- Paddy Pimblett insists his next fight will take place at Anfield
- “The Baddy” believes Dana White will allow him to fight outdoors just like he let women fight in the UFC when Ronda Rousey emerged
After another stunning performance in a sell-out UFC London event this past weekend, Paddy Pimblett is certain the promotion would need a bigger venue for his next fight. The unbeaten lightweight has long been talking about Anfield and following his submission win over Jordan Leavitt, “The Baddy” is confident UFC boss Dana White will finally say yes.
It’s Anfield for sure
According to Pimblett, White and the UFC will not pass up on the opportunity to sell ppvs with him on the main card. Hence, they will give Anfield a go.
“Yeah, most definitely. Yous know that,” Pimblett said post-fight. “Know what I mean… I know for a fact know that I’ll be fighting on PPVs, Jon Anik, Joe Rogan and DC (Daniel Cormier) commentating.”
“I know I won’t be fighting in The O2 again, it’s too small,” he added. “As I say… we will do Anfield. I promise you now.”
Dana will do what he did with Ronda
Pimblett further said he’s not worried despite White previously stating he’s not gonna allow a UFC event to take place in an outdoor stadium because his emergence in the promotion is like that of Ronda Rousey, citing how Dana break his word and let women fight under the company’s banner.
“Dana has said that he won’t do Anfield but he also said that women will never fight in the UFC years ago and Ronda Rousey came along… He said he won’t do a stadium in the UK but The Baddy came along, so he will,” he pointed out.
With the way Pimblett is taking the UFC by storm, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if White gives him a nod. Let’s see what will happen next.
