UFC president Dana White has released footage on his personal Instagram of a sparring session between UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and former WBA and IBF champion Paulie Malignaggi.

Earlier in the month a photo was posted on social media which appeared to show Malignaggi on the canvas.

Malignaggi controversially left McGregor’s training camp straight after the leaked photos claiming there had been no knockdown.

Malignaggi adamantly denied these claims and taunted the UFC brass to release footage proving it was a knockdown.

The footage (below) released by Dana White shows Malignaggi dropped after a barrage of shots to the head, going against his claims of it being a push down.
