Paddy Pimblett responds to ‘cheating little juice head’ T.J. Dillashaw’s comments about his weight


Paddy Pimblett thinks T.J. Dillashaw should look in the mirror before criticizing his weight.

The U.K. UFC star on Wednesday responded to Dillashaw’s recent comments about his off-season behavior, calling attention to the ex-champ’s history with weight and performance-enhancing drugs.

Pimblett described Dillashaw as a “cheating little head” who “would never have won a belt with them steroids.” He added that “u [sic]f ****** mushrooms .”

Dillashaw was a true a shirt poking fun on his off-season weight. He criticized Pimblett’s weight gain and said that the UFC featherweight “just loves diabetes” which is threatening his health.

” They can help him promote himself and make good things happen, and he does have some potential to grow. But if he doesn’t keep the same hard work ethic that he had now, he won’t be a champion,” Dillashaw stated on “The Schaub Show .”

“You can’t have that down time like that. You can’t get that fat. You can’t get out of shape. It just kind of proves the dedication to what you need to do. And no, I’m not trying to pound on him or anything, but that’s something I think he’s going to have to figure out with age, right? He’s young. … It’s a full-time job, bro. It’s not enough to want to fight .”

Pimblett, 27, is scheduled to return to the octagon on July 23 against Jordan Leavitt at UFC London, his second consecutive fight on home soil after a submission win over Rodrigo Vargas in March.

Dillashaw, 36, could be next in line for a bantamweight title shot against champ Aljamain Sterling, who called him out following a rematch win over Petr Yan at UFC 273.
