Watch Conor McGregor vs. Paulie Malignaggi Sparring

Welsh star will defend WBA title on undercard of Mc Gregor vs. Mayweather

Based on what's being said on social media and doing the rounds online, you'd assume that the UFC's Conor McGregor is preparing for a fight against Paulie Malignaggi.

LAS VEGAS - According to Conor McGregor, former world champion boxer Paulie Malignaggi quit as one of his primary sparring partners because he was getting "whupped" during sessions. He was certainly badly concussed.

MMA star Conor McGregor so enjoyed a song penned about his upcoming bout with Floyd Mayweather that he's arranged to fly the Kildare songwriter behind it out to his upcoming Vegas fight. They were ringing us, anxious about him stumbling out of the vehicle, incoherent.

"I've put up 2 slowmo replays I can't show more than that", Malignaggi tweeted. We were anxious about him. "And then the train just kind of rolls with it and it keeps picking up steam as the predictions keep coming true", he said.

The "knock down" photo that sparked Malignaggi's rants and exit from McGregor's camp was finally shown, and it definitely doesn't look like the "push" Malignaggi claimed it to be.

Coming into the media frenzy event on August 26th both men have exchanged plenty of verbal slights at one another in the build-up - with Mayweather alleging McGregor made racial slurs on their recent worldwide press tour.

"I don't know what happened".

Malignaggi demanded McGregor's camp release video of the session, and UFC boss White has now answered the request.

The session is McGregor's first open media availability since the infamous four city press tour, in which he and Mayweather verbally clashed at every stop.

He said: "I mean, he's that guy that's at the end of his career, I get the feeling he feels the boxing game has betrayed him".

McGregor, 29, said it was "sad the way it ended", but that it probably wasn't going to end any other way.

"So I released one picture with me whooping his ass with both hands behind my back", McGregor said.
