UFC newcomer Paddy Pimblett has revealed his ambitions to step into the octagon with Conor McGregor.
Pimblett is the new kid on the block in the UFC but has already garnered quite the following.
The 27-year-old’s infectious energy has made him an immediate fan-favourite, which could do him a favour when it comes to convincing Dana White to award him with the biggest fights.
At this point in time, it’s naive to be mentioning Pimblett in the same conversation as the likes of Conor McGregor, but he hasn’t shied away from stating his intentions to fight the Irishman.
Speaking to ESPN, he revealed his belief that McGregor vs Pimblett is the fight that the fans want to see.
“I know for a fact if I fought him it would be the most box offices sold ever. Without a shadow of a doubt.”
