Paddy Pimblett has had a short career so far inside the UFC octagon but with two fights, two finishes and if the reaction he received at UFC London is any indication, he is a future star in the promotion. However, if you were to ask Pimblett himself, he’d say he already is the star of the show.
“I’m probably the biggest name in the sport. There’s Ronda Rousey, there’s Conor McGregor and now there’s Paddy the Baddy lad.” Pimblett said on UFC Destined: Pimblett vs Vargas Part 2 on ESPN+. The Liverpool native is certainly full of confidence and time will tell if he will become a box office star of Rousey and McGregor’s calibre.
