Following the news that Paulie Malignaggi has signed with Bare Knuckle FC, it hasn’t taken long for the decorated boxer to challenge Conor McGregor to a scrap…
If you followed the lead-up to McGregor’s 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr., then you know all about Malignaggi’s issues with the UFC star. The then, retired boxer was brought in to help McGregor prepare for the bout. But, Malignaggi didn’t care for how McGregor’s camp was portraying their sparring sessions publicly, and things went off the rails.
Well, fast forward to today, and the New York fighter tweeted out this challenge:
Conor the coward @TheNotoriousMMA with 2 minute rounds I’m sure even YOU can’t quit at this! Time to settle it.l @bareknucklefc

Now, we all know the chances of this happening are slim to none. But, it has been reported that if McGregor’s teammate, Artem Lobov wins his April 6th,bare knuckle bout with Jason Knight, he could face Malignaggi next.
