Michael Bisping: Paddy Pimblett needs to do is just humble himself a little bit

Michael Bisping commented on Paddy Pimblett, who is coming out more and more often and attracting the attention of the media. Pimblett became a recognizable face in a short period of time. There are many reasons for this; His charisma, openness, and qualities have led him to be one of the most recognizable faces of the UFC scene.

“Some of the way he handled it afterwards wasn’t the best,” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast, as quoted by mmahour.com. “I can’t talk s***, because I did a similar thing myself, back in the day.

I’ve literally been in that position, 15 years ago. You’re young, you get a lot of attention, maybe a bit of it goes to your head a little bit, and you start to think to a certain degree that your s*** doesn’t stink.

Your s*** still stinks. Everyone’s does. It doesn’t matter how big you get, because the court of public opinion will bring you back down to Earth pretty f****** quickly, and that’s what he experienced there."

Bisping believes that Pimblett must change the way he presents himself.

It is obvious that Bisping is bothered by the way in which Paddy attracts attention, and his statements, which can often be controversial. “I think what Paddy needs to do is just humble himself a little bit. Stop with this ‘I’m the new cash cow’ s***.

When I asked him who would he want to fight next, ‘I don’t need to say anyone’s name because I am the man. I’m the boy, I’m the cash cow,’ and you’re yet to fight someone ranked. When you’re dominating people, that’s all well and good.

When you’re scraping by a victory, it doesn’t have the same effect, and it starts to rub people off the wrong way. Nobody in the top 10, certainly in the top five, needs Paddy to give them a rub. Dustin Poirier, Islam Makhachev, Charles Oliveira, these are household names in mixed martial arts.

They don’t need Paddy to say their name to get a few Instagram followers. The whole ‘pay me for interviews’ thing, I think that left a bad taste in people’s mouths. Again, I’m not hating. I’m just being honest in what I saw”.
