Paddy Pimblett reacts to people criticizing the UFC

Most MMA fighters have questioned UFC as an organization and what they have to offer; many fighters had a lot of negative things to say, it mostly broke down to ‘unfair fighters pay’. Paddy Pimblett had the opposite to say about the organization and believes it’s a big thing to fight for the UFC.

As far as public exposure is concerned, it would be fair to say that no fighter gain it more than they do in the UFC. The organization has been successful in creating a very strong fan base and has never failed to put on entertaining events for the fans.

Recently on Severe MMA, Paddy Pimblett spoke about the UFC and its significance; he portrayed his admiration towards the organization. He believes the majority of the MMA fighters would choose UFC over other MMA organizations.

“Yeah, of course, it would have been a tougher decision,” Pimblett said as quoted by “I was looking at walking away at 4-1 because I wasn’t getting paid enough. I was gonna quit MMA when I was 18 because I wasn’t getting paid anywhere near enough.

I was getting paid like [$620] to fight, something stupid like that. It wasn’t enough". “I can understand a lot of fighters now that are going to PFL and are going to Bellator, but if you’ve got a dream that you want to be in the UFC, then I think 99 out of 100 MMA fighters, their dream is to be in the UFC, no one gets up in the morning and goes, ‘Ah, I want to fight for Bellator, mate.’ Or, ‘Ah, I want to fight for PFL.’ The only reason people go to PFL is to try and win the million dollars with easier fights”.

Paddy Pimblett should mostly likely make a return in 2023, and it will be very interesting to see who fights against next. (Image source: UFC / Twitter)
