Former two-weight boxing champion Paul Malignaggi was recently involved in two hard sparring sessions with current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, this to help prepare the Irish star for his upcoming showdown with Floyd Mayweather.
This much we know.
We also know that Paul Malignaggi claims to have gotten the better of Conor McGregor in the early rounds of their sparring sessions before he admittedly “gassed” in rounds eleven and twelve.
With that said, “Mystic Mac” and his team have a very different account of how Conor’s sparring with “The Magic Man” went down, with the general consensus being that it was a one-sided beating.
UFC President Dana White recently added fuel to the fire on Friday night when he released a video that appears to show Paulie being knocked down by McGregor.
Malignaggi accused the brash UFC boss of editing the sparring footage and is adamant that he was actually pulled down to the canvas.
Today, Dana White responded to Malignaggi, who recently put the UFC boss on blast, and absolutely roasted “The Magic Man”.
