Dana White releases the clip of Conor McGregor's knockdown of Paulie Malignaggi

Nathan Cleverly to face Badou Jack on Mayweather v McGregor event, August 26 OFFICIAL: Mayweather vs McGregor undercard announced

The Irishman's former sparring partner, Paulie Malignaggi, previously noted that McGregor wasn't fighting using the traditional tactics.

McGregor has a real chance to beat Mayweather in their highly anticipated fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26.

However, the American controversially left McGregor's training camp last week after he said leaked photos showing him sprawled out on the canvas posted on social media painted a false picture of the sessions.

UFC president Dana White has controversially dropped footage of Conor McGregor's sparring session with former IBF Junior Welterweight and WBA Welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi. Malignaggi himself admitted McGregor got the best of him early, but as the later rounds came Malignaggi claims to have been the UFC champ's superior. He was certainly badly concussed.

While many continue to point towards Floyd Mayweather Jr's perceived difficulty with boxing southpaw fighters, the 49-0 legend has a message... Straight after it we were anxious.

Well, UFC president Dana White made a decision to release video footage from the sparring session showing the knockdown as well as a couple of other exchanges between McGregor and Malignaggi from their time in the ring together. We were anxious about him.

So the proverbial gloves are off, and the saga between McGregor and Malignaggi is more heated and dramatic and ever, just when you thought it couldn't get any more of either or those. That would back up Malignaggi's statements that McGregor does hit hard, but that his power was simply "above average".

It looks like this argument will continue at least until McGregor puts all of this behind him to actually step into the ring with Mayweather in two weeks time.

"I don't know what happened".

During a media workout on Thursday, Mayweather, who has said this will unequivocally be his final fight, admitted this is the first time in his career he's felt the need to not only win, but give consumers a show in the process.

White attended a sparring session that took place August 1 at the UFC's Performance Institute in Las Vegas where McGregor has been preparing for Mayweather. With the Van Heerden situation, like maybe he didn't know how the ethics work in boxing, maybe he still had to learn, or now that he has learned, everything will be okay.
