‘‘Everyone will be s**king my a*** again’’: Paddy Pimblett drops bombshell on his UFC return

Paddy Pimblett says he’s on the road to recovery after sustaining an ankle injury in his most recent UFC fight last December. In UFC 282, Pimblett emerged victorious in a controversial decision against Jared Gordon, bringing his octagon record to 4-0.

Paddy hurt his foot during the initial round of the bout. The injury’s severity turned out to be more severe than anticipated, and it was later revealed that he had suffered a grade 2 tear to the ligaments in his ankle.

Consequently, the UFC prospect underwent surgery in March. Following a successful operation, Paddy is gradually regaining his fitness, and his recovery seems to be progressing well.

Paddy Pimblett injury update?

Pimblett shared a video on his YouTube channel, documenting the countdown to his recent wedding and providing an update on his injury. He also answered a question about his expectations upon returning to the octagon, and the timeline appears to be more optimistic than initially anticipated.

“I can’t wait,” Paddy said on his YouTube channel. “I’m hoping to fight before the end of the year to be honest, kick some little fart’s head in. I was sh*t in my last fight, lad. It was a bad performance.

I’ve said it myself, you’re only as good as your last fight, and I looked sh*t. But when I come back, everyone will be sucking my arse again.”

During an interview with Sky Sports in April, Pimblett expressed doubts about his ability to fight this year due to the injury he sustained.

However, Paddy now holds a more positive outlook and believes he can make a comeback before the end of 2024, thanks to a more extensive procedure than usual.

Who will potentially fight Paddy Pimblett on his UFC return?

The British fighter is fueled by the desire to silence his critics from his previous bout against Jared Gordon and aims to have a rematch with the seasoned UFC veteran.

In a YouTube video posted after his March surgery, Paddy stated that Gordon’s performance was only commendable because Pimblett injured his ankle in the opening round. He expressed his intention to “run it back” with Gordon.

“People are like, ‘Oh, Jared Gordon did so well.’ He only done well because me ankle was f**ked. You stupid t**t, and he’s just being a bitter little girl, going on every interview site.

‘Oh, I won that fight, I won that fight.’ I want to punch his head in towards the end of the year. I am going to run it back.”
