UFC star Paddy Pimblett leaked an old chat featuring messages from Youtuber Logan Paul who recently challenged him. Pimblett also revealed that Logan still wants to have a bout with him.
Paddy Pimblett successfully rose to fame after easily winning his UFC debut last September. In his second UFC bout, he made his name even bigger when he choked UFC debutant Kazula Vargas into submission. Recently, the former Cage Warriors champion had his third bout against Jordan Leavitt and marked his third UFC victory after submitting Leavitt in the third round.
Pimblett’s success caught the attention of celebrity boxer Logan Paul. Logan is well known as an internet celebrity. The 27-year-old had a lot of wrestling experience during his highschool days and recently signed with WWE. Even though they have have a significant difference in height.
Logan has shown his interest to go toe-to-toe with Pimblett and has called him out several times.
Prior to his recent outing, Paddy Pimblett was asked about a potential match with Logan Paul. He then recalled a time where Logan called him a “clout chaser”.
“I just started giggling. A couple of months ago, he messaged me, calling me a clout chaser.” Pimblett said.
“Everyone knows what I do. He wrestled in high school. I have a division one wrestler come over from the US who’s wrestled at 84 kilos out of North Carolina. Jason, you know what I mean? I have him; he comes in and wrestles with me. I’ve wrestled with better people.”
“You wouldn’t be able to take me down. I’d put him on his back, that’s what I mean. This monkey car thinks that he’s going to take me down and hold me. He’s not going to get me down. I wrestle with a better southpaw wrestler every day. I can’t wait to elbow his face.” Pimblett concluded.
Paddy Pimblett is a 1st-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and is certainly a new threat for the UFC lightweight division. ‘The Baddy’ has fought three times in the UFC with all of them ending via submission.
