Paulie Malignaggi has been generating more headlines than Conor McGregor's upcoming opponent Floyd Mayweather over the past week, and now he's looking to capitalize on that by lining himself up as the Irish superstar's next opponent.

Malignaggi insists he simply wanted to assist McGregor's preparations, despite exchanging heated words beforehand and vented his anger on Twitter after UFC President Dana White posted short videos of the sparring sessions.

Former two-weight world champion Malignaggi sensationally walked out of McGregor's training camp after photos were released that suggested he had been knocked down by the UFC star. "White hit back on Tuesday, however, accusing Malignaggi of 'lying" about his time in camp. Come on. It's footage of the actual sparring, ' he told Sky Sports. Malignaggi is insistent that the knockdown was not a knockdown at all and instead calls it a shove.

"What am I, Steven Spielberg?"

'I was there for all 12 rounds and Paulie has said some insane things, some bad things about me. "The problem is Conor doesn't want Mayweather to see everything he is working on". The UFC chief said he would be happy to oblige the retired fighter but suggested Malignaggi was right to leave camp for the sake of his health.

'It was very one-sided, it was an absolute beating.

"I had no choice but to leave".

Konstantine is seen playing a ukulele and sings about McGregor's rise - who went cashing social welfare payments to big-time fighter.

"It would be interesting to see McGregor fight Paulie Malignaggi". "When you watch Conor McGregor fight, he's a stand-up fighter who likes to throw his hands".

"As long as he doesn't get the living s*** beaten out of him, I think the demand is there to make the fight".
