Conor Mcgregor Sparring Malignaggi Goes out of Control and has to be Broken-Up

Conor McGregor Sparring Paulie Malignaggi Footage

News has surfaced that Ireland’s Conor McGregor and his sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi. Got a little bit out of control during their most recent session. McGregor is using the skills and knowledge of Paulie as he prepares to take on Floyd Mayweather August 26th.

We can take this news any number of ways. Was Conor getting frustrated with Paulie for not being able to land a shot? Or was Paulie doing something, in particular, that got under his skin? Was Conor trying to rough Malignaggi up like he perhaps intends to do to Floyd and Paulie wasn’t having it?

Either way referee Joe Cortez was in situ and was forced to step in between the two and separate them. Warning that the would-be taking points off both men. It’s a great idea having a high-level ref actually in the camp. So that Conor gets a real-world feel for what he can and cannot do.

Come fight night the referee in question will be looking for anything which might be deemed illegal from the UFC champion. So to ensure that boxings legacy stays intact. It will be Mayweather’s World and the rough and tumble of Mixed Martial Arts has no place there.
