Paddy Pimblett impressed Chael Sonnen with the ability to push the pace like the greats
In one of the videos on his Youtube channel, Chael Sonnen talks about Pimblett’s win at the last UFC London event, and the MMA legend drew an important conclusion from this win against Leavitt, which incidentally never ended in his professional career until Pimblett him submitted.
“I thought he was going to lose that fight” says sun “I thought Jordan Leavitt was a little tougher opponent than Paddy is ready for… [but] this paddy we saw over the weekend could be world champion… [he] showed his skills [in the fight] to pick up the pace, the big guys, everyone can pick up the pace, it’s a difficult thing to see as an audience, but the competitors know it and they can see it…” continues Sonnen.
What do you think of Sonnen’s conclusion about Pimblett? Do you think he’s right? Do you think Pimblett will be a UFC champion in the future? And who should Pimblett fight next? Pimblett has yet to break into the top 15 of the UFC lightweight rankings and after 3 spectacular wins via finishes the fights with ranked opponents would now make sense to all. But easy Jared Gordon is the last person to call “The rogue” for a fight based on spreading mental health awareness.
