Paulie Malignaggi isn’t done revealing details from his infamous sparring session against Conor McGregor that eventually lead him to leave the training camp. On Monday the now retired professional boxer was a guest on The MMA Hour-show and gave more interesting information about what exactly.
“After seven (rounds), which was one of his worst rounds, he sits there and he tells me, ‘7-0 to me’. I remember walking back to my corner and yelling back at him, I said, ‘whatever school you went to they didn’t teach you how to count!’ I was feeling so good that I start yelling at Dana White ringside. I started saying, This is the bitch you brought me here?’ I said, ‘24 hours ago I was on a flight’. Then I lied a bit, I said, ‘Last week I didn’t do anything’ — I did workout that week, but of course I wanted to pump myself up,” said Malignaggi.
He then brought up the issue of the famous ‘push down’ incident that was photographed and then later released online.
