Paulie Malignaggi Slams McGregor, Says Lobov Will Get Permanently Hurt
The beef between Paulie Malignaggi and Conor McGregor continues. This time, Malignaggi throws harsh words to McGregor.
Artem Lobov made his Bare Knuckle FC debut against Jason Knight. However, when Paulie Malignaggi signed to BKFC, fans were clamoring for a bout between the two. This is due to the rivalry between Malignaggi, and Lobov’s friend and training partner McGregor.
Artem Lobov and Paulie Malignaggi got into a physical altercation in the lead-up to the Knight fight. However, following Lobov’s victory, Paulie was silent. He finally broke this silence, and gave his thoughts to Helen Yee. Boy, did he take the gloves off (pun intended).
“It was a pitiful, pitiful display. It was exciting, but it was a pitiful display of combat sports ability and skills.”
Malignaggi would go on to discuss his continuing rivalry with McGregor. He mentioned the sparring photos that McGregor posted, following the altercation between Paulie and Artem. Paulie believes that this is just another sign that McGregor got beat up.
“This p—y wishes he had a full video that he could release right now. If he had a full video of kicking my ass, right now is the moment he would release it.”
Paulie would then say that beating Artem would make Conor want to fight.
“Once I put his boy in a coma, he’s gonna want to fight me. If he’s any kind of man, he would. So once I do that in June, he will want to fight me.”
Malignaggi would add the caveat that he would only take the bout, if the full sparring video was released.
Currently no bout has been formally announced between Paulie Malignaggi and Artem Lobov, however the plan is for the bout to take place in June.
