    Delusional. Why? For someone to have such a high opinion of himself to be that happy with a win in his first UFC fight. An opponent picked to make him look decent.

    If you have Connors accent and say “I promise you,” until you’re blue in the face…you can be the “face of the UFC.” I still don’t see how people are going crazy over his performance… there was nothing special about it. He was out on his feet 1 minute into the fight. I guess he was just “letting himself get punched in the face,” as he claims he does purposefully. I will celebrate when he’s KOed stiff in his next fight

One of my favorite lads and I think he will be the greatest to ever do it. Scousers don't get knocked out!!! 🇬🇧👊🇬🇧👊🇬🇧🤜

    I think he's talking too much. He got a lot of wins from grappling, only to my eyes the only champions with a grapple base are much more powerful so as to be able to dominate opponents. The only Jits guy I can remember in the modern era and that was most successful was demian maia and he came up short at the top. And striking, I don't see Pimblett as nearly as good as the best strikers. I'm English so I hope I'm wrong but still.

    This guy is obviously very confident in himself. He’s making huge promises to everybody and adding a lot of weight on his shoulders in doing so. All’s it takes is one punch to knock someone out. If this happens to Paddy nobody will listen to him anymore. He’s gotta tone it down.
