Paddy Pimblett not in interested in being on the UFC Liverpool card


When the UFC lands in Liverpool on May 27th, most people, I included thought having Paddy Pimblett on the show was a near certainty, but judging from Pimblett’s comments on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani on Monday, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Pimblett had this to say:

“I’m not that arsed to be fair, about the UFC in Liverpool. I’ve headlined shows there twice and I just fought there the other week. It’s great for UK MMA and great for Liverpool, but the show is for Darren [Till]. Darren can have his show, I’m good — I’ll have my own one in September.

I wouldn’t play second fiddle to anyone, never mind Darren. I know Darren, he’s sound, but I wouldn’t play second fiddle to anyone.”

“It’s his show. They’re going to Liverpool for Darren Till to be main event, so leave his show to him. I’m not fighting on anyone’s undercard.”

The Cage Warriors star went on to say he will be on holiday in Mexico on May 27th so would be unavailable anyway. Things, of course, can change, and I hope Pimblett does have a change in heart, and I don’t see being on Till’s undercard as being too big an issue, only a few weeks ago Pimblett opened the main card in Liverpool on a show headlined by Molly McCann.

It goes without saying the card will sell out with or without Pimblett, but at some point all being well, Pimblett will be in the UFC, and he will need introducing to the UFC fanbase, and for me there is no better way to do that, than on this show in front of his loyal and passionate legion of fans. Opening the main card would set the set the scene for the evening and I believe his UFC career, the perfect launch pad.

    “It’s his show. They’re going to Liverpool for Darren Till to be main event, so leave his show to him. I’m not fighting on anyone’s undercard.” – Paddy Pimblett………… Sorry but calling bullshit on that. I’m sure if the money was right and he was taken care of he’d happily be on the undercard for any event. He’ll be on undercards after this UFC and no doubt if he keeps progressing he’ll even be on UFC undercards. Posturing for position is all it is.

    Pimblett is a good fighter, he’s young and ambitious and obviously imo doesn’t want to be seen like he’s begging the ufc to fight. Personally given some of the cards that have been brought to our shores the likes of him and Chris fishgold should be given the opportunity to test themselves at a higher level

      Tom Heffernan Thinking the same there – decent fighter, but was found out a couple of fights ago but someone who wouldn’t make it in UFC

    Maybe Paddy just isn’t blinded by the concept of the UFC? I can imagine he does pretty well out of CWFC financially and let’s face it, main event or not, he smashed the Echo.

    What a self entitled little twat, put your fucking ego to the side and go make some money and get your name out there, because right now only the hardcores know you. Fighting on a UFC card brings attention and exposure that you just won’t get from anywhere else.

    He needs to humble himself and get on with it.

  • Daragh Lambert
    20/03/2018 at 12:17 pm

    He wasn’t even the main event in his last Cage Warriors fight yet thinks he’s bigger than Till?

    Interesting fighter but he’s either delussional or lying if he says he wouldn’t snatch at the chance to be on the Liverpool card.
