It came after a photo was doing the rounds showing the American on the floor after being ‘knocked down’ by McGregor.

Malignaggi insists it was the result of a push, and was seething at how he was “used” by the McGregor camp.

And now the retired Brooklyn boxer has again taken to social media to criticise the Irishman’s boxing durability.

He wrote on Twitter: “He whimpers like a girl when he gets ripped to body lol”.

When asked does he regret helping out McGregor, Malignaggi relpied: “Absolutely”.

He added: “When I look back at the experience as a whole, not just sparring but as a whole, yes there was definitely an agenda beyond shadow of a doubt.”

“I didn’t get paid, I’m not worried about it though. I paid him with the ass beating he received from me on Tuesday”.

SunSport reported yesterday that McGregor opened up on the controversial sparring session with Malignaggi and insisted the former boxer “got his ass whooped”.

Speaking on Showtime’s All Access, McGregor was adamant there was only one aggressor when the two sparred.

The Notorious said: “He stayed in there – you’ve got to give him respect for that.

“But that was it – he came, he got his a** whooped and that was it.”
