MJF Calls Out Paddy Pimblett Whilst In Attendance At UFC 282
Fresh off his AEW World Heavyweight Championship win at Full Gear 2022, MJF has made headlines once again for his continued insults surrounding UFC Breakout Star of 2022 Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett.
Whilst live in attendance at the highly anticipated UFC 282 event MJF would take to the camera to state that he ‘couldn’t be more excited’ to see Liverpool’s own Paddy Pimblett get “knocked the f*ck out” at the hands of New York’s own Jared Gordon.
MJF and Paddy Pimblett had previously gotten into a heated exchange on Instagram after ‘The Salt of the Earth’ mocked the intensity of UFC stating that it was nothing compared to pro-wrestling.
During the exchange Pimblett would question MJF’s ability to pass the UFC drug test before offering to fight him when AEW comes to Craven Cottage in the coming years.
MJF would fire back calling the UFC star a ‘dollar store Conor McGregor’ an insult often waged towards the 27-year-old due to his out of the octagon antics and McGregor-esque sense of humour.
‘The Baddy’ would win the UFC 282 semi-main event in controversial fashion after being awarded a decision victory that many fans and experts alike would call into question arguing that Jared Gordon had the better of the Scouser on multiple occasions.
The AEW World Champion would take to Twitter once again to call out the decision before calling out Paddy for dodging him at UFC 282 “like a b*tch” and adding that his post fight comments show that he has “zero class.”
When shown on camera during the event MJF would take the opportunity to flip off the UFC audience much to the displeasure of the fans in attendance.
