Paddy Pimblett wants UFC contract; says he would “steal the show” on rumoured Manchester card


Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett says he is ready for a UFC contract and wants on the rumoured UFC Manchester card in October.

The Next Generation Liverpool fighter is coming off of an impressive submission victory against Frenchman Teddy violet at CWFC 77, taking his unbeaten streak to seven (11-1 MMA).

Pimblett is one of Europe’s hottest prospects, attracting fans from all over the globe.

Fans as far as Canada and the Netherlands have come to watch “The Baddy” compete in the Cage Warriors promotion.

“I’ve got more and more people following me, every time I fight. The other night a girl who I talk to on Facebook, she comments on my posts and Instagram and stuff, came all the way from Holland to watch me fight on Cage Warriors. Someone from Vancouver was saying to one of my mates that they’ve come to watch me, too. It’s getting worldwide. I’ll say it again, and I’ve said it before; everyone is going to know who “The Baddy” is.”

Speaking with Niall and Petesy on Talking Brawls Podcast on the outspoken and highly touted featherweight fighter feels a contract with the big show is imminent, sooner rather than later.

“Everyone on my social media is tagging Sean Shelby, Dana White and the UFC. I should get the call up.”

There have been strong rumours that UFC 204 will take place in Manchester, early October. The 21 year-old from Liverpool has a huge fan base and Liverpool is only 40km from Manchester. The”Baddy” believes he would take a massive crowd to Manchester. Considering Pimbletts’ popularity and charisma, It would be a no-brainer for the UFC to grant the talented young fighter a contract and a place on the rumoured card.

“I guarantee you now that if I got a place on that Manchester card, I’d get the best reception out of anyone. I’d get a better reception than Bisping.”

Pimblett says he’s certain he will be the talk of the MMA world if he is granted a contract and a place on the rumoured card.

“I’ll steal the show that night; don’t you worry, I’ll steal the show. I’ll be the one everyone is talking about after that night.”
