Paddy Pimblett is training for his return to the Octagon, but he needs a fight.
“I’m planning on fighting Dec. 10…UFC 282,” said Pimblett.
“I’m planning on fighting on that Dec. 10 [card]. I’m just waiting for an opponent, lad. I’m just waiting for an opponent to step up and sign the dotted line. Everyone talks about ‘The Baddy’. Everyone talks about fighting me. But when the contract is in front of them, they’re not as confident.”
Since Pimblett’s introduction to the promotion, he has attracted the attention of many of the other fighters there, and they have been calling him out frequently. However, the call-outs haven’t resulted in a signed contract, thus the former Cage Warriors champion continues to wait for his next assignment.
“I’m the star of the show,” said Pimblett.
“I don’t need to talk about anybody.”
The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host UFC 282 on Saturday, December 10.
