Video of controversial McGregor sparring session emerges

Now, days after Malignaggi posted a statement on Friday morning explaining that he has made a decision to leave the Irishman's camp after just two sessions, UFC president Dana White has released footage of his sparring session with McGregor. Conor vs Paulie Malignaggi former IBF/WBA World Champion.

Malignaggi quit the McGregor camp after a photograph emerged on social media that implied he had hit the canvas in a session, while the 36-year-old boxer insisted he had been pushed rather than punched.

Clad in a black and gold Versace robe with "McGregor the Notorious" written on the back, Conor McGregor displayed his boxing skills during an open workout at the UFC Headquarters in Las Vegas Friday.

He said: "It's one hell of a song!"

Malignaggi said he accepted the offer with the intention of simply helping McGregor but figured out early on that McGregor's motivation was to make himself look good at Malignaggi's expense.

The rest of this stuff about him having any real advantage: Straight spin zone, baby.

In the first video, Malignaggi can be seen in a defensive stance while McGregor unloads.

Against Mayweather, who sports a flawless 49-0 record and the distinction of being the most unhittable fighter in boxing history, McGregor attempts to do the impossible once again in his first-ever professional boxing match.

McGregor has never boxed professionally so he brought in several sparring partners to help him get ready to take on the undefeated Mayweather, who is considered one of the greatest of all-time. White maintains this shows McGregor in the ascendancy.

"He was knocked down, the ropes kept him up multiple times, he was badly concussed". We thought the worst was about to happen. He'll come out southpaw then go the other way.

"There is no way McGregor can defeat Mayweather", Aldo said.

"We're going to blow past our own record of $72 million; this fight is massive", Ellerbe said.

'This is a fight I have wanted ever since Badou Jack moved to light heavyweight and I'm delighted to fight in Vegas on an event like this, ' said Cleverly. I am coming sprinting at you with bricks. "It's okay. Let it go", a beaming McGregor said.
