UFC star Paddy Pimblett (20-3) will continue to sit on the sidelines following an injury he sustained while competing against Jared Gordon at UFC 282 in December.
‘The Baddy’ injured his ankle in the controversial contest that saw him get his hand raised with a unanimous decision nod from the judges.
Pimblett limped out of the cage in pain due to his ankle injury, something he suspects happened when Gordon threw his first leg kick in the fight.
In a recent VLOG posted on the fighter’s YouTube channel, Pimblett has the injured ankle checked out by a physician.
“Looks like you have got a small amount of cartilage lost in this bit, and that’s exactly where you’re sore,” Pimblett’s doctor said after examining him. “The other thing you’ve got is all this white stuff around here. That’s all fluid, so that’s what all the swelling is. Now when we look at your ligaments that joins from your fibula, you probably got what we call a Grade 2 injury to that.”
Pimblett, a former Cage Warriors champion, is currently undefeated inside the UFC octagon with four wins under his belt. The Liverpool, England native was hoping to compete on the UFC’s next card in London, UFC 286, but unfortunately will not be fighting at the event.
