Paddy 'The Baddy' Responds To Putting Weight On Since UFC Victory
| Last updated
Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett shocked the fight world with a stunning victory on his UFC debut earlier this month. But more surprising for some than his MMA skills has been his impressive appetite.
The Liverpudlian has made no secret of his love for a hearty cheat meal, one example being him spending £50 on a Maccies haul before restaurants closed during lockdown last year.
And since his win over Luigi Vendramini at UFC Fight Night, when he looked incredibly lean at 155lbs, the 26-year-old has been enjoying life, with fans not shy in pointing it out to him.
On recently shared a side-by-side of Pimblett and Chris Griffin to Twitter.
But the fighter hasn't let it get to him, taking the comment in his stride.
Retweeting the Family Guy reference, the scouser wrote: "It me."
Others have also come out in defence of the mixed martial artist, calling out people for trying to bully him about his weight.
"Everyone having little snidey comments on @PaddyTheBaddy weight. So f*****g what, the future champ can do what he wants," put one supporter.
Another echoed the support, writing: "@PaddyTheBaddy what a lad, eats whatever he wants, goes into a camp, cuts down weight and dominates. That's a true inspiration."
While a third added: "Paddy living his best life. Don't worry about the binge, he will show up on weight and on point every time."
And Paddy has since revealed that he's about to return to training and work hard to get back to his fight weight.
He wrote: "Back on a diet realllll soon to get back in this sort of shape ."
Speaking previously about his fluctuating weight, Paddy said that he usually walks around at over 195lbs before cutting during his camp.
He said: "Well when I'm being a fatty lad I can get up to 89 kilo. When this camp started I was like 89.6 kilo (195.5 pounds).
"But that was like ten weeks ago. You know what I mean. That's how fast I am. What that's about 192 pounds, something like that?"
When asked about his favourite cheat meals when he's not in training, Paddy said there was a long list.
"There's too many to name. Literally too many to name them. Salt and pepper chicken, obviously I love Chinese food, love Italian food, I love steak, burgers, I'm terrible," he said.
"I'm bad for desserts. I can eat like four desserts in a row and not feel full."
