Conor McGregor: Sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi quit due to getting 'whupped'

The former boxer labelled McGregor a "scumbag" after quitting his training camp over the incident, ahead of the Irishman's much-hyped bout against Floyd Mayweather Jnr on August 26.

As reported late Friday night, UFC president Dana White released the video of the sparring match between Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi and you will be hard-pressed to find any push in it.

The tune - There's Only One Conor McGregor - recounts McGregor's rise from claiming social welfare to becoming a UFC double-champ. He was certainly badly concussed. In the video, McGregor appears to land a left hand shortly before Malignaggi goes down.

"When you look at myself and Conor McGregor on paper, he's taller, has a longer reach, he's a bigger man from top to bottom". The sparring partners that were in the house with him were anxious that night, saying he's incoherent, he's stumbling.

When asked during a media scrum if he agrees McGregor, who has never boxed professionally before, will "win" in some ways if he's able to last 12 rounds with the all-time great, Mayweather quickly agreed.

Malignaggi soon took to Twitter to explain his side of the story, stating that if the full 36 minute footage was released, it would show McGregor losing this sparring session. We were anxious about him. One, by McGregor's personal photographer David Fogarty, showed Malignaggi on the canvas near the ropes with the UFC lightweight champion looking over him.

"Everybody already knew what happened with Van Heerden, now he's doing the same with me too". What better way for a guy like him to exit under a load of questions.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime, bucket-list event, so the die-hard Mayweather and McGregor fans are usually going to find their way to the event".

McGregor, 29, said it was "sad the way it ended", but that it probably wasn't going to end any other way.

Conor didn't confirm whether Mick was going to play him out to the ring, but said, "I'm going to bring him in as a thank you for the support".
