“I’m dead serious about it” Jamie Mullarkey showcases strong commitment on Paddy Pimblett call out following UFC 284 victory vs Francisco Prado

Jamie Mullarkey definitely made a statement by defeating Francisco Prado on UFC 284. Now the Australian has set his eyes on bigger opponents like Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett. The lightweight has 7 fights total in the UFC and is currently riding a 2-fight win streak. But will that be enough to land such a huge opponent?

He presented his case for the fight stating, “I would love to fight him. If he’s not booked, like I think it’s the fight to make. We’re both ranked around the same rankings, [it’ll] be a good test for me it’d be a good test for him, and I think that’s the fight to make. I really do believe I can stop him, I think I’ve got a higher fight IQ… and it would be a really exciting fight.“

He further added, “I’m dead serious about it you know. I’m not much of a ‘call guys out’ kind of guy anyway, but that was my moment just to be like alright, I just fought a guy on debut, I’ve had six fights in the company. I took the fight against a debut guy just so I could fight. Give me my shot at Paddy.”

Will Jamie Mullarkey actually get a fight against Paddy Pimblett?

Let’s consider Jamie’s record first. Among his 7 fights, he has managed to win 4 and lost 3. While he got KO/TKOed by Jalin Turner in the second round, he also beat Michael Johnson via split decision. Paddy, on the other hand, is still technically undefeated inside the UFC no matter how controversial the decision against Jared Gordon was.

Also, Mullarkey does not seem to have much star power outside of his own country. The ‘Baddy’ is considered to be a McGregor-level draw and his opponents probably need to bring something to the table at this point. Does this mean the Aussie stands no chance against Pimblet? We don’t claim anything like that.

Let’s see what happens at lightweight next!
