MJF Teases Showing Up At UFC 282 For Paddy Pimblett

Could we see MJF cage-side?

As previously reported and seen on social media, AEW’s MJF and UFC’s Paddy ”The Baddy” Pimblett have been trading shots back and forth, both threatening to show up at each-others place of work. Now, Speaking with Marc Raimondi of ESPN, MJF stated that the AEW World Champion making an appearance at the upcoming UFC 282, where Paddy is fighting, could be a possibility.

I wouldn’t be shocked if the AEW world champion shows up on Dec. 10 in Vegas,

MJF continued on to express how he’s tired of outsiders hating on pro-wrestling and says Paddy wouldn’t last two seconds with him in a ring.

I’m sick and tired of people talking about pro wrestling as if it’s some f—ing stunt show. The fact of the matter is Paddy ‘The Prima Donna’ Pimblett would not last two seconds in a professional wrestling ring with me. Maybe not even one. This fat, moon-faced prick, Will-from-Stranger-Things-looking a–hole dollar store Conor McGregor decided he needed to chirp up and say, ‘Oh, wrestling is fake.’ Let me tell you something. We are real fighters. They are prima donnas.

MJF then continued the sentiment of inviting Paddy to AEW in London in 2023.

Pro wrestling is a dangerous, dangerous sport, and there is no one more dangerous than MJF. I can assure you when we come to London in 2023, if Paddy shows his face, he’s going to find out that a Scouser is no match for a Long Islander. Because I’m better than him and he knows it. There’s a target on my back at all times. Like I said, if ‘Paddy the Baddy’ thinks he can aim at that target and hit it, I am more than game. More than game to knock that guy out,

Could this showdown actually go down? we’ll see.. maybe sooner than later.
