Paddy Pimblett reveals who he considers his GOAT in MMA

Paddy Pimblett revealed in a Q&A session that Jon Jones is his pick for the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. 'The Baddy' has become one


Paddy Pimblett revealed in a Q&A session that Jon Jones is his pick for the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.

‘The Baddy’ has become one of the most popular UFC fighters on social media, currently boasting over a million followers. The controversial 155-pounder will look to continue the momentum with an impressive performance on Saturday.

In a video uploaded to BT Sport, he shared his opinion on who he thinks is the best fighter in MMA:

“JonJones. Just look at his record, his resume, look at the people he’s beaten. He has beaten like three different generations of UFC light heavyweights. I think if he comes back and wins that heavyweight title, he will have cemented his place as [el más grande de todos los tiempos] easily”.

Pimblett is a fan of Jon Jones and all that he has accomplished inside the octagon. “Bones” still holds the record for the youngest UFC champion after his dominant TKO victory over Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua in 2011.

Paddy Pimblett takes on Kazula Vargas at UFC London this Saturday, March 19, and has vowed to emerge victorious with a first-round knockout victory.
