Paddy the Baddy shares the unholy amount of food he eats off-season

Paddy the Baddy shares the unholy amount of food he eats off-season

Paddy the Baddy’s fluctuating diet is no secret, but even so, fans might be shocked to hear just how hard he binges between fights. 

The UFC champ - real name Paddy Pimblett - has been open about his love for junk food, even joking before that he’ll be ‘diabetic’ when he retires from the sport. 

Since he has to restrict while training for a fight in the lightweight division, he doesn’t hold back when he’s off-season. 

This was evident during a recent interview on The Dog Walk podcast, when he appeared alongside fellow UFC fighter ‘Meatball’ Molly McCann to discuss their recent trip in Chicago. 

Talk soon turned to food after Molly pointed out that Paddy was ‘breathing so heavy’, with host Barstool Eddie laughing before suggesting it’s down to the local cuisine

At this point, Paddy chimes in to say ‘I’m a fat b*****d’, before listing off the sheer amount he and Molly ate in one - I repeat, one - day.

First up, they started by talking about what they’d eaten before the show, having been to a hot dog stand called The Wiener's Circle.

Paddy had, unsurprisingly, a wiener, as well as a chicken sandwich, most of Molly’s cheeseburger and a full two portions of cheesy chips. 

He continued: “Then we went to Five Guys after and got a milkshake.”

But we’re only just getting started here. 

The day before, the athlete said: “We had a brekkie at something called Yolk - I had two fried egg bagels with bacon on them and potatoes. And then I had Nutella crepes.

“Then we had Chinese - noodles and orange chicken and rice and sesame chicken.”

Next up, they went to a pizzeria called Lou Malnati's where they ordered two portions of mozzarella sticks and chicken wings to start.

For their mains, they had a half pepperoni/half chicken sausage deep dish pizza as well as Lou Malnati's own deep dish and a regular pepperoni pizza. 

“And then we got two cookie dough desserts, two big ones,” concluded Paddy. 

I’ve got heart palpitations just thinking about eating that much in a day - it’s no wonder Paddy was struggling to breathe. 

Dozens of people have commented on the hilarious clip, with one writing on Twitter: “He's so full that it made him high, incredibly impressive.”

Another said: “Yolk breaky, Chinese lunch, Wiener’s Circle, milkshake, and Lou’s consumed in a 24 hour time period will henceforth be known as the Paddy Challenge.”

A third quipped: “Guy is gonna be a heavyweight if he stays in Chicago much longer.”

Despite what other people might think about the impact this kind of eating could have on his career, Paddy’s previously demonstrated that he’s able to get into shape quickly for a fight.

Speaking on Gary Neville’s YouTube show The Overlap last month, he said: “People will say to me 'oh your fat' and they'll think I'll struggle [to make weight]. 

“I've still got 14 and a half kilos to lose but that's nothing. 

“About six weeks ago I was 93kg and I fight at 70kg - that was me being fat but it comes off of me fast.”
