Imagine Michael Chandler (23-7 MMA, 2-2 UFC) a fan of Paddy Pimblett after you need to have a look at the U.K. big name dismantle and submit Jordan Leavitt at The O2 in London final Saturday.
Chandler, who had ringside tickets for the advance, was once blown away by the use of the atmosphere on struggle night and credited Pimblett (19-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) since the big name of the show.

“He’s great, man,” Chandler prompt newshounds at the back of the scenes at The O2 after UFC Struggle Night time 208 (h/t MMA Junkie). “Paddy and I have been in contact a little of bit. He’s a person who’s in that easiest imaginable – kind of that easiest imaginable position where I’m the man. I’m gonna be the champion proper right here throughout the next twelve months. He’s going to be nipping at my heels, entering the easiest 15, entering the easiest 10. On the other hand I don’t have an absence mindset in the case of other guys in my division, specifically after I see guys who are doing it the fitting method in my view.”
“He’s a marketable guy, he’s a happy guy, he’s a fun guy, he’s fun to take a look at, he’s fun on the microphone, he’s all the package,” Chandler added. “Other people can hate on him all they would love, on the other hand really they’re merely being haters. Paddy Pimblett is all the package, on the other hand can he put it together right through the octagon within the bells and continue to stick a success? We’ll see.”
Pimblett submitted Leavitt to extend his a success streak to 5-0, with 3 stoppage victories throughout the UFC. The 27-year-old feels he is destined for stardom and believes he’s going to in the future surpass Conor McGregor since the UFC’s largest cash cow.
