McGregor was stopped in the 10th round by Floyd Mayweather. Paulie Malignaggi was one of McGregor‘s sparring partners during his boxing camp. The relationship between the two soon went south because of sparring footage which was leaked. The footage saw McGregor knock down Malignaggi, but the latter claims it was a push.
Since then Malignaggi has been making some noise, calling out McGregor and then claiming he could take out a whole UFC division. This got the backs up of many MMA fans. The main one being UFC commentator Joe Rogan. On the JRE Fight Companion podcast, Rogan had this to say: “He should shut the f**k up because if he wanted to have a UFC fight he can go over there and get his brain kicked in,” Rogan continued. “He’s out of his mind. Stop talking. You’re a boxer. You’re a very good boxer. Just shut your mouth.”
“They will give you a wrestler and he will punch your f**king face into pulp”
That wasn’t the end of his rant though, Rogan carried on stating: “There’s literally a million people in the world that could grab you and strangle the life out of you and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Sorry dude. Don’t talk s**t. They will give you a wrestler and he will punch your f**king face into pulp and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Not a god-damn thing.”
