Malignaggi To McGregor: Bare-Knuckle or Boxing - Winner Takes All!

Former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi is still eager to get his hands on UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

The two have been feuding since 2017, when McGregor hired Malignaggi as a sparring partner. McGregor was making his pro boxing debut, against Floyd Mayweather in August of that year.

The tension first began when McGregor and his team released select photos and video clips from the Malignaggi sparring sessions. McGregor released a clip where he claimed to have cleanly dropped Malignaggi.

Malignaggi is willing to settle their long-standing dispute in the ring.

Both tasted defeat in their most recent outings.

Earlier this year, Malignaggi made his bare-knuckle boxing debut and lost a close decision to Artem Lubov, who is close friends with McGregor. And McGregor has been out of action since getting choked out by Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.

“The thing that bothers Conor about me more than anything is the fact I pulled his card before everybody else realised it. The whole having no guts and being a quitter. Nobody knew that and in the past few years all he’s done is prove me right. I think he knew subliminally that I was always right about him and I think he didn’t like it," Malignaggi told Talk Sport.

"I’d fight him winner takes all, I’ve said that for years. Whoever loses doesn’t get a penny, I’d be all for that. In the Octagon he beats me, come on. We can do it bare-knuckle, we can do it boxing.

"He’s a massive flop in general, he’s a better salesman than he is a fighter. Has he ever defended a title in the UFC? What has he done. He’s shot at 31 years old. At 31 years old I won my second world championship. You can’t tell me the guy’s shot at 31 years old? Come on.”

Paulie is absolutely desperate for Conor to break him off some bread. Man, this is sad.
