Those who don’t follow the UFC may not know or know Paddy Pimblett very well. He is one of the young rising stars of the number one company in mixed martial arts.. His record is 3-0 since he entered it, although he is actually on a five-game winning streak. In total, he has won 19 fights and lost 3 since his career began in 2012. And he is only 27 years old. His nickname is “The Baddy”. He is from Liverpool and fights in the lightweight division. He has great talent inside the cage and great charisma outside of it as well. Many compare him to Conor McGregor.

► MJF argues with Paddy Pimblett

Exactly that comparison came to light during his recent exchange of messages with MJF, the AEW World Full Weight Champion. Not in a good way, obviously, as the young fighter only has good words for himself. The two even scolded each other. And let’s remember that another MMA team like the American Top Team has been working on All Elite Wrestling. So it wouldn’t be crazy for Paddy Pimblett to do it in the future. At the moment, what we know is that both sports stars were dedicating unkind messages to each other.

Pimblett: «MJF, I have knowledge of MMA, right? About which you have zero knowledge, so don’t go there. If you want to have a real fight, make a deal with the UFC! Or tell your boss (Tony Khan) to hire me when you come over to Fulham ground (Khan’s owned Premier League football team). I’ll be ready, son.”

MJF: «AEW plans a show nearby. If you’re man enough, I’d love to show you how real I am.«.

Pimblett: “Don’t act like you really want it. When you come over tell your boss to talk to my boss (Dana White) and see what they can fix. Because I know you really wouldn’t pass a USADA (Anti-Doping Agency) test to fight in the UFC.«.

MJF: «Unlike you, I am 100% natural and also 100% original. Not like you. You’re Conor McGregor from dollar store talking and Will from Stranger Things looking. You wouldn’t last two seconds in my world. See you in London.”
