Paddy Pimblett on Why Ilia Topuria Avoids Max Holloway

✔ “He doesn’t want to take the fight against Max”

Paddy Pimblett, the 29-year-old UFC star, is set to make his much-anticipated return to the octagon at UFC 304 in Manchester, England. The Englishman will face top-ranked lightweight Bobby Green in the main card. Pimblett’s last appearance saw him dominate UFC veteran Tony Ferguson at UFC 296.

Earlier this week, Pimblett criticized current UFC featherweight champion Ilia Topuria, accusing the Spaniard of being afraid to accept a fight against UFC star and BMF champion Max Holloway.

“I think like everyone else, that Max will win. Hand sanitizer boy (Topuria) is scared to take the fight, he doesn’t want to take the fight against Max because he knows what will happen. He fought Volkanovski at the perfect time, he had been knocked out ten weeks earlier. He was lucky there, to be honest,” Pimblett said.
