It seems like everywhere you turn these days, Paddy Pimblett is in the news. 

Whether it’s an upcoming showdown with Jared ‘Flash’ Gordon at UFC 282, his quickly developing rivalry with Jake Paul, or simply trying to pick up his dog’s “sloppy sh*t” outside of a neighbor’s house, ‘The Baddy’ is making headlines. Perhaps the biggest topic of conversation surrounding Pimblett right now is Jake Paul. Specifically, the Liverpudlian’s nonchalant claim that Jake Paul’s fights are fixed. 

It’s something that many people are debating, but for a rising star with his reach and popularity to say it publicly is definitely out of the ordinary. The claim immediately fired up ‘The Problem Child’ who is now active in a daily dialogue with Pimblett, hoping to settle their differences inside the ring.

Meanwhile, UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier is getting a kick out of every moment. During the latest episode of ‘3 Rounds with Daniel Cormier‘ on YouTube, the former two-division champion shared his thoughts on the rise of Paddy Pimblett and how his upstart rivalry with Jake Paul is a good thing. 

“Now many people have said that. Just many people have said it publicly as Paddy Pimblett did and obviously that draws a reaction from Jake Paul. He doesn’t like when people talk about him.”

Jake Paul responded by challenging Pimblett to a sparring match. Offering to fly ‘The Baddy’ to Puerto Rico in a private jet, ‘The Problem Child’ said that if Pimblett wins, he’ll give the Liverpudlian a million dollars.

“Paddy said, ‘Come to the APEX, you and I will fight.’ I’ll take the million dollars. It’s all good. Paul replied, ‘I hear that my team, your team’s been trying to get me on your podcast. I will now fly you to the Dominican Republic where we’ll spar. Both of our teams will record the session and then we’re going to do a podcast.’ I swear, it feels like I’m in ‘The Young & The Restless’ because everybody’s going back and forth, talking about this, this, and the other. I mean, come on. 

“Again, that tells me it’s good for team Paddy because like they say, all media is good media. Because it seems like everybody is talking about what Paddy Pimblett’s doing. Whether or not he’s picking up dog sh*t or he’s arguing with Jake Paul. People are talking about Paddy the Baddy. It’s making news so things are good in the world of Paddy Pimblett, but one thing has to happen though. He has got to keep winning.” 

Daniel Cormier Believes All the Paddy Pimblett Hype is For Nothing If He Can’t Continue to Win

Debuting for the promotion in September 2021, Pimblett has scored three-straight stoppages over Luigi Vendramini, Rodrigo Vargas, and Jordan Leavitt. He’ll attempt to secure a fourth win inside the Octagon against Jared Gordon in the UFC 282 co-main event on December 10th. 

“For as fast as this happens, it can all go away if you don’t win and he’s got the toughest guy he’s ever faced in the Octagon [next] weekend in Jared Gordon. Jared Gordon is a tough dude that will bring the fight to Paddy Pimblett.”

“Times are really good for Paddy the Baddy. Everyone wants a piece of him, but you gotta win. You gotta keep winning impressively because as the competition raises, it gets a bit more difficult. But as it gets difficult, you’ve got to continue to excel in those moments because people aren’t just looking for someone to talk about. They’re looking at people that they believe can be champions at some point and right now, Paddy Pimblett has all the world talking because all he’s done is won.”
