Paddy Pimblett started out as a fan favorite but the jury is still out. The Liverpudlian is looking at a lengthy layoff following ankle surgery and isn’t anticipating a UFC return until the final quarter of 2023.
In the mean time, Pimblett likely won’t be able to promote his drink due to UFC’s new sponsorship with Logan Paul’s Prime.
Pimblett replied to recent taunts from Paul and accused him of PED use in an interview.
“It’s mad. He called me a clout-chaser years ago. And then, he’s clout-chasing me all the time, mentioning my name. All the time. So, If he ever wants to fight in UFC, he’s more than welcome.”
“I’ll be there waiting for him, just get his weight down a bit, come off the [PEDs] and we’ll fight”
This is an interesting accusation from Pimblett because there are UFC fans who are sure he’s dabbled in PEDs himself considering he was listed as a client of a TRT clinic Conor Benn frequented.
Logan Paul is likely to return to pro wrestling, for which he has actual talent, unlike boxing.
Previously Pimblett at one point claimed he would defeat both Pauls in a single night and Jake Paul issued a peculiar sparring challenge.
