Fighters React to Conor McGregor’s ‘Knockdown’ of Paul Malignaggi

When a nuclear explosion goes off on planet MMA, ground zero is Twitter.

Everyone scrambles to the crater of impact to lob their sarcasm, GIFs, or the rare well-thought out analysis. All colors…

That’s right, the very barbarian gladiators and gladiatresses (?) we hoist onto pedestals, descend briefly to our level to react as fans. As soon as daddy Dana White plastered the footage of his poster child Conor McGregor sparring Paul Malignaggi, you could practically smell the animated reaction popcorn. The footage was better than expected and so were other MMA fighter’s reactions. If it was up to us, they’d all get a bonus.
