Paddy Pimblett Set to Conquer: Accepts Moicano’s Challenge

Pimblett vs. Moicano: A Clash of Titans in the UFC

At just 28, UFC sensation Paddy Pimblett remains undefeated within the premier MMA organization. The Liverpool native’s journey continued with a dominant performance against UFC veteran Tony Ferguson at UFC 296 last December, before which he triumphed over lightweight contender Jared Gordon by unanimous decision.

The challenge came swiftly from top-ranked Brazilian, Renato Moicano, following his unanimous decision victory over Drew Dobber at UFC Vegas 85. Pimblett didn’t hesitate to accept, setting the stage for a highly anticipated lightweight clash. Moicano’s confidence is sky-high, ready to face Pimblett either in Brazil or London, claiming, “He’s easy money.”


Currently on a two-fight winning streak, Moicano’s submission victory over Brad Ridell prior to Dobber showcases his versatility and threat in the division.

“UFC is protecting him, it’s like a game of chess. UFC can no longer protect him. If he wants to fight in Brazil (UFC 301), I’m ready. If he’s too scared to come to Brazil, I can fight in London. He’s easy money. I respect him, but I will crush him.”

“If he wants to fight, I’m ready. Just send the contract. If not, I’ll just continue climbing the rankings. I’m 34 years old, I don’t have time to wait. If I did well against Drew Dobber, imagine what I will do to Paddy Pimblett.”
