Paddy Pimblett's does not believe he has Dana White privilege

After a controversial victory against Jared Gordon, the MMA world heavily criticized Paddy Pimblett and the judges that night, as most thought it was an unfair decision to declare Paddy Pimblett as the winner. The only way to settle the confusion is a rematch between the two fighters, Jared Gordon is ready for it, and it will be interesting to see the UFC schedule it at some point in the future.

Paddy's return is much awaited; it will be very interesting to see who he fights next; it could be potentially fighting against Brad Riddell or Jared Gordon again.

Paddy Pimblett speaks on having the upper hand

Paddy Pimblett refuses to believe that he lost against Jared Gordon, and recently in an interview with Bleacher Report, he explained why he thinks he won and says Dana White has no impact on the judges when they make a decision.

"I thought I won two rounds to one, and I watched the fight back, and I thought I won two rounds to one," Pimblett said as quoted by bloodyelbow.com. "I'll be honest, it was a lot closer than I thought it was. I never dominated, but I think the only clear round in the whole fight is the second, and that's for me.

The third round, he just holds me. He doesn't really do nothing". Pimblett further added. "People try to say, 'Oh, it's because he's Dana's boy, how am I Dana's boy? He came on my podcast. I'm not his boy. I'm just a fighter on his roster.

People say he influences judges. He can't". A rematch is much needed to clear things up, and Paddy Pimblett is ready for it – The UFC will schedule this matchup in the distant future. Paddy Pimblett has a professional record of 20-3; if he continues to extend his winning streak, he will soon fight against the top contenders in the lightweight division. (Photo Credit: Sean M.
