Conor McGregor, Paulie Malignaggi go at it again on social media

Not this again.

This time last year, UFC star Conor McGregor released sparring footage of a session with former two-weight boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi, who was sent in to help the Irishman prepare for Floyd Mayweather Jr.

That footage, which appeared to show McGregor flooring Malignaggi, soon went viral and the two fighters went back-and-forth on social media, and in person, for what seemed like months.

Well, they’re back at it again, as McGregor was keen to remind Malignaggi of their controversial sparring session on social media.

McGregor’s tweet sent Malignaggi into one of his usual frenzies, as the 37-year-old was quick to respond to ‘The Notorious’, and his fans, in several follow-up tweets.

Check them out below.

Let’s just hope, for the sake of combat sports fans worldwide, that this latest round of trash talk doesn’t resurrect any talks of a possible fight between the two rivals. McGregor, 30, is expected to challenge the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title at UFC 229. The highly anticipated pay-per-view takes place on Oct. 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
