UFC London: Paddy Pimblett's gesture to those saying he'd miss weight or pull out

Paddy The Baddy Weigh-In UFC London

Paddy Pimblett’s UFC career continues on Saturday night when he takes to the Octagon to face off with Jordan Leavitt on the undercard of Curtis Blaydes vs Tom Aspinall at UFC London.

It’s the third biggest fight of the evening and will get underway before the co-main event and the main event.

We get to see him back in the Octagon just a few months since his last fight where he defeated Rodrigo Vargas at the O2 Arena in London, forcing his opponent to submit in the opening round of the contest at UFC Fight Night.

Coincidentally, that win was on the undercard of an Aspinall main event, so The Baddy will be hoping history repeats itself and he can dominate and get a first round win again.

Even away from the Octagon, Pimblett manages to constantly make the headlines. One of the major talking points around him between fights is his weight.

He will pile the pounds on and live without restrictions when he isn’t in training, enjoying his life exactly how he wants to with no regard for training or a healthy diet.

However, that leaves him with a mountain of work to trim down and bulk up his muscle again in preparation for his next fight.

Pimblett reached a weight of 203 pounds a few months ago after his victory over Vargas, but has already managed to slim down to 156 pounds to meet his weight target for his next fight.

On top of that, he’s looking ridiculously hench ahead of the bout, you certainly wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of him!

After stepping on the scales and flexing his physique, Pimbett jumped off the scales, mouthing off to the press and cameras.

He remarked: “For everyone that tried to fat shame me and say I’d miss weight or f*****g what was it? Pull out? Kiss my a**.”

After that he turned around, pulled his boxers down to reveal his bare backside before slapping it to further mock those that doubted him.

You have to admire the dedication from Pimblett to get back into such perfect physical condition after letting himself go and being in what can only be described as a long way away from the ideal condition.
