Former UFC Lightweight title challenger and top contender Michael Chandler has taken notice of rising lightweight from the UK, Paddy Pimblett.
After his recent win against Jordan Leavitt at UFC London Card, Paddy Pimblett has achieved his fifth consecutive victory during the course of his to-date UFC run.
Although Pimblett is adored in the UK but a significant portion of the UFC fan base has been dissuaded by his aggressiveness and weight gain in between fights.
During his UFC London guest fighter press conference, Chandler explained what makes Pimblett a name to watch in the coming years.
“He’s a marketable guy, he’s a happy guy, he’s a fun guy, he’s fun to watch, fun on the microphone. He’s the total package. People can hate on him all they want, but they’re just being haters because Paddy Pimblett’s the total package. Can he put it all together inside the Octagon… and continue to keep winning? We’ll see.”
A showdown between Chandler and Pimblett might be happening in the future but It’s also clear that Chandler has a lot of admiration for the British star.
