UFC star Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett has accused Logan Paul of “chasing” him over a fight after the social media phenomenon previously accused him of the same thing.
After dabbling in the world of boxing, Logan Paul wasn’t shy about letting everyone know he was interested in going back to his roots and training in mixed martial arts.
The imPaulsive podcast host has a background in amateur wrestling and has been candid about a fight day in the UFC. He’s even gotten positive noises from Dana White about the possibility of this happening.
In fact, Logan even picked his dream opponent – Liverpool’s own Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett. However, the Scouser doesn’t hit when it comes to repelling Logan’s call-outs.
Paddy Pimblett hits back at Logan Paul’s UFC call-up
Ahead of UFC Fight Night on July 23 in London, Pimblett was quizzed about his ongoing feud with Logan and being called out by the YouTube star.
“I just start giggling, it made my night,” said the Scouse MMA star. “A few months ago he texted me calling me a clout hunter and who is the clout hunter now son? Who is chasing whom?”
‘The Baddy’ also raised the possibility of the pair competing in the cage, which Logan has suggested. “Everyone knows what I would do to him, for example, he fought in high school. I have a Division One wrestler from the US. He comes in and wrestles me, I wrestle better people. He wouldn’t be able to bring me down. I would put him on his back.”
While not the most well-known forward in the UFC, Pimblett also assisted in the stand-up game. “I can’t wait to elbow him in the face,” he concluded.
While there have been many interested in seeing the pair fight, it’s unlikely to happen any time soon — if ever. UFC President Dana White admitted he’s not opposed to having Logan in MMA promotion, but it’s something he doesn’t consider when fighting fights.
As with most things in Logan’s fighting career, it remains to be seen if anything will come of it.
