Conor McGregor: Paulie Malignaggi claims he made UFC fighter whimper

McGregor: “Malignaggi got his a** whooped and there was only one winner in our session” Mayweather vs McGregor insider BLASTS Irishman after sparring standoff

Does he just want to beat up McGregor, or actually help him prepare for Floyd Mayweather?

In an interview with The MMA Hour (via MMA Junkie), Paulie Malignaggi spoke about his falling out with Conor McGregor.

It certainly has captured the general public's interest. The fighter in camp does 12 straight, but when the fighter in camp does 12 straight he'll do like four with one guy then alternate and bring in another guy for five then maybe the last guy for three and so on and so forth. It would be in "Miracle on Ice" territory if McGregor were to win the fight.

A large contingency of boxing fans are pissed off about this fight even taking place at all. "I'm older", added Mayweather.

The picture showed Malignaggi down on the mat with McGregor still standing.

But in a lengthy discussion of his experience in the Irishman's camp, Malignaggi put everything on the table.

This factor, of course, could play a part.

UFC President Dana White has said he expects McGregor to defend his lightweight belt in the UFC by the end of the year. McGregor, meanwhile, has never boxed professionally in his life. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X. They went on the front line for me and my family and all my loved ones. All of this has been said as a result of the general feeling in the boxing community that McGregor is in way over his head in this contest. But they didn't, and so here we are, breaking the rules on an nearly daily basis as the circled date of August 26 grows nearer. McGregor has no chance.

"At this point I'm waiting for Ashton Kutcher to walk into the dressing rooms and tell me I got Punk'd because I thought it was a joke". That's right, the Ukrainian southpaw reached out to McGregor on Twitter to see if he needed a new sparring partner.

"A fighter like Andre Berto isn't even supposed to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather, but remember, I was 38. I said "there's no breaks here", and started hitting him to the body and he began to whimper", Malignaggi continued.

From there, one of two things will happen.

He said McGregor's biggest asset against Mayweather will be his excellent conditioning.

Custer asked Malignaggi the question on everyone's minds: Can McGregor box?

Generating 850,000 buys is massive in the current UFC climate, and Jones should continue to produce good numbers as a headliner going forward, but as far as the whole "the end of the year is going to be amazing" angle, well, that one is still up for debate. And the training camp would've only gotten worse, so he knew better than to keep me around. It's boxing versus the UFC. "We took a picture in the ring". This fight hasn't received any sort of rest since the whispers first surfaced in 2016, and the talk of this contest likely won't die down until some time after the two finally lock horns in Las Vegas later this month.
