Malignaggi took to Twitter to continue to dispute the claim that McGregor, who will box the 49-0 Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas, knocked him down.

Fans can finally have a look at the now infamous Conor McGregor-Paulie Malignaggi sparring sessions.

After the photo was posted, Malignaggi said that he "came to help this camp out, not to be exploited", and he quit as McGregor's sparring partner shortly after.

During his workout, UFC president Dana White tweeted out video footage of McGregor's sparring session with former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi.

"Today I'm happy to announce that I'm partnering up with Betsafe", McGregor said.

The tune - There's Only One Conor McGregor - recounts McGregor's rise from claiming social welfare to becoming a UFC double-champ. The sparring partners that were in the house with him were anxious that night, saying he's incoherent, he's stumbling.

In the first video, McGregor is seen getting the better of the 36-year-old including landing a pretty hard left-handed punch straight to his face.

McGregor maintains that he "whooped" Malignaggi during the sessions, according to ESPN. The sparring partners were actually telling us when he was dropped back at the home that he was stumbling out of the vehicle after the 12-rounder.

"He was knocked down, the ropes kept him up multiple times, he was badly concussed".

But whatever happens at T-Mobile Arena, McGregor said he doesn't think this will be his last time in the ring. The spars were not good for him.

"I know I'm going to see a fighter, a warrior", Mayweather said.

The third installment of the SHOWTIME Sports series ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs. McGregor, will premiere this Friday on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

'This is a fight I have wanted ever since Badou Jack moved to light heavyweight and I'm delighted to fight in Vegas on an event like this, ' said Cleverly.

"Like I said, if I was to label him as any animal then it would be a rat or a weasel", said McGregor through gritted teeth. Let him watch, let him try and study, but you can not prepare for this.
