Paddy Pimblett’s weight reduction is so incredible that it has even caught the attention of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Paulo Costa.
It is now common knowledge that Pimblett inflates to a significant weight during his spare time. In between fights, the rising lightweight prospect eats just about what he wants and looks like a completely different person when not in camp. Pimblett’s weight fluctuation is so insane that fight fans are wondering if he’ll ever lose the extra fat. Like the true pro, “The Baddy” never struggles to lose weight and is walked around with a six-pack during fight week.
Pimblett again demonstrated his incredible weight-saving skills during official weigh-ins for UFC London on Friday. The 27-year-old stepped on the scales without a hitch and officiated his most important card fight with Jordan Leavitt. Afterward, “Baddy” lashed out at fans for “fat shaming” and even scolded the camera. Check it out HERE.
Hours after the official UFC London weigh-in, Costa reached out to Pimblett via Twitter to show his support for the Englishman’s superior ability to lose weight. Costa has struggled to hit the 185lb mark of late and felt compelled to pay his respects.
“The man, the hero made it,” Costa wrote. ‘I also follow my diet plan. Master of the weight.”
“You’ve got this Paulo big man 185 coming in and I should be there to support my Brazilian brother,” Pimblett replied.
UFC London will go live on ESPN+ tomorrow afternoon (Sat. July 23, 2022) from the O2 Arena in London, England. It will be a main event clash between heavyweight contenders Curtis Blaydes and Tom Aspinall, but Pimblett’s lightweight matchup with Leavitt is one of the biggest attractions on the map.
