Malignaggi got into a verbal spat with Conor McGregor after some sparring controversy. Malignaggi was brought in to help McGregor prepare for Floyd Mayweather. Leaked sparring photos and footage enraged “The Magic Man.”
During a recent edition of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan said Malignaggi should move away from feuding with MMA fighters (via MMAFighting.com):
“He should shut the f**k up because if he wanted to have a UFC fight he can go over there and get his brain kicked in. He’s out of his mind. Stop talking. You’re a boxer. You’re a very good boxer. Just shut your mouth.”
Rogan doesn’t believe Malignaggi stands a chance inside the Octagon.
“There’s literally a million people in the world that could grab you and strangle the life out of you and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Sorry dude. Don’t talk s**t. They will give you a wrestler and he will punch your f**king face into pulp and there’s not a god-damn thing you could do about it. Not a god-damn thing.”
