Ilia Topuria sends a message, literally and figuratively, to Paddy Pimblett with a knock back Jai Herbert at UFC London
Ilia Topuria proved he was a pretty dangerous guy, waging a fight with Jai Herbert at UFC London has seen his performance go from concerned to explosive.
Topuria looked ready to eat an L after being knocked out early in the first round by a headbutt from Herbert. Topuria looked out but somehow managed to stay in the fight and score Herbert’s kill.
In the second round, Topuria and Herbert swap bombs before Topuria lands with her right hand, clearing the button that left Herbert cold for the big win.
Topuria then used the time after her victory to send a message to Paddy Pimblett. Topuria attacked Pimblett earlier this week at the boxers’ hotel for comments Pimblett made earlier.
“Paddy Pimblett, win or lose, I want to fight you next and kick your** like last time. F*** you,” Topuria said in her post-match comment. “I want that blonde bitch.”
