Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett is headed for the UFC
One of the most best seemingly names on the Cage Warriors roster is making his methodology to the UFC.
The promotion launched on Monday that old CWFC featherweight champion Paddy Pimblett has joined the fold, with a date and opponent for his UFC debut yet to be obvious.
“He has been our poster boy for years nonetheless now it’s his time to head to the UFC and display camouflage them what he can operate, and I, with the leisure of the Cage Warriors group, wish him the most effective seemingly of luck,” Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan said in a assertion.
Pimblett (16-3) is seemingly to compete at lightweight, having lost his featherweight title to Nad Narimani motivate in 2017 and therefore competing at 155 lbs ever since then. He’s coming off a 97-2d pause of Davide Martinez at Cage Warriors 122. The 26-three hundred and sixty five days-old Liverpudlian holds a take over fresh UFC fighter Julian Erosa and his best seemingly stoppage loss came towards Cameron Else in his fifth official fight.
Paddy has constructed up rather a following within the United Kingdom and thru his persona and combating vogue he can even change into a fan celebrated. He has visions of competing on a UFC card at Anfield, home to Liverpool FC of the English Premier League. Mild-weight is an absolute shark tank and one amongst the deepest divisions in all of MMA, so his pattern as a UFC fighter is extremely mighty price monitoring.
Right here’s how Pimblett stopped Martinez by rear-naked choke final week.
