Paddy Pimblett scores decisive win over Jared Gordon at UFC 282


Paddy Pimblett kept his hype train going with a unanimous decision victory over Jared Gordon at UFC 282.

The Baddy was set to lean on the judge’s scorecards for the first time in his UFC career in Las Vegas after earning three straight stoppages in MMA’s first promotion.

It was a tight first round that was likely decided by a late takedown from Gordon who was successful with his left hand for five minutes.

Pimblett kept it honest with repeated low kicks and also threw big punches at his opponent who he seemed well matched with on the feet.

The 27-year-old struggled to keep his opponent away in the second round as Gordon continued his wrestling attacks without necessarily making much progress.

Pimblett began finding the target with big punches late in the second round of a fight that was already proving to be the toughest of his brief UFC career.

The final frame was equally difficult to score as Gordon controlled him for the most part but was unable to mount an offense as he held Pimblett against the fence.

With a minute remaining, the Englishman found space, landed strikes and threatened submissions before heading to the scorecards for the first time in the UFC.

Fortunately, the judges all scored the fight 29-28 in his favor as they apparently preferred his aggressive approach to the fight more than Gordon’s control.

While most people thought the fight was very close, Pimblett thought he comfortably won and made that clear in his post-fight interview.

“It wasn’t close,” he told Joe Rogan.

“I won the first two races and then coasted in the third. I knew I had won the first two races easily.

“Jared is a tough mother *****. Hats off to Jared.

However, recently released UFC legend Nate Diaz disagreed with the result and took to social media to call out Pimblett, he tweeted, “Bruh? You lost this fight”
