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.

“The funny thing about the push down was this — it was during one of his worst moments. He pushed me down on the floor to try and catch a break and the instant I went down I got back up. I remember when I was down I continued to trash talk. I said, ‘Buddy, you need a break?’ because Cortez had to wipe off my gloves. I started to take it to him right after that. I told him, ‘you don’t get no breaks here’, and I started to hit him with more body shots. I said, ‘take those, they don’t feel good’ and I could hear him whimper off the body shots, too,” he revealed.
