White: Malignaggi Had To Leave, He Got His Ass Whooped Bad!

UFC President Dana White has fired back at the recent statements that were made by former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi - regarding the aftermath of a sparring session with Conor McGregor.

Malignaggi was hired by McGregor to help the UFC star prepare for the upcoming showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

By their second sparring session, numerous photos were leaked by McGregor's team members, which created the image that Malignaggi took a bad beating and was knocked down to the mat. Malignaggi quit the camp soon after.


The situation escalated even further last Friday, when White released video clips on social media - which show several angles of Malignaggi going down and a clip of McGregor landing hard punches.

Malignaggi believes White released those videos as a measure of payback for being "punked" in training camp. Malignaggi has never been a big fan of the UFC executive and wanted nothing to do with him in training camp.

The retired boxer says the images and video footage was carefully selected from a 36 minute spar. He claims to have gotten the better of McGregor over the entire course of the sparring and dare his camp to release footage of the entire twelve rounds.

According to White, Malignaggi did the right thing by quitting after the second sparring session, because he took a bad beating for the entire twelve rounds.

“As far as his health goes, he made the right decision to leave that camp,” White said. "I think he made the decision for his health, and I think it was the right decision. And I’m not talking sh*t. What do I care? It makes no difference in my life whatsoever.

“This was a deal between Conor and this boxer and whatever. But I’m just telling you he made the right decision for his health, because it was a 12-round straight ass-whooping. It was as bad an ass-whooping as I’ve ever seen."

[QUOTE=cameltoe;17958531]Course it was Dana. That's why the best footage you could find in 12 rounds was one straight left that made Paulie blink, and a 'knockdown' in which no punches were landed.[/QUOTE]Exactly and it's pitiful to watch too. White is…
