Former professional boxer and Conor McGregor’s ex-sparring partner, Paul Malignaggi has continued his verbal assault on McGregor calling him “one of the biggest dirtbags” he’s ever met.

Malignaggi spoke out on an episode of The MMA Hour where he continued to insult McGregor after previously resigning over leaked photos from one of their sparring matches.

“This guy is one of the biggest dirtbags I’ve ever met in my life, bar none,” said Malignaggi. “I was amazed at what a dirtbag this person is. I don’t care if we never speak again. My life is fine if I never see Conor McGregor again.”

It didn’t end there though. Malignaggi also insulted McGregor’s entire camp and accused them of being amateurs and also said McGregor only likes to feel like he’s in the favourable position.

“He doesn’t want to be put in those positions. He wants to be the front runner,” Malignaggi said. “He wants to be the guy who always has the advantage, because when he has an advantage he’s a big man. When he gets tired, he wants out of a fight.”

Malignaggi may be right but we’ll find out for sure when McGregor enters the ring with Floyd Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena, 26 August.
