Fair play: McGregor demands worldwide judge for Mayweather fight

"Conor vs Paulie Malignaggi former IBF/WBA World Champion", White said in one of the tweets.

McGregor is set to box Floyd Mayweather on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Malignaggi scoffed at McGregor's comments, taking to social media to defend his earlier comments that he walked out because McGregor was using him as a pawn to try and give credibility to a "house of cards" training camp.

Dana White posted several video clips of the controversial sparring session between Conor McGregor and former WBA and IBF champion Paulie Malignaggi on his Instagram page late Friday night. Malignaggi himself admitted McGregor got the best of him early, but as the later rounds came Malignaggi claims to have been the UFC champ's superior. My weight is at a good place but Im going to be a much bigger man than Floyd when I we step in the ring for the fight and I think that makes a difference.

"He was flattened against the ropes; multiple times the ropes kept him on his feet".

It certainly looks like McGregor landed a quick knockdown from a short uppercut that dropped Malignaggi to the mat in one of the videos.

The other video posted by White, shows McGregor clearly landing a series of punches against Malignaggi, including a head-rocking left. They were ringing us, anxious about him stumbling out of the auto, incoherent.

During his incredible UFC career, which has seen him gain global fame and become the face of the organisation, McGregor has used 4oz gloves, therefore, it will not be a shock that he welcomes anything that could give him a slight edge over Mayweather.

"Sparring partners who were [staying] in the house with him were anxious about him".

"I don't know what happened". What better way for a guy like him to exit under a load of questions.

"My confidence comes from my work ethic", McGregor said.

Fight preparation is now in full swing as he held his open media workout and promised he'd knock Floyd Mayweather out in "2 rounds". That would back up Malignaggi's statements that McGregor does hit hard, but that his power was simply "above average".
