Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor and former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi have not been on the best of terms as of late. With that in mind, it would appear that “Notorious” has decided to open back up with some new trash-talk for the retired pugilist.
Conor McGregor made his big boxing debut back in 2017. “Notorious” went toe-to-toe with undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr.
In preparation for the bout, the Ireland native recruited the assistance of a few boxing notables. Among them, McGregor had Paulie Malignaggi flown in for a few sparring sessions.
A video of the two sparring quickly went viral, as Conor McGregor also released photos of himself seemingly dropping the veteran boxer in practice. Ever since then, Malignaggi and McGregor have been in less than ideal relations.
Well, it has been one year to the day since UFC President Dana White leaked the sparring footage. In remembrance of the incident, Conor McGregor has now decided to throw some new heat at Paulie Malignaggi. Check it out below.
