Paddy Pimblett (19-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) made good on his promise and defeated Jordan Leavitt (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) on the UFC undercard in London, England.
Pimblett quickly attacks with powerful punches, Leavitt keeps his cool and presses in the clinch. Leavitt takes down Paddy, who grabs his opponent’s neck and locks in a Guillotine Choke although Jordan gets out of position.
Pimblett closes the round with ground and pound.
Pimblett starts with powerful punches that take Leavitt to the floor, tries to finish him with volume of punches and then closes the Rear Naked Choke with which he finishes his opponent.
Pimblett sends message
“That’s not me. That was sh*t. Pardon my French, but I’m better than that,” Pimblett said before delivering a message of hope for an end to the stigma that men, in particular, can’t share their emotions without it being considered a weakness. “I’d rather you cry on my shoulder than go to your funeral.”
