Conor McGregor

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is reportedly in negotiations to fight former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi in the squared circle.

That news comes via @BoxingKingdom14, who reported the following on Twitter:

“Credible Source: Negotiations on-going between Conor McGregor & Paulie Malignaggi. (Boxing)”

That report was echoed by mixed martial arts insider @TalkMMA who took to social media with the following information.

“I’m hearing that @PaulMalignaggi vs @TheNotoriousMMA boxing match is in light discussions. This is most likely Conor and Paul’s Best chance for a long awaited grudge match, and for both to make a little bit more extra cheddar. Like discussions for now. Nothing serious.”

Likely that's its all just rumours but would be interesting if it does actually come to fruition

I doubt the UFC is going to greenlight Conor potentially losing again. 

He'll fight Peahead or somebody like that. Somebody he can beat.

If they make this fight I'm going to permaban everyone and then myself.  

Was it not you who was trolling Paulie last time or am I thinking about someone else lol? This should provide plenty of new ammunition

Paulie wins easily via Conor getting out boxed against a Sambo specialist.

Yeah I'm sure Conor is really going to have to sweat those takedowns

You still think Conor is gonna win a fight against an actual boxer?

Even one at Paulie's level.

Ok, then. Just making sure. You were starting to sound like he would have a chance since he didn't have to worry about takedowns.

Comber can't make 145. He's not getting the 155 lbs title back. He would get literally decapitated by Woodley.

He really has nowhere to go but into boxing at this point.

 Why can't be make 145? I reached my lowest weight for 20 years in my early 40s.

That said, emaciated runner is probably not the ideal build for fighting.

Question is if he can keep himself there (which I think he can)

If I remember correctly, he looked pretty bad back on his last 145 appearances (weight in day)

Totally agree and ... thats the reason why I believe baldy will come up with a division only for him and no grapplers/wrestlers or anyone bigger than him will be allowed on it

He could barely make the weight 4-years ago. Your anecdotal evidence aside, it only gets harder when you get older, and I doubt being filthy rich helps either.

If he could make the weight, the UFC would have let him go down and smash Aldo again for easy marketing.

He didn't look great... but he's never missed weight and he's never gassed at 145 (although tbf he wasn't in any 5 round wars).

Holloway rematch is intriguing.

Takedowns will only be allowed when Comber gets rocked.

If I could be bothered to start a poll, I wonder which the fans are most interested in? Holloway rematch, top 5 LW fight or this freak show?

Guy just signed a record deal with the UFC, has a newborn, and is 0-1 in boxing. 

This thread is the fakest of news.

I agree 100%

Max vs Conor at 145 should be the fight to be made NOW

Holloway rematch now that Max isn't 20 years old.  The first two rounds would be epic and then Conor would catch a fade and shoot a double.  Max sparks him clean out late 3rd.
