Paulie Malignaggi fuels Conor McGregor feud with UFC return, Floyd Mayweather ‘carry’ remarks
Paulie Malignaggi spoke about Conor McGregor on Sirius XM Radio recently and it’s pretty clear the pair are nowhere near forming a friendship again.
The ‘Magic Man’ sparred McGregor prior to the Irishman’s cross-code bout with Floyd Mayweather in August 2017 and subsequently fell out with the two-weight UFC title holder.
As McGregor prepares to return to MMA later this year in a long-awaited clash with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Malignaggi couldn’t resist having several digs at the ‘Notorious’ one.
In three clips below, Malignaggi talked about Khabib, McGregor holding a grudge and made further claims surrounding rumors Mayweather carried him throughout their contest.
