Paddy Pimblett is a sensation in the UFC world. This great fighter recently registered his third victory and many predict him to win the title in the near future. Paddy has already attracted the attention of a large number of fighters, and one of those who decided to call him out is Terrance McKinney.
Pimblett is aware that he is now an 'interesting commodity' and that anyone would want to fight him. “Everyone wants to fight me,” Pimblett told MMA Fighting at UFC San Diego. “He’s got less than 100,000 followers and I’m at 1.8 million or something.
That’s why they want to fight me. But also, I’m not a very scary dude. “I don’t look that intimidating. People think ‘I can beat him,’ but when you get in the cage with me and you’ve got to solve the puzzle, you can’t”.
Pimblett revealed that he already had contact with McKinney and that he was ready to fight him. However, Pimblett is ready to fight anyone and it will not be a problem for him. "Me and Terrance have actually spoke,” Pimblett said.
“In the past, we spoke on Twitter and we actually said we would probably fight in a few years down the line, when it’s a main event on a proper big card. “But he’s obviously seen how I blew up and he wants to jump the queue and jump the bandwagon now.
I don’t mind. I’ll fight anyone. We’ll see what happens over the coming weeks with a few lightweight results and we’ll see what happens”.
Paddy Pimblett and diet
Pimblett also has problems with his diet, as he cannot resist certain things.
This also affects his weight, but he explained when it will change. “When I’m a bit older and once I start fighting ranked opponents, I will keep my weight down,” Pimblett said. “But for now, I enjoy putting a little bit of chub rub on”.
He also revealed where he would like to fight. “I think I’m going to fight in Vegas,” Pimblett said. “That’s what I’m hoping. I’ve seen that card getting slated for Dec. 10”. “When I’m a bit older and once I start fighting ranked opponents, I will keep my weight down,” Pimblett said.
“But for now, I enjoy putting a little bit of chub rub on”. We hope for a great rise of this fighter because he has great potential. He showed that he represents a big problem for everyone within the organization.
