Watch: Footage Finally Released Of Conor McGregor’s Knockdown Of Paulie Malignaggi

It’s only two weeks to go until Conor McGregor’s much-anticipated showdown with Floyd Mayweather. However, while there has been a justified amount of hype ahead of the fight, perhaps it has been overshadowed by the war of words between the Irishman and Paulie Malignaggi, who sparred with the Notorious One on two occasions.

Indeed, it was a picture of an apparent knockdown posted to social media that proved to be the final straw for Malignaggi, who contended that McGregor had merely pushed him to the canvas and it did not fairly represent the situation.

However, Dana White has released footage of the knockdown, and it appears to be conclusive.

The general consensus is that this was a clean knockdown, and McGregor has been vindicated.

Nonetheless, Malignaggi is still sticking to his guns.

He then took aim directly at Dana White for releasing the footage.

This was not the only footage released, as White also tweeted another clip of McGregor landing his famous left hand on the former world champion boxer.

“For all the people who think @TheNotoriousMMA can’t box. This is gonna be a FIGHT! Conor vs Paulie Malignaggi former IBF/WBA World Champion.”

Roll on August 26!
