Paddy Pimblett Fires Back at Diego Sanchez: ‘You’re the Laughing Stock of MMA’

Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett has taken no time to issue a fiery response to Diego Sanchez after the former UFC fighter dubbed him “a clown” on social media.

The exchange took place on Instagram after Sanchez commented on Paddy’s post with a clown emoji. It didn’t take long for “The Baddy” to reply.

Paddy Pimblett Responds to Diego Sanchez

“Diego Sanchez, lad are you really trying to call me a clown?! Go and get brainwashed by that Fabia dude again like he’s your cult leader you dumb mother f*cker. You’re the laughing stock of this whole sport! Ever talk shit about me again you f*cking has been – I slap your ass up.” – Replied Paddy to Sanchez’s close emoji.

Paddy Pimblett made his UFC debut in September 2021, when he made all the headlines after his first-round TKO victory over Luigi Vendramini. The former Cage Warriors champion gained hundreds of new fans and picked up the 50k bonus for the performance of the night.

There have been many rumours as to who he will fight next. A fight with “Cowboy” Cerrone has been rumoured, as well as Paddy suggesting a fight with Jared Gordon could be next, but nothing has been made official by the UFC as of yet.

On the other hand, a former UFC title challenger, Sanchez, will make his Eagle FC debut in the new 165-pound division in March against Kevin Lee.

“The Nightmare” had not fought since UFC 253 when he lost by unanimous decision to Jake Matthews and is now 3-2 in his last five fights.
