BKFC President David Feldman: “If I Was Going To Bet On It, Conor McGregor Will Be There But Who Knows”
Conor’s friend and sparring partner Artem Lobov returns to the ring this Saturday night (June 22, 2019), where he squares off against the former boxing champion Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi in a bare-knuckle match. The two will meet at BKFC 6 event, which takes place in Tampa, Florida.
But there is one big question – will Conor McGregor show up on the event to support “The Russian Hammer”? BKFC president David Feldman thinks the answer is “yes”. Feldman would even bet the former UFC two-division champion will probably be ringside. (h/t MMAMania)
“They won’t give confirmation yet but if I’m a betting man, I’m betting he’s coming,” BKFC president David Feldman told MMAFighting. “They’re not going to give confirmation and if they are, they’re not going to tell us so we put it out there ‘hey Conor McGregor’s coming to the fight’ and then he’s mobbed.”
“So it’s not going to happen like that but from the conversations I’m having, if I was going to bet on it, he’ll be there but who knows.”
Conor McGregor trained with Paulie Malignaggi while he was preparing for Floyd Mayweather Jr. match. Then the controversial pictures and video were released. It proves McGregor knocked Malignaggi down in a sparring session.
Since then, “The Notorious” and “Magic Man” went many times back and forth on social media. Malignaggi claimed photographic and video evidence didn’t tell the whole tale. Frustrated Paulie later even spat on Conor’s mural.
There is a lot of bad blood between Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi. Do you think Mcgregor will show up at the event?
