By FCF Staff
Conor McGregor is set to fight Floyd Mayweather on Saturday, but his rivalry with Paulie Malignaggi continues to make headlines.
As the UFC’s lightweight champ arrived at a media event in Las Vegas, McGregor got into a verbal confrontation with Malignaggi, as cameras documented the exchange. A video clip of the incident is posted below.
Malignaggi was brought in to help McGregor prepare for the August 26th bout, but the retired boxer left the training camp, after he accused the Irish star’s team of misrepresenting how the sparring sessions went.
