Paulie Malignaggi dishes on fallout with Conor McGregor, ‘one of the biggest dirtbags I’ve ever met’

Paulie Malignaggi insists he joined Conor McGregor’s training camp simply to help prepare him for his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, and the only reason things went south is because of how he was mistreated.

In an extensive interview on “The MMA Hour,” Malignaggi didn’t hold back on everything that bothered him about his McGregor camp experience – ranging from blatant disrespect to his portrayal on social media.

“It’s something that I didn’t really ask for,” Malignaggi said. “I showed up with the best intentions in camp. At a certain point you start to realize your being used as a pawn where somebody is trying to get ahead at your expense and not through your help. My intention was to try to get Conor ahead through my help in camp. … I realized pretty early it was always going to be at my expense.”

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Mayweather (49-0 boxing) face off on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a pay-per-view event expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time. Malignaggi’s time with the UFC lightweight champion included two sparring sessions.
