UFC superstar Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett’s seemingly unhealthy ways of losing weight has been a major topic for UFC fans and experts during his time in the promotion.

In a recent YouTube video, the Liverpool native reflected on his last training camp ahead of UFC London in July.

“Last camp was one of the worst camps of my life,” Pimblett said. “The day I got back from America, I had, like, seven weeks to make weight. The UFC just announced that date and I was like, I’m going to have to fight on it, aren’t I? It’s in the O2. I had seven weeks to lose, like, 20 kilos, and I did it.”

In less than three weeks from now, “The Baddy” will enter the octagon for the fourth time as he takes on Jared Gordon at UFC 282 in Las Vegas.

“Where I’m at now, I’ve got, like, nine kilos to lose. I’ve done more than that overnight. I’ve done 8.4 kilos overnight before, I can do nine kilos in four weeks.”

Paddy Pimblett: “Why do you think I get so fat?”

The Liverpudlian lightweight’s recepie of losing weight is as simple as effective.

“There’s no rocket science to it,” Pimblett said. “It’s not hard. Get yourself in a calorie deficit. Why do you think I get so fat? Because I’ve got to go from eating 1,500 to 2,000 calories a day to eating 8,000 a day. That’s why the weight piles on and that’s why it comes off so easy.”
