Its been exactly a year since UFC president Dana White shared the first of what became a series of leaked video clips of former world boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi and UFC superstar Conor McGregor sparring ahead of McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather.

Irishman McGregor would ultimately lose that fight inside the distance a month later in Las Vegas.

But his online social media war with Paulie Malignaggi must have dragged on for nearly six months after.

Well, fast forward another six months and McGregor was keen not to let the anniversary date go unnoticed to New Yorker Malignaggi:

Of course, Paulie had a rebuttal:

There was debate after the Mayweather vs McGregor fight that the Irishman might have another boxing match after.

This time against Malignaggi.

Since then however a lot has happened for McGregor outside the ring, and then some.

Instead, he makes his return to the UFC for the first time in nearly two years this coming October.
