Conor McGregor Knocks Down Sparring Partner Paulie Malignaggi

13 August 2017

UFC lightweight champion McGregor is due to face the 40-year old Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0, on 26 August in a 12-round super welterweight boxing bout.

McGregor spoke about a range of topics - including Paulie Malignaggi, the fan who wrote him a "catchy" tribute song, and his plans to derail Mayweather - but he also touched on his plans for later this year.

Conor McGregor plans to continue fighting in both mixed martial arts and boxing once he's finished with Floyd Mayweather.

Now, days after Malignaggi posted a statement on Friday morning explaining that he has made a decision to leave the Irishman's camp after just two sessions, UFC president Dana White has released footage of his sparring session with McGregor.

Why Disney's latest stream dream should have Netflix anxious
Disney's cable networks, such as ESPN , make up the majority of the company's earnings. One of the biggest draws of Netflix content was its suite of Disney films.

Thoughts on the footage of McGregor and Malignaggi?

"I'm going to bring him in as a thank you for the support". Tell me how his temple looked. We were anxious about him. He was badly, badly concussed after those rounds.

"He knows, he knows there is no racism from me". I'm impressed. You gotta respect the guy.

McGregor has never boxed professionally so he brought in several sparring partners to help him get ready to take on the undefeated Mayweather, who is considered one of the greatest of all-time. It didn't go well for him. The other video sees McGregor connect with a series of stiff punches that ends with Malignaggi getting backed up against the ropes after eating a barrage of shots.

Scores of police, ambulance and fire crew could be seen working at the scene, with debris strewn across the road. In an earlier public post, she said there must be a God as "How the hell can anyone survive that explosion?".

"Here is the video everyone wanted to see", UFC President Dana White said on Instagram, posting a brief clip of a sparring session between the two fighters.

One seller on the Vivid Seats website has listed a pair of ringside seats for the contest at a staggering $164,043 each, but Papp says that prices in secondary markets are likely to come down closer to the event.

"In my opinion, this was the best thing for him", McGregor said.
