Paddy Pimblett believes that the UFC commentary team was going against him during his promotional debut.

Back in Sept. 2021, Pimblett made his UFC debut against Luigi Vendramini. It was quite the first impression from Paddy as he knocked out Vendramini in the first round.

While Paddy was widely praised for his debut, he wasn’t exactly feeling the love from Daniel Cormier and Michael Bisping, who were in the booth for the fight.

Paddy Pimblett Takes Issue With UFC Commentary Team

During an interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Paddy Pimblett explained why he feels Cormier and Bisping were being biased on commentary (h/t MMANews.com).

“Yeah, they were just going against me to be honest. That’s why at one point I heard DC go like, ‘He’s losing this round’, and then I was like, ‘Am I yeah? I’m losing this round?’ and that’s when I bit down on me gummy and started going on him. I think it’s hard to take him down and then when we got straight back up, I went at him and started throwing punches. I knew I broke him, he hit me with his biggest shot and I stood there. And then I heard DC and Bisping and went forward and put it on him.”

Paddy is set to return to action on March 19. He’ll share the Octagon with Kazula Vargas at UFC London. While Pimblett is focusing on Vargas, he has some bad blood with Ilia Topuria, who is also on the card. The two got into a physical altercation before fight night.
