However, Pimblett himself did not think it was a close fight at all. He said: “No it wasn’t, it wasn’t close. I won the first two rounds, and I coasted in the third.
“I knew I was two rounds up, so I didn’t want to do nothing dangerous and risk losing the fight. I knew for a fact I won the first two rounds pretty easily.”
The fighter from Liverpool also revealed that he suffered a slight injury during the fight.
“I’m not going to lie, I hurt my right foot in the first round. One of the first kicks I threw my right foot is in a bit of pain, I’m going to have to get that X-rayed,” Pimblett added.
After his latest victory, Pimblett remains undefeated since making his UFC debut in September 2021.
