Should we take this with a pinch of salt? Paulie Malignaggi quit the Conor McGregor training camp because he believed there were photos leaked that showed him in a bad light during his sparring sessions with the Notorius.

In a much-publicised fallout, video footage then emerged of McGregor flooring Malignaggi who then launched a staunch defence online, claiming it was a push down and not a knockdown and accusing the McGregor camp of editing the footage to make the Dubliner look good.

Since then, Malignaggi has done all he can to keep his name in the spotlight.

The former two-time world champion showed up earlier this week at a public event to face down McGregor and before that he proclaimed his desire to fight the Irishman after the Mayweather $500million Las Vegas extravaganza.

Now a fresh clip from the sparring sessions have emerged. In the 14-second clip, McGregor looks dominant but does it tell the full picture?
