UFC reveals future plans for Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett
It’s safe to say that Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett is on the verge of becoming one of the biggest names in the UFC. With his latest victory at UFC London, the 27-year-old is 3-0 in the promotion, with all wins coming by stoppage.
“He’s got that Conor McGregor vibe man, when he walks out, when he’s in the arena, the way that the fans recive him, the way that media is covering him,” UFC president Dana White told the reporters at the DWCS 47 post-fight press conference.
“I think what we do next is, we take him to either Boston or New York, and he ends up on pay-per-view. And then you bring him to Vegas,” White said.

Paddy Pimblett spoke about mental health
Last Saturday, Paddy Pimblett took a second round submission-win over Jordan Leavitt. In the post-fight interview the 27-year-old spoke about the stigmas that’s surrounding mental health.
“I woke up on Friday morning at 4 am to a message that one of my friends back home had killed himself. This was five hours before my weigh-in. So Ricky, lad, that’s for you. There’s a stigma in this world that men can’t talk. Listen, if you’re a man, and you’ve got weight on your shoulders and you think the only way you can solve this is by killing yourself, please speak to someone. I know I’d rather have my mate cry on my shoulder than go to his funeral next week. So please, let’s get rid of this stigma and men, start talking,” Pimblett said in the octagon.
