The Paulie Malignaggi and Conor McGregor rivalry has been reignited as of late, with the former boxing champion being booked to face the UFC star’s teammate Artem Lobov in bare knuckle boxing. After Malignaggi slapped Lobov during a scuffle at a BKFC event, it restarted yet another back and forth on social media with McGregor.

Well, the pettiness has continued, and it’s likely not going to stop even after Malignaggi and Lobov face off in June. The former two-division boxing champion took to Instagram with a video of him spitting on a mural of McGregor. Watch the clip below.

Malignaggi has been angling for a ‘money’ fight with McGregor since their now infamous sparring session from 2017. The 38-year-old, who is coming out of retirement for this bare knuckle boxing match, recently stated that once he puts Lobov in a ‘coma,’ McGregor will surely want to fight him next.
