Paddy Pimblett: "My goal is to go out and stop Tony Ferguson in the first round"

Paddy Pimblett is ready to make an impact against Tony Ferguson at UFC 296. Pimblett will face Ferguson on Dec. 16 in his first fight in a year. It’s a crucial fight for both of them, as Pimblett has a lot of hype while Ferguson is on a seven-fight losing streak. Pimblett knows he has to finish ‘El Cucuy’ and make a statement to show he deserves a top-15 spot.

“I have to stay focused, especially after my last performance,” Paddy Pimblett told The Schmo. “My only goal right now is to go out and stop Tony Ferguson in the first round, you know what I mean. Make a statement, let everyone know what they missed out on, and then I’ll move on to ranked opponents in the new year.”

Paddy Pimblett is not only confident of making a statement against Tony Ferguson, but he’s also calling this The Baddy 2.0. Pimblett thinks the time off has been beneficial for him and he’s sure he will impress at UFC 296.

“As I said, I have something to prove, it’s been a long time since I’ve been in the cage. When I fight, it will be over a year since I’ve been in the cage. The training I’ve done to improve and I’m just a different fighter. It’s going to be The Baddy 2.0, a new legendary fighter is going to emerge,” Pimblett said.

Paddy Pimblett has a 20-3 record going into his UFC 296 fight against Tony Ferguson. He’s undefeated in the UFC with a 4-0 record and coming off a disputed decision win over Jared Gordon last December. Before that, he defeated Jordan Leavitt by submission, Kazula Vargas by submission, and Luigi Vendramini by KO
