Following the release of images released by the camp which were taken by their in house photographer. Showing Malignaggi hitting the deck.

“He can’t make progress, he can’t learn, he just wants a bunch of yes men around him. “
Paulie feels that Conor doesn’t want to be told he’s doing things wrong. Or what he needs to change to make progress. And that he just wants to be told how great he is doing.
Paulie says that he is was not going to talk about the details of what happened inside the camp. Even if he had knocked down McGregor, he wouldn’t have talked about it. But their camp releasing their images forced him to make a decision. Paulie says that he hasn’t spoken with Conor. And even in camp it was quite sporadic.
Paulie also wasn’t happy about how the sparring partners are being treated inside the camp. For a 100 million fight, he thinks that the facilities should be better. While Conor drives around in his Lamborghini. The guys are living in mediocre conditions. Not the done thing for a million dollar fight in Paulie’s eyes.
