to sell himself a little too hard?
Speaking out on social media, Malignaggi says McGregor knew exactly what he was doing:
Paulie Speaks About McGregor Moaning Like a Girl…
This coming week I’ll actually start to discuss a bit what happened Tuesday, he whimpers like a girl when he gets ripped to the body. I suppose the ass whipping didn’t suit him so he posted dumb pics again by Thurs while skipping sparring that day.
The footage is not controlled by showtime they weren’t allowed to record even 4 all access, only UFC PI surveillance cameras recorded this. The non disclosure is void dipshit I never got.
When I look back at the experience as a whole, not just sparring but as a whole, yes there was definitely an agenda beyond shadow of a doubt.

I actually beat his ass, 24 hrs off a flight 2 lol, which is why Im saying post the vid, I try not 2 be petty but seems it’s late 4 that now. Only his personal photographers allowed in the gym. Don’t just invent your own reality of things because it’s how u wish it to be buddy.
I came to help this camp out, not to be exploited, now your gonna get the truth though. Post FULL UNEDITED VIDEO FROM TUES night. The @ufc PI has cameras all over the gym recording 24/7. The video exists UNEDITED of rounds 1 through 12 Tuesday night, let the fans see.
This is not the first time McGregor has been accused of releasing misleading sparring footage. Back when he sparred pro boxer and former champion Chris Van Heerden, McGregor caught a backlash after CVH claimed the sparring footage was favorably edited.
Until now there’s been no video of Paulie vs. Conor, but we all know how stuff gets leaked on the internet…
