New sparring footage has emerged from Conor McGregor’s gym battle with Paul Malignaggi.

In the above video, which includes audio, we see current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor landing some crisp left hands while sparring “The Magic Man”.

“Mystic Mac” had brought in Malignaggi as a sparring partner earlier this summer to help him prepare for his August boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

After some unflattering footage from their sparring matches was leaked on social media, Malignaggi opted to leave the McGregor camp and voiced his displeasure with the “disrespectful antics” of Conor’s team.

Conor McGregor would go on to suffer a tenth-round TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather in a fight which made both men millions of dollars.

Since that time Malignaggi has issued several challenges to Conor McGregor for a fight in the squared circle.

As expected, it did not take long for “The Magic Man” Paul Malignaggi to respond to the newly released sparring footage.

“The highlights he’s got left R looking weaker N weaker, shame is he still doesn’t have even 20 seconds total footage out of 36 minutes. I will say it again @TheNotoriousMMA u have NO balls. I told u to bring them not realizing u didn’t have any to bring with u 2 begin with lmao!” – Paul Malignaggi
