Dana White Releases Footage of Controversial Sparring Match Between Conor McGregor and Paul Malignaggi (VIDEOS)

By now you’ve probably heard about how Paul Malignaggi quit as Conor McGregor‘s sparring partner after he felt that the UFC champ’s PR team were doing anything they could to make their fighter look good at the former boxing champ’s expense.

One of the key issues that set Malignaggi off was a photo released on Twitter by one of McGregor’s photographers, which showed Paulie on the floor while Conor danced around him:


Since leaving Team McGregor, Malignaggi has come out and claimed that he was pushed down by Conor, all while saying that he actually beat the Irishman’s ass and calling him a “dirtbag.”

So, who should we believe in all of this?  Did McGregor really knock Malignaggi down?  Is Conor actually beating up on the retired boxer?  Or is Malignaggi telling the truth?

In order to get some answers, we need to see some footage.  And on Friday, night, UFC president Dana White provided the world with just that when he posted two videos from the McGregor-Malignaggi sparring match on Twitter.

Was it a pushdown?  Or a knockdown?  And does McGregor look like he stands a chance in the ring against Floyd Mayweather?  Watch the videos and decide for yourself: 

One person who is still convinced it was a pushdown is Malignaggi.  He took to Twitter and defended himself with the following tweets:

Something tells me Malignaggi is trying to set himself up as the perfect opponent for McGregor’s future boxing endeavors.

McGregor vs. Malignaggi?  I think I’d watch that.
