Pimblett is now battling another up-and-coming prospect Jordan Leavitt. Leavitt is 10-1 in his entire MMA career with 7 finishes. Leavitt made his big break in the UFC via the 2020 Dana White Contender Series. So far, Leavitt is 4-1 in the UFC. Both Pimblett and Leavitt are grappling specialists, but Pimblett has shown he also has tough hands when the struggle arises, and that is what the latter is to strive for.
