It didn’t take longer that Paulie Malignaggi responded back and rallies against former UFC champion:
Dude has had 2 kids and an ass kicking since this and he still lives off a fake knockdown that he knows wasn’t real lol. @TheNotoriousMMA your feelings are still hurt? Dont get ur feelings hurt u lil bitch its still our lil secret. Dont run for your life when they ring the bell
@TheNotoriousMMA dont let the inner bitch in u come out. We all know ur gonna pull out the Khabib fight last minute or spend the whole fight runnin 4ur life like u did in rd 5 of the Diaz rematch. U have No BALLS and u think of me 1 yr on cause the reality of my words burns u
1 yr passed and you saw 5 seconds of video in 36 minutes yet he cant stop talkin about me. Come on you gotta be smart enough at this point than to think he boxes anything but apples or oranges
Me n Cotto went 12 in a very good world title fight. Conor is way better than Cotto?
Ok, MMA fan around the work lets just hopes this old feud may stick to social media and it may not trigger the talk of a fight between two. Mcgregor is currently slated to challenge Khabib Nurmgaomedov for a lightweight title at UFC 229 on October 6 from Las Vegas.
