Paddy Pimblett and Ilia Topuria get into altercation ahead of UFC London

Paddy Pimblett and Ilia Topuria butted heads today at the fighter hotel ahead of the UFC: London card this Saturday.   Video above.

The two previously had beef after “The Baddy” Pimblett made a few derogatory remarks on Twitter with Georgian fighters.

After crossing paths today, Topuria attacked Pimblett for his remarks on Georgians.

He tweeted the altercation on Twitter stating “this is what happens when you disrespect me and my country!”



Pimblett also posted the video with his own take on the altercation, calling Topuria a “p***y” and stating “Imagine trying to jump someone on their own with 5 of your boys & you dont land a single shot.”

Come Saturday, Topuria (11-0) will face off with Jai Herbert while Pimblett (17-3) is set to face Rodrigo Vargas.

If both come out of UFC: London victorious, this is just the storyline the UFC needs to set these two up against one another.
