Paulie Malignaggi Responds To Recent Conor McGregor Tweets

Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor recently sent out a plethora of photos on Twitter showing him sparring with rival Paulie Malignaggi.

Malignaggi has seen what McGregor did and Malignaggi believes McGregor did it out of fear.

“I moreso laugh at Conor,” Malignaggi said to MMA Junkie Radio. “I’m not really worried about Conor, because Conor is not going to do anything to me. He’s not going to challenge me. There’s fear in his eyes. He’s scared of losing, of being emasculated the way he’s been lately.”

The rivalry between McGregor and Malignaggi started after McGregor posted photos of him allegedly dropping the retired boxer during a sparring session in the lead up to The Money Fight.

One thing that Malignaggi noticed while looking at the pictures is that McGregor didn’t land a clean shot on him.

“I’m sure he’s very disgruntled that he has to look through 20 still pictures, and more than half of them, he’s not landing a clean shot on me, and that’s all he has,” Malignaggi said. “When he looks through that video, he has to live with the agony of knowing there’s more highlights of me on that video than there is of him, and he has to sift through all my highlights to get to the couple of things he’s done in that sparring.”

A retired Malignaggi recently got into a physical altercation with McGregor’s training partner in Artem Lobov, as the two may meet later this year at a Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship event.
