UFC commentator Joe Rogan tells Paulie Malignaggi to stop hating on MMA fighters.
Paulie Malignaggi hasn’t just fallen out with Conor McGregor; he’s got a problem with the entire MMA world.
Malignaggi, a former two-weight boxing world champion, antagonized McGregor in the lead-up to the Floyd Mayweather fight and the 36-year-old has been barking for a boxing match with ‘The Notorious’ ever since photos were released of their sparring session at the UFC performance institute last month.
But ‘Magic Man’ also recently went back-and-forth with UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway on Twitter, telling ‘Blessed’ that MMA fighters are ‘trolls’.
Paulina please shut your mouth. I’ll show you something bout body work. https://t.co/JQzKMNFYG0

Longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan told Malignaggi to ‘shut the f**k up’ because he’d get beaten to a pulp against any competent MMA fighter.
“He should shut the f**k up because if he wanted to have a UFC fight he can go over there and get his brain kicked in,” Rogan said on his podcast, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ (h/t Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “He’s out of his mind. Stop talking. You’re a boxer. You’re a very good boxer. Just shut your mouth.
“There’s literally a million people in the world that could grab you and strangle the life out of you and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Sorry dude. Don’t talk s**t. They will give you a wrestler and he will punch your f**king face into pulp and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Not a god-damn thing.”
Rogan told guest Brendan Schaub that Malignaggi would get killed by Holloway in the Octagon.
“Imagine what Max Holloway would do to Paulie Malignaggi in an MMA fight,” he said. Just imagine it. Just try to wrap your head around the kind of a**-f**king he would receive. Max Holloway would literally kill him if he wanted to. Literally kill him.”
But, Rogan at least acknowledged that Malignaggi would ‘probably f**ck CM Punk up’. Punk, who lost in his mixed martial arts debut last year, is rumored to return to the UFC in the coming months.
