‘Conor McGregor is the ‘piñata of combat sports’

Retired former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi momentarily participated in Conor McGregor’s training camp ahead of the Ireland native’s 2017 boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Now Malignaggi and McGregor are not on the best of terms.

Speaking to Fight Hype, Malignaggi has now come forward with his thoughts on the former two-division UFC champion.

“He’s been a pretty good punching bag lately. He got the sh-t beat out of him by everybody in sparring in camp – me and Dashon Johnson used to have to go easy on him. I smacked him around and he did everything he could to get me out of the camp. Then he got smacked around by Floyd Mayweather. Then get got smacked around by the authorities when he got arrested because he didn’t want to fight Khabib. Now he’s gonna get smacked around by Khabib.”

“Yo, you’re a f—ng piñata, bro. Think about it. You ever play with a piñata? You just beat the sh-t out of it and you get a nice prize at the end of it. He’s like the piñata of combat sports. Everybody beats the sh-t out of him and then gets a prize too! I love it. You’re a f—ng piñata. Good luck. That’s a nice ass-whooping you’re gonna catch next month.”
