Paddy Pimblett Not Interested In Fighting At UFC Fight Night Liverpool


Former Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion Paddy Pimblett is arguably one of the biggest MMA prospects in the world right now.

Pimblett is also a native of Liverpool, England, but the fighter has no interest in competing this May at the UFC Fight Night Liverpool event.

“I’m on holiday May 27th. I’m in Mexico,” he said on The MMA Hour“I’m not that arsed to be fair, about the UFC in Liverpool. I’ve headlined shows there twice and I just fought there the other week. It’s great for UK MMA and great for Liverpool, but the show is for Darren [Till]. Darren can have his show, I’m good — I’ll have my own one in September.”

The show that Pimblett is referencing is the Cage Warriors return to the Echo Arena in September, although no opponent has been named at this time.

Despite not wanting to fight on the card, a confident Pimblett says UFC Fight Night Liverpool isn’t going to be as good without him on the card.

“You’ve seen the Cage Warriors shows when I’m on there and you’ve seen the one when I wasn’t on there — when Chris Fishgold beat Alex Jacobsen — and it just wasn’t the same. And [UFC Liverpool] won’t be,” said Pimblett.

UFC Fight Night Liverpool takes place on Sunday, May 27 from the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England with Darren Till and an opponent to be named headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
