MOSCOW, 22 Jul – British Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Paddy Pimblett at the weigh-in advised kissing him on the buttocks to anyone who doubts his ability to make weight before fights.
On Saturday in London, the Briton will fight in lightweight against American Jordan Leavitt at the UFC Fight Night 208 tournament. In between fights, Pimblett does not follow his diet and gains 25 kg, which is why he is criticized and ridiculed.
“For everyone who tried to embarrass me and said that I would fail – kiss my ass,” Pimblett said after a successful weigh-in, after which he lowered his underpants and showed his buttocks.
Often referred to as the “new Conor McGregor”, the UK representative made his UFC debut in September 2021. At UFC Fight Night 191, he defeated Brazilian Luigi Vendramini by knockout. In total, in mixed martial arts (MMA), Pimblett had 21 fights, in which he won 18 victories and suffered three losses.
