Boxing star Paulie Malignaggi appears to have officially joined the training camp of UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.
Malignaggi was brought in to help McGregor prepare for his professional boxing debut.
Next month, McGregor will fight boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather in Las Vegas.
On Friday, McGregor shared a picture of himself sparring with Malignaggi and he didn’t seem phased by competing against one of boxing’s best.
In the photo, which can be seen below, McGregor has both hands behind his back while he’s boxing Malignaggi.
McGregor has used this technique in his MMA fights. Most notably in his last fight when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC lightweight champion.
Despite not having any professional boxing experience, McGregor is one of the best MMA fighters in the world. He has used his knockout power to win two UFC championships.
Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
