Expressing his views Paulie tweeted,” #noba*** #quitter @TheNotoriousMMA”
Paulie Malignaggi misses no chance of showing hate towards Conor McGregor.
In an interview with Fight Hype, Malignaggi said, “ I watched it. I was at a party. I did see the McGregor fight with Khabib,”
“It’s what I’ve been saying. This guy’s got no balls, he’s got no character and he showed it in the fight again.”
Paulie also said that Conor McGregor is the most overhyped fighter in combat sports history.
Paulie added, ”He got two ass whoopings, he got his ass kicked by Khabib and then Khabib’s posse came in and f***ed him up a little more.”
