New, 130 comments

That’s not a pushdown. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a knockdown.

But don’t take my word for it. Now, you can judge for yourself, courtesy of UFC president Dana White. Check out the footage above as UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor puts the rumors to rest and proves he got the better of former boxing champion Paulie Malginaggi inside of the ring.

After weeks of hearing Malignaggi complain about photos being released, including one of McGregor standing over Malignaggi, now we finally get the footage.

It appears McGregor’s account of the events might be closer to the truth than one might have believed.

Does this short clip change your perception of McGregor’s chances against Floyd Mayweather?

Malignaggi is still arguing it.

Until McGregor locks horns with Mayweather on Aug. 26 live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, his boxing potential with remain masked.
