Joe Rogan Reveals how Paddy Pimblett made a lot of enemies among athletes

The breakout UFC star Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett gained even more fame after his second appearance inside the octagon last weekend. He beat Rodrigo Vargas in the first round via a rear-naked choke.

Paddy Pimblett was already popular, before joining the UFC. The 27-year-old Brit was a former Cage Warriors champion and was well-known among the English and in particular citizens of Liverpool. Now, after backing up his words with two must watch performances, Pimblett is widely regarded as the future UFC superstar.

But Pimblett’s popularity may have done him a disservice. Famous UFC color commentator Joe Rogan revealed that Pimblett has a lot to worry about when it comes to other UFC athletes.

Joe Rogan was talking to the UFC president Dana White about Paddy Pimblett and told White:

“You know, fighters got upset by like how popular he was getting, and they were making all these memes where they were putting like his hair on a bunch of different fighters. There was like a whole series of them that were going around. I don’t know if fighters were doing it or if other people online were doing it.” Joe Rogan said.

Joe Rogan, didn’t reveal the names of the upset athletes. He was talking about a meme trend that’s been going around ever since Pimblett made his debut. The meme involved Pimblett’s iconic hair edited onto other athlete’s heads.

Conor McGregor already addressed Pimblett following his second outing last weekend.

“Good luck Paddy. I was outside your house in the late hours of the night. With the long haired guy who is doing 30 years in prison. I don’t remember his name. hahahaha. ‘Knock Knock’ joke insinuating Michael Bisping cowardly ran away from [a] long haired guy.” McGregor wrote, translated.
