Nicknamed “Paddy the Baddy”, or “Paddy the Bad Guy”, UFC lightweight Paddy Pimblett, who needs to 70.8kg to climb into the Octagon, decided to “kick the bucket” in the period when there’s no fight checked. in a video recorded for his YouTube channel, the fighter revealed how much he has been eating, and showed his current weight: an incredible 91.7kg, more than 20kg above his fighting weight. The rounder shape of the face and the larger belly than usual earned him a new nickname: “Paddy the Fatty”, or “Paddy the Fatty”.
I don’t have a fight scheduled, and I decided to take the opportunity to eat everything I want. I went to a restaurant and had a sandwich with spicy chicken, bacon, cheese, with hot sauce. it came with fries and sauce. We also ordered more french fries with chicken, snacks and also a pasta. Then I ate a 240g package of chocolate, plus some sweets, a can of soda. Later we went to another restaurant and I had ten chicken wings, garlic bread, rice, french fries and half a chicken. When I got home, I had two large donuts, two red velvet cookies, and a few drinks.
Faced with the astonishment of his teammates and gym mates, Pimblett joked that he was “a disgusting guy” before weighing himself and showing the scales at 91.7kg – a weight he could fight at light heavyweight, a division that is three places above yours, whose limit is 93.4kg for fights not valid for the belt.
I’m taking the opportunity to gain weight for now. Enjoying the foods I like. But I ate a little too much to be honest. Now I’m going to fix it – said the Englishman.
