Paddy Pimblett stuns Dana White with his performance at UFC London

Paddy Pimblett delivered as promised and blew the O2 arena off the roof at UFC London and UFC Boss Dana White couldn’t be more impressed.

Dana White didn’t want to get on the Paddy Pimblett ride that led to the spectacular UFC event in London, but after the fight Dana admits he was wrong. Paddy The Baddy took on Kazula Vargas in the main card and pulled off a stunning first-round submission win.

The arena was absolutely throbbing as Pimblett went insane after his ecstatic victory. Paddy also jumped out of the cage and ran to speak to the UFC President. In the UFC Fight Night 204 press conference, White spoke about Pimblett’s amazing performance. “This week I got tired of hearing ‘wait till you see his strike,’ and this and that.” Dana said speaking to the media after the fight.

Ahead of the fight, UK Paddy fans have been playing up Paddy’s walkout and how electrifying he usually is. However, White wasn’t really concerned about that unless the fighter put on a show in the octagon. The boss was then overwhelmed when he saw the O2 Arena’s reaction to Baddy’s strike.

“I thought, ‘I need to see him fight, he needs to win.’ But he did, and he did it spectacularly. And when he was in trouble, he came back and turned the fight around and won.” White said in the post-fight press conference. Dana also revealed some interesting stats on how well Paddy is being accepted around the world.

“I’ll give you a good example. I posted the Bullys on my Instagram. The Aspinall-Alexander Volkov fight had 120,000 views and Paddy’s face-off 1.3 million. All the talk about his walk-in and all that shit… this kid is real. He’s been through a lot of hype and he’s shown everyone that he’s the one.” ended Dana.

Paddy has now secured two first-round finishes in the UFC. The fighter is only 2-0 up in the new promotion and is already one of the biggest stars. The Baddy is garnering an extraordinary following and drawing some serious comparisons to Conor McGregor.
