Paddy Pimblett passed his biggest test yet.
The UFC lightweight sensation nearly set off a riot inside the O2 Arena at UFC London with his first-round rear-naked choke submission of Kazula Vargas on Saturday’s main card. Pimblett once again overcame his early difficulties to seal the deal. This was followed by a loud celebration for his English compatriots.
See below how UFC pros responded to Pimblett’s second UFC win.
Paddy is the reason that the UFC lost Conor’s number. #UFCLondon

I think Topuria or Frevola would be a great match up, if that doesn’t happen. https://t.co/UxrvU2GJ5e
