Conor McGregor has rekindled an old rivalry with boxer Paulie Malignaggi after reminding his millions of fans on social media about an infamous sparring session between the two in which ‘The Magic Man’ came off second best.
“Time flies when you are on your ass,” McGregor wrote in response to a post on the MMA History Today Twitter page that stated it’s been a year since video of McGregor dropping Malignaggi in the gym was released.
Needless to say the taunt was like a red rag to a bull as far as Malignaggi was concerned and he was soon firing back at ‘The Notorious.’
“Dude has had 2 kids and an ass kicking since this and he still lives off a fake knockdown that he knows wasn’t real lol,” Malignaggi responded. “@TheNotoriousMMA your feelings are still hurt? Dont get ur feelings hurt u lil bitch its still our lil secret. Dont run for your life when they ring the bell.
“@TheNotoriousMMA dont let the inner bitch in u come out. We all know ur gonna pull out the Khabib fight last minute or spend the whole fight runnin 4ur life like u did in rd 5 of the Diaz rematch. U have No BALLS and u think of me 1 yr on cause the reality of my words burns u.
“1 yr passed and you saw 5 seconds of video in 36 minutes yet he cant stop talkin about me. Come on you gotta be smart enough at this point than to think he boxes anything but apples or oranges.
“Me n Cotto went 12 in a very good world title fight. Conor is way better than Cotto?”
