UFC Fight Night 114, The Morning After: Malignaggi says McGregor ‘whimpers like a girl when he gets ripped to body’

What you may have missed from last night ...

Sergio Pettis collected his fourth straight win yesterday; Rashad Evans his fourth straight loss. Seven first-round finishes combined with razor-thin decisions to deliver a fight card high on violence and suspense, but low on general impact. Sergio Pettis may be next in line for his flyweight title shot, but it wasn’t a performance I could bring myself to believe portended success against the great Demetrious Johnson. Niko Price demonstrated that he is a breakout talent at welterweight; he should be facing ranked contenders next.

Meanwhile, Paul Malignaggi was active yesterday responding to Twitter users after leaving Team McGregor August 3rd. He says the non-disclosure form he signed was “null and void” because he never got paid.

If true, that would seem to be a huge oversight by McGregor and company; the only thing keeping Malignaggi from ‘telling all’ about Irishman’s technique are his ethics. (and the fact that he said he wouldn’t). Those ethics aren’t keeping him from giving “the story straight about stuff” though.

Malignaggi confirms what many thought- his faint praise of McGregor was indeed damning.

He promised more insight into their last sparring session, starting with this nugget: “he whimpers like a girl when he gets ripped to the body lol”

Malignaggi feels he got played... which should be obvious at this point.

Sunday Funday

Vasyl Lomachenko beat up Miguel Marriaga last night and made it look easy.

Knock knock!

This knockdown ended it. Marriaga quit on the stool after the sixth round.

This stat doesn’t seem right, but it is. Will Pettis the Younger surpass Pettis the Elder? He’ll need a UFC title first, but at only 24, he’s come a long way.

Oh man. That’s just unfair to Todd Grisham.

This was an insanely painful knee the face ...

Magomadov put him out cold with ground strikes.

I love knight fights.

I don’t think historical knights did all that much ground work, but they also never fought in a ring so I’m okay with this.

This white knight is not having a good day.

Enjoy your Sunday, Maniacs!
