One of the UFC's newest signings Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett has called Khabib Nurmagomedov the new "Karen" of MMA — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Paddy Pimblett fires shots at Khabib Nurmagomedov
Paddy Pimblett has only officially been signed to the UFC for a few weeks but he is already getting his name out there by mentioning some of the big names in the sport.
Last week Pimblett said he would easily defeat Conor McGregor and just days ago he referred to the former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov as the new "Karen" of MMA.
This comes after Nurmagomedov was on Mike Tyson's podcast, Hotboxin', where he criticized Tyson for his smoking and also discredited Jose Aldo's achievements in MMA.
You can watch the episode of Hotboxin' with Nurmagomedov below.
Following the release of this episode, Pimblett had a few words to say about Nurmagomedov on Submission Radio.
Check out what Pimblett had to say below.
