It took a fight with Artem Lobov for Paulie Malignaggi to finally get the attention of Conor McGregor, but it was probably not the reaction he was looking for.
Yesterday, shortly after the release of a video of the Malignaggi event on Lobov in a promotional event of the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), McGregor tweeted photos of his highly debated training session with Malignaggi in 2017.
All the images show Malignaggi at the receiving end of some strong hits, with "The Notorious" bringing out the best of the exchanges.
The last time another fighter faced SBG Ireland's partner, Lobov, McGregor flew from Dublin to New York and threw a dolly through the window of a bus to send a message to Khabib Nurmagomedov. This time, however, it seems that "The Notorious" is having fun with the situation.
Lobov, a former UFC fighter, will make his BKFC debut against Jason Knight on Saturday, April 6. If you win, you are expected to & # 39; The Russian Hammer & # 39; fight with Malignaggi, who signed with the knuckle fight promotion earlier this year. .
