If Conor McGregor's imminent boxing debut isn't already enough of a circus, then Paulie Malignaggi is certainly adding to the drama.

The American was originally in McGregor's corner and had been working with him as a sparring partner in the gym.

He's since quit the Notorious' camp following social media pictures of him on the canvas looking dishevelled.

McGregor's critics aren't giving him a chance against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather.

With that in mind, the Irishman is desperate to prove he has what it takes in the ring as well as the octagon - hence why he wanted to show himself allegedly giving Malignaggi, an actual boxer albeit a retired one, a beating.

Was it a set-up, or did he really get the better of him? It's very difficult to tell, as only those who were there for the two sparring sessions know the truth.

Malignaggi has given his version of events, insisting he was only knocked down because he was pushed.

Dana White's video

And thanks to UFC president Dana White, fans have now been given a chance to judge for themselves.

It looks as if he takes a left hook to the face. However, one Twitter user has decided to pinpoint the moment the welterweight falls by slowing the footage down.

It's still not definitive, and the McGregor 'groupies' as Malignaggi calls them will no doubt have a response.

Yet, for the man himself, this is enough to silence the debate on whether McGregor actually knocked him down. Here's what he had to say:

Ultimately, all that matters is how he fares on August 26 in Las Vegas, as that will be the only way to judge whether he's made the right decision to enter the sport.
