“The Baddy” finally returns.
The Liverpudlian will once again fight on UK soil when he meets Jordan “The Monkey King” Leavitt (10-1) this July, at the O2 Arena in London.
Pimblett is on a 4 fight winning streak (2-0 UFC) and is rapidly becoming one of the UFC biggest stars.
Last time out we saw Paddy choke out a tough and gritty Rodrigo Vargas in the very first round. Which also saw him take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.
Leavitt was signed to the UFC after a successful performance on Dana White’s Contender Series and has since fought four times in the organisation. With a notable 22 second KO win over veteran Matt Wiman and Inverted Triangle submission win over Matt Sayles back in December 2021.
Notably, this will be Leavitt’s first professional fight outside of the U.S whilst ‘The Baddy’ boasts his 20th ‘Home’ fight on July 23.
Paddy will also have Next Generation MMA team mate Molly “Meatball” McCann (12-4) and fellow scouser Darren “The Gorilla” Till (18-4-1) on the card.
Can Paddy make it a 3-0 in the UFC or does Leavitt spoil the party? In just 8 weeks time we’ll find out.
