Former two-weight world champion boxer Paulie Malignaggi showed exactly what he thinks of UFC star Conor McGregor, spitting on a mural of the Irishman in LA.
The video shared with Malignaggi’s 135,000 followers was captioned: “F*ck the other side,” with McGregor and his training partner and friend Artem Lobov both tagged.
The artwork of the former featherweight and lightweight champion was created by Jonas Never outside O'Brien's Irish pub in Santa Monica, Los Angeles.
In the clip, Malignaggi was asked: “What do you think about this right guy here?”
The Brooklyn-born former world champion boxer then spat at the painting and said: “That’s what I think about him.”

The bad blood between McGregor and Malignaggi began from when the pair had a sparring session ahead of the Irishman’s boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather in the summer of 2017.
Malignaggi claimed that Team McGregor lied by posting an image of him on the canvas saying he was knocked down after said session together.
'The Notorious' has posted numerous pictures of himself appearing to floor Malignaggi in the session, although the American disputes the narrative that the MMA man got the better of him.
He has since attempted to set the record straight by declaring he outboxed McGregor and has tried persuading him to get back into the ring.
The ex two-division champ will make his bare-knuckle boxing debut against the Irishman's close friend Artem Lobov on June 22.
Following the incident, Lobov has vowed to “break Malignaggi’s jaw” when the pair meet on June 22 at an event planned for Durham, New Hampshire.News Now - Sport News
