MayMac Fight: Paulie Malignaggi goes off on Pillsbury Doughboy Dana White

Paulie Malignaggi gives a rant about Conor McGregor and saved a bit of his anger for UFC president Dana White.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Malignaggi shot White saying he has never been a fan of him and does not like the way he treats UFC athletes.

White posted the controversial sparring footage between Malignaggi and McGregor last week which has made the internet intrigued.

Malignaggi said, “That fat (expletive) Dana White, The Pillsbury Doughboy. You put a white on him and give him a white shirt, he looks like the Pillsbury Doughboy. I just want to knock him off through his belly button, so he can go ‘hoo hoo hoo,’ like that little laugh from the Pillsbury Doughboy, you know?”

When McGregor and Malignaggi sparred for the second time around, Dana White was there two weeks ago. Dana White posted a video of McGregor knocking Malignaggi off his feet. But Malignaggi said it was push down – McGregor held down his head and Malignaggi lost his balance when McGregor punch him more, Malignaggi said. He said the video was edited in a “Hollywood” style and could be seen better in slow motion.

“I never liked White. I don’t think he treats the fighters fairly,” He said. “I don’t think he treats the UFC fighters fairly. There’s no Ali Act in MMA because of him primarily, first and foremost. He’s one of the guys that try to restrain it from happening.”

The extension of boxing’s Ali Act to MMA was avert by the influence of UFC, which is currently in the Congress. Malignaggi tweeted about his views before the whole happenings, writing that is was “weird” to see MMA fans cheer so loudly for White during the MayMac World Tour.

White acknowledge Malignaggi’s comment in an interview with Sky Sports.

“Paulie had said some crazy stuff, some bad things about me,” White said.” I felt sorry for the guy. Paulie was obviously lying about everything that happen in the sparring match, so I released it.”

Mayweather vs McGregor will be on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena.

What does the allowance of 8 oz gloves mean for MayMac? Why was it changed?

Floyd Mayweather Jr. made an uncommon concession for Conor McGregor as of late by permitting the confining gloves their August session to be 8 ounces. Conor obviously is utilized to the 4 oz gloves with finger gaps intended for both striking and catching in the UFC so this may facilitate the dissatisfaction of MMA fans. Mayweather could have made the battle with gloves as high as 16 oz pads which would ruin McGregor's speed and make it harder for the punches to traverse Mayweather's protections. Strangely, and most likely considering a sound technique the choice was made for 8 oz. The inquiry is the reason? 

Certainty OR ARROGANCE? 

The first on this rundown is for McGregor and Mayweather to be given a superior possibility and perhaps make the battle all the more fascinating for Floyd. As I would like to think this is not really presumption, but rather more certainty. Floyd has battled and crushed folks like Canelo Alvarez, Shane Mosley, and Oscar De La Hoya who are every one of the three astonishing boxers. McGregor hasn't battled once in the boxing ring as an ace and the folks specified above would in all probability destroy him to a KO misfortune. Canelo is the second best boxer on the planet at the present time as I would like to think. His lone misfortune? Mayweather. GGG is second, yet a contention could be made for him being the best person in the game. Once more, both of these two would most likely slaughter Conor. So the reason must be certainty after Floyd beat folks like Alvarez who have stellar records inside the squared circle. 

Reasonable FIGHT 

Floyd may really need this to be aggressive and for him as well as for the fans. Mayweather has never called it quits from a test yet the difficulties are precisely picked when the planning is totally right. Floyd chooses occurs in and from the ring on account of a sound procedure and doesn't simply settle on choices spontaneously. There is a strategic purpose behind Mayweather to permit 8 oz gloves and it is most likely not to give McGregor a superior possibility. It could likewise profit Floyd who has bursting quick hand speed and could sneak some punches through Conor's protective position. Ideally, for his purpose, Conor is utilizing the best calf pressure sleeves in his preparation.

Pay Per View Price for Mayweather versus McGregor Announced

The greatest battle of the year has at last gotten its compensation per see valuing breakdown sorted out, and UFC president Dana White was correct when he said the estimating would be like "the Pacquiao cost". The battle between once resigned veteran boxing star Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is set to go down on August 26th and has been named the second "Battle of the Century" by fans and media alike.

White has assessed that the session could draw more than 5 million pay for every view buys, setting up both Mayweather and McGregor to bring home a flat out truckload of money. The session amongst Mayweather and Pacquiao back in May of 2015 saw over $400 million gotten in income, with Mayweather bringing home about $220 million all up. Considering Mayweather brought home the bigger pay bundle, it appears we will see history rehash itself. The amount McGregor will be left with by the day's end is impossible to say at this stage, without any subtle elements set to be discharged.

The standard definition variant of the battle on August 26th is set to cost $89.95, while the HD adaptation will set you back a cool $99.95 as indicated by Madelyn Flax, the representative for Showtime. That may sting a little in case you're a general blended combative technique fan, where pay per sees tend to cost around $50 to $60 for standard and top quality forms, yet for a battle of this extent you can simply make certain the compensation per see costs will be raised a bit.

"When you discuss super battles, this is a super battle – two diverse folks from two unique games going in and putting it hanging in the balance," said White. "Clearly, you can't charge what you would typically charge for a compensation for every view. What's more, saying there was pushback on the Mayweather-Pacquiao battle, there was definitely not – it's the greatest battle ever per-see."

The session will happen at the T-Mobile Arena, with advancement starting on Tuesday in LA, at that point Toronto, New York and London will take after consistently.
