The UFC president has released footage of the infamous second spar between Dublin debutant Conor McGregor and former two-weight champ Paulie Malignaggi.
Malignaggi left the McGregor’s camp for the Floyd Mayweather August 26th fight after, among other things, compromising photos of him on the canvas were published by the Notorious camp.
‘The Magic Man’ claims his trip to the floor was the result of a pushdown – but the footage seems to suggest differently, although it is relatively poor quality.
The UFC boss released three clips – two different angles of the knockdown as well as another snippet showing McGregor having success.
Watch the McGregor v Malignaggi sparring footage below:
Theres an awful lot to say about this 25 seconds. An awful lot. BUT it wasn’t no push. Yes Pauline’s ass was hanging out but he got clipped. pic.twitter.com/ZUl6ypSpLB

Admittedly the footage is just 20 seconds of a 2160 second spar, however it help cut through a lot of the talk over the past two weeks.
