Paulie: ‘Conor trying to fight me in MMA proves what really happened in sparring’

Who you going to believe, Paulie or your lying eyes?

Because after a video was leaked, and after several photos were released showing Conor McGregor getting the better of Paul Malignaggi, the former boxing champion still insists those were forgeries of what really happened during the two sparring sessions in Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor has since challenged Paul Malignaggi to a fight in the UFC, to which Paulie now suggests is proof of what he’s been saying all along.

Conor threw the first stone in this one, stating, “He (Mayweather) did say an MMA fight. So if he wants to, let’s f**king do it. I know he’s not going to. Not a hope in hell.Paulie on the other hand, he’s talking enough s**t. I know he’s stuck for some money. I know he’s looking for a fight. He talking about balls (and saying) ‘bring your balls’, do this and do that. Bring your balls for a fight in a real fight.”

Paul Malignaggi is now responding to this challenge, pointing back to his prior comments about what really happened when the two fighters sparred.

“I think, at the end of the day, if you use your brain, that (offering an MMA fight) also exposes him for what really happened in sparring. Because let’s face it, in boxing, you’re going to keep more money,” Malignaggi told Starsport.

“You have the Ali Act in the United States that’s going to force you to keep the lion share of the money you make in a fight. While in MMA, it’s a relatively new sport in the US, they do not have the Ali Act in place here in the United States. So you’re not going to keep the majority of your money.

“So boxing, automatically, will make him more money and will gross him more money. Then it will also him net him more because he’ll take a percentage of that money. Now if you make a nice gross in a boxing match, you can net a higher percentage of that money.
