Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett is one of the fastest rising fighters in the world of mixed martial arts.
The 27 year old made his professional debut in 2012 at the age of just 27, when he signed with Cage Warriors.
The Liverpudlian has since risen up the ranks to make his way to the Ultimate Fighting Championships and carved a career for himself as one of the best known fighters in the sport, a feat that has come with plenty of financial reward.
What is Paddy The Baddy’s net worth?
As of 2022, Paddy The Baddy has an estimated net worth of $1-5 million (or £836,000-£4.2million), according to Networth & Salary.
This is thanks in part to his successful career in the UFC, where he has won over $100,000 in prize money alone. He also earns money from sponsorships and other income sources, including an endorsement deal with Barstool Sports worth over $1,000,000 that he signed in 2021.
Paddy first started training in mixed martial arts at the age 15 after being inspired by a fight between Vitor Belfort and Rich Franking at UFC 103. Not long after, he decided he wanted to compete in the sport professionally, something he achieved just two years after at the age of 17. In 2016, he claimed the Cage Warriors featherweight championship and defended it once before losing it and moving up to the lightweight category. He later scored two wins before signing a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Paddy currently competes in the lightweight division of UFC. The star recently faced a gruelling cut down from 205lb for his upcoming fight with Jordan Leavitt, after he admitted he went on a junk food binge following his first-round submission win against Kazula Vargas in March 2022. He successfully lost 45lb for the fight but admitted that he would rather be "fat" in between fights instead of maintaining his six-pack.
"I'd rather be fat and happy than ripped," he said during a press conference. "These people who are ripped all year round are not happy, I don't care what they say. This six-pack is sound, I look great but I'd rather be fat and happy."
Paddy The Baddy currently lives in Liverpool and says he never plans to leave the city. Speaking to The Guardian, he said: “I’ll be a billionaire eventually and there won’t be no kids eating out of food banks in this city then. I’ll make sure of it.”
