After leaving Conor McGregor’s training camp last week, former champion boxer Paulie Malignaggi has been offering some insight into his time with “Notorious.” Malignaggi quit his sparring partner role on McGregor’s team when a series of photos from a sparring session was released to the media. The former champion boxer noted that the images — which saw him laying on the ground — were released without context to make McGregor look good.
In a recent interview, when asked about his interaction with the UFC champion, Malignaggi stated, “This guy is one of the biggest dirtbags I’ve ever met in my life — bar none. I was amazed at what a dirtbag this person is. I don’t care if we never speak again. My life is fine if I never see Conor McGregor again.” Malignaggi also went on to note that McGregor treated his training partners poorly with less than desirable accommodations. No response from McGregor’s team just yet, but stay tuned for more details when they become available.
