Conor McGregor’s former sparring partner claims the UFC champ ‘whimpers like a girl’ when he takes body blows in the boxing ring.
Paulie Malignaggi has attacked McGregor after quitting his training crew over a series of photographs he alleges were set up to make it look as though the Irish athlete had sent him to the canvas.
Conor McGregor’s personal photographer shared the offending ‘unadulterated’ image on Twitter:
There no conspiracy, there no photoshop just pure unadulterated power pic.twitter.com/sqQoc3zgrn

The American has responded to the photographs in a string of tweets that claim title-winning McGregor is not well prepared to take on Floyd Mayweather.

After being questioned over the incident by fans, Malignaggi said:
This coming week I’ll actually start to discuss a bit what happened Tuesday, he whimpers like a girl when he gets ripped to the body.
When I look back at the experience as a whole, not just sparring but as a whole, yes there was definitely an agenda beyond a shadow of a doubt.
I won’t speak tactics of his, that I wouldn’t do, I still have some ethics, I’m not Conor, but definitely will give the story straight about stuff.
Despite the trash talk, Malignaggi says he wishes Camp McGregor the best and still has respect for The Notorious.
It seems all the hype from McGregor – the showboating and the PR bolstering – is not making him any friends in the boxing ring pre-fight.
