In the most recent video posted on Paddy Pimblett’s Youtube channel, he talks “paddy the fatty” and his upcoming bout against Jordan Leavitt.
During the video, he claims to not know a lot about Leavitt, saying “I don’t even know that much about him, to be honest.”
“He’s a black belt in jiu-jitsu, he’s three and one in the UFC. As I say, he’s a black belt, so that’s the best thing that he’s got going for him.”
Pimblett continues to make the statement, “I’ll knock him out on the feet, in the first five minutes more than likely.”
“I’m gonna finish him,” Pimblett continued.

Former Cage Warriors featherweight champion, Pimblett (18-3-0), has gone undefeated in the UFC having defeated Luigi Vendramini and Rodrigo Vargas. “The Monkey King” Leavitt (10-1-0), on the other hand, has gone 3-1 in his first four bouts under the UFC banner.
Of Pimblett’s 18 victories, 14 have come by way of stoppage. As for Leavitt, 7 of his 10 victories came by way of a finish.
The two lightweight finishers are set to meet inside the octagon on July 23rd at UFC Fight Night London.
