Twitter reacts to that controversial Conor McGregor-Paulie Malignaggi sparring footage

UFC President Dana White released some clips of the much discussed sparring session between Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi late Friday. The footage was certainly favorable toward the UFC lightweight champion.

After Malignaggi left McGregor’s (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) camp for the Aug. 26 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather (49-0 boxing) due to the release of some unflattering sparring photos, the debate about what actually happened in the gym has been a hot topic. Malignaggi insisted that a “push down” occurred, but the McGregor camp claimed it was a knockdown.

After much back-and-forth, White published two clips of McGregor and Malignaggi sparring, and the reaction was telling. Check below to see the top Twitter reactions to the latest chapter in the build to McGregor vs. Mayweather, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
