Let us take a closer look at Lobov vs Malignaggi as well as the possibility of McGregor fighting the latter.

Lobov vs Malignaggi: Was Paulie Treated Unfairly?

Following the match where he lost on his BKFC debut, Paulie Malignaggi said that while he is grateful to the fans, he felt that he was treated unfairly by the judges who were present ringside. He claimed to have ‘outboxed’ Lobov all through the match and even complained of having perhaps broken his right hand.

What was rather surprising for Malignaggi was that he was an American, fighting in his own country, but still got booed despite facing a Russian fighter on the other end.

Conor McGregor vs Paulie Malignaggi Next?

Given that McGregor has a personal beef with Malignaggi, the two have been taking shots at each other on social media for quite a long time. Now that Lobov has scored a win over Paulie, the latter would be in a rather frustrated state of mind and looking forward to exact revenge.
