Conor McGregor Roasts Paulie Malignaggi After Artem Lobov Incident, Paulie Fires Back!

Conor McGregor Roasts Paulie Malignaggi After Artem Lobov Incident, Paulie Fires Back!

Because once I beat the shit out of you after all the past we've had and all the lies you've told, you're done, you're history.

"It was disrespectful to me and I kind of reacted", said Malignaggi.

On Tuesday, the pair came face-to-face and Malignaggi slapped Lobov at Mendez Boxing in NY. "If I could get one of his guys - because to me, it's not just Conor responsible for that mayhem and that false bravado; to me, it was the whole team - I'm fine with that".

This scuffle began with some face-to-face trash talk, and reached a climax when Malignaggi slapped Lobov and the pair had to be separated. Lobov, he said, stayed in a nicer house with McGregor and other coaches, while he and other sparring partners were in "a lower level house, to put it mildly".

But this time, "The Notorious" chose a different strategy and trolled Paulie Malignaggi on social media, sharing photos from their sparring sessions in 2017 before his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Other than that, he only watched the Russian UFC veteran work in the ring.

At least two members of the crowd were critically injured and one injury was reportedly from a vehicle hitting a pedestrian. Police say three male adults were standing in front of a business in a strip mall in the 3400 block of West Slauson Blvd.


Malignaggi said after his infamous training camp with McGregor that he had no regrets about taking on the job, despite referring to the Irishman as a "scumbag". "I didn't go to his face with the intention of anything happening, I wouldn't want to risk his fight on Saturday". "I didn't think Conor was that good, but (Lobov) was really bad. If Artem is anything like I saw two years ago, any punch could potentially land on him".

On Saturday, Lobov will make his official BKFC debut against fellow ex-UFC vet Jason Knight in Biloxi, Miss.

The two men were at a Bare Knuckle Fight Club promotion in MS when their fiery war of words turned took a nasty turn and Malignaggi slapped Lobov in the face, before calling him a "b***".

Money is the ultimate reason that brought Malignaggi out of retirement. But now that he is pot committed, he's resolved to make a statement. Otherwise, it's not a win for me. Don't get in my face and make threats here, because I'll f-k you up here.
