Paddy Pimblett has called out Mark Zuckerberg in his post match interview saying he wants to fight him.
Paddy the Baddy was understandably buzzing with his dominant win over Rodrigo Vargas at UFC London last night (19 March).
However, when the 27-year-old was asked who he wants to fight next, he appeared to look pretty wound up after he took aim at the Facebook and Insta CEO.

After only his second ever fight in the UFC, the Liverpudlian said: "Who do I want to fight? Mark Zuckerberg.
"Lad I'm going to punch your head in, I am sick of you.
"Sick of you shutting my Instagram accounts down when all I do is help charities and help people with mental health problems.
"You're the biggest bully in the world, lad."

The fighter is upset with Zuckerberg after he claims that he is the reason why his Instagram accounts are being banned.
Well, the prospect of Pimblett Vs Zuckerberg is certainly getting fans excited.
One person wrote: "I’ve just checked, it’s definitely Mark himself who deletes the accounts individually.
"So now that’s cleared up, let’s get the fight made."
Another added: "Ironically I’d pay more money to watch Pimblett fight Mark Zuckerberg than I would for literally any other UFC PPV."
A third simply wrote: "Hell yes."
Although, some thought he called out the WhatsApp CEO because he was dodging a fight against Ilia Topuria.
"Literally scared to fight Topuria so he called out Mark Zuckerberg," one wrote.
Another UFC purist commented: "He had a fear in eyes when asked about ilia topuria."
Someone else demanded: "We best be getting the topuria fight."
Pimblett's seen two of his Instagram accounts taken down since his rise to superstardom and he's fully had enough.
He said earlier this week: "I always say that people with a platform like me should help people. It’s nice to be nice. We’ve got this platform for a reason, use it for good. Don’t use it for horrible reasons.
"All these social media websites need to sort their community guidelines out. I’ve had my account disabled at 920,000 followers.
"That messes with all the GoFundMe pages I help, all the sick kids and charities, homeless organisations, all the mental health charities I help with and all the people who have mental health issues that speak to me on a daily basis... Mark Zuckerberg is the biggest bully on the planet."
