Paulie Malignaggi Is Pissed Conor McGregor’s Team Posted Pic Of Him Getting Knocked Down During Sparring

Former boxing champ Paulie Malignaggi is not happy with Conor McGregor’s team for posting a potentially misleading pic of their sparring session today on social media.

Gerry Byrne, a close friend of McGregor’s, uploaded this pic to his Instagram page that shows Malignaggi knocked down to the ground with the caption “that OMG power” which references an interview the boxer gave Jim Rome earlier in the week where he said that he didn’t feel McGregor “had that OMG power”.

Malignaggi saw the pic and immediately fired off a series of tweets claiming that he was pushed down and not knocked down by McGregor.

The picture was still up on Byrne’s page an hour after Malignaggi’s tweets and no one on McGregor’s team has yet to comment on it.
