Brendan Schaub breaks down Paulie fighting in Bare Knuckle.
Whole summary of the situation –
How Paulie Malignaggi’s signing with Bare Knuckle FC came about. Bare Knuckle FC president David Feldman saw an opportunity and took it. He’d already started talking with former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi a little bit about joining BKFC, but on this night – Jan. 19, to be exact – the conversation started to get serious. It was after an appearance on MMA Junkie Radio at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Malignaggi had just finished going scorched earth on UFC President Dana White for his treatment of fighters. After the show, Malignaggi and Feldman, along with BKFC fighter and former UFC veteran Chris Lytle – who was also an in-studio guest – were getting ready to leave the casino with MMA Junkie Radio hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze.” Malignaggi was supposed to ride with George, but that’s when Feldman stepped in and offered him a ride down the Las Vegas Strip to the MGM Grand. George instead have Lytle a lift to the airport.
The rest, as they say, is history.
“We talked about him coming in and doing some commentating, and then I said, ‘Why do commentating, man? I think you should fight in this thing,’” Feldman told MMA Junkie Radio. “And then we talked about the Conor McGregor angle and stuff like that. We thought, let’s give it a shot.”
Feldman shared this behind-the-scenes last Thursday, the day it was announced that Malignaggi had signed an exclusive contract with BKFC.
“It just makes sense, man,” Feldman said of the acquisition. “He’s a cool guy. He’s so down to earth. He’s a really good dude, on top of he’s very flamboyant. He likes to talk. But he can fight.”
Not long after the signing, Malignaggi had already called out McGregor, with whom he’s been beefing ever since their fallout from training camp ahead of McGregor’s boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. Malignaggi also issued a statement on his social media, calling out any MMA fighter who wants to fight him bare-knuckle.
