Paulie Malignaggi fuels Conor McGregor feud with UFC return, Floyd Mayweather ‘carry’ remarks

WBN 16/08/2018

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.

Listen to the trio of social media posts here:
