Malignaggi can be seen falling to the floor after a string of punches from McGregor. We were anxious about him.
"I'm sure he has", McGregor said.
With exactly two weeks remaining until McGregor clashes with Floyd Mayweather in a fight called the biggest combat sporting event ever, the usually loud "Money" has become nearly an afterthought as the McGregor vs. Malignaggi drama becomes a three-headed monster in its own right.
Malignaggi took to Twitter to continue to dispute the claim that McGregor, who will box the 49-0 Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas, knocked him down. That would back up Malignaggi's statements that McGregor does hit hard, but that his power was simply "above average".
But the timeline changed overnight, with UFC chief Dana White posting two videos on Twitter.

Israel joins UAE and Egypt with Al Jazeera ban
Al Jazeera says its journalists were barred from the press conference where the announcement was made. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has likened its coverage to "Nazi Germany-style" propaganda.
Malignaggi, who retired from boxing five months ago, walked out earlier this month after he said McGregor disrespected him in the ring and the dressing room and housed him and the other sparring partners in accommodations resembling a "crackhouse". Straight after it we were anxious.
The "knock down" photo that sparked Malignaggi's rants and exit from McGregor's camp was finally shown, and it definitely doesn't look like the "push" Malignaggi claimed it to be. We thought the worst was about to happen. "The man was badly, badly concussed. He got his ass whooped, he got his pride dented and then he wanted a way out". McGregor invited Malignaggi to camp to gain experience sparring a high-level boxer ahead of the showdown.
"He believes it's not going past four and I believe that it's not going to go the distance at all", said Mayweather at his media workout.
"This guy is one of the biggest dirtbags I've ever met in my life - bar none", Malignaggi told MMA Hour. Conor is one of the biggest athletes in the world today, defined by his extreme talent, work ethic and personality, which are values that we reflect every day at Betsafe.
