Paddy Pimblett is one of the rising stars in the sports with an unbeaten record in UFC lightweight division.

Paddy Pimblett has received backlash from fans and fighters for gaining insane weight when he is not in training camp.

And for his upcoming fight against Jared Gordon at UFC 282, Pimblett will have to lose around 50 lbs.

This is arguably the toughest tests for Paddy Pimblett in UFC so far as Jared Gordon has a ton of experience in UFC with a MMA record of 19-5.

UFC 282 takes place on December 10th, 2022 at T-Mobile arena, Las Vegas. This will be Pimblett's first UFC fight in the US.
