UFC lightweight Paddy Pimblett is an absolute unit right now.
Paddy the Baddy went on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast and was asked to weigh himself. The UFC lightweight who recently fought at 155 pounds a month ago currently weighs in in at 206.6 pounds.
Paddy went on to admits to Steve-O that he may have an eating disorder because of MMA.
I genuinely think I’m a food addict. I think I’ve got a bit of an eating disorder because of MMA. The weight cuts, dieting, I genuinely think I have a bit of an eating disorder. People when they go eat with me they are visibly shocked at how much I can eat.”
Pimblett believes he’s going to be on UFC’s December 10th card so he has plenty of time to shed the weight before his next fight.
UFC President Dana White admitted that Pimblett’s off-season weight gain is bad for him but says it’s up to the UFC star to figure it out.
Dana White won't tell Paddy Pimblett to get his weight under control, but warns the rising star what he's doing is "very bad."
"We have to be very specific when we plan fights for him, because he’s nowhere near close to weight."
