Dana White and the UFC released 22 seconds of footage late Friday night that shows Conor McGregor, for the most part, dominating Paulie Malignaggi during their second sparring session.

The video shows McGregor landing some good, clean, hard shots and also a knockdown – or is it a pushdown?

The two sparring sessions have been a point of contention for Malignaggi, resulting in his abrupt departure from McGregor’s training camp. The retired two-time boxing champion has been vocal about how he’s been misrepresented by McGregor on social media in attempt to make himself look good ahead of his boxing showdown with Floyd Mayweather.

Did that continue with this hand-picked video footage that only shows a snippet of 20 rounds total the two men sparred?

As you would expect, Malignaggi’s answer is yes, and he backed it up with a lengthy series of tweets.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Mayweather (49-0 boxing) face off on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a pay-per-view event
expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time.
