Paddy Pimblett And Molly McCann Partied With Stormzy Backstage And It Was Pure Carnage

Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann partied with none other than Stormzy backstage following their victories at UFC London.

And, as you can probably imagine, their celebrations were brilliant.

At one point, McCann - who admitted to smashing half a bottle of whiskey - tried to wrestle the UK rapper and effortlessly picked him up.


The Liverpool duo are quickly becoming two of the most likeable and entertaining fighters on the UFC roster.

Paddy 'The Baddy' has got all the hallmarks of the UFC's next global megastar – making light work of his opponents inside the octagon and having an even bigger presence outside of it.

As for knockout artist McCann, AKA 'Meatball', she's on an upward trajectory that could see fight for the title anytime soon.

Both legends are already a huge draw, so it was no surprise to see London's sold out o2 Arena crawling with celebs desperate to catch a glimpse of the UK's hottest prospects.


One of those big-name stars in attendance was Stormzy and the rapper eventually found himself in the dressing rooms to celebrate with Pimblett and McCann.

In a video posted by the UFC, McCann creeps up behind Stormzy and picks him up.

"Woah, oh my days," he yells as he's tipped sideways.


The whole room then burst in laughter when Stormzy finally returned back to earth.

“Why you gotta do me like that, man? I don’t want none of this. I don’t want no problems,” Stormzy joked.


After her knockout win over Hannah Goldy, there was nothing standing in the way of 'Meatball' a well-deserved 'bevvy'.

She even bumped into former Bellator champion Michael Chandler and recently-retired ex-UFC champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk on her way backstage, sharing a shot of whiskey with the two MMA stars.

But by the time her joint post-fight press conference with Pimblett rolled around, McCann admitted she had probably indulged in a few too much celebratory alcohol.


That said, she remained in fine form.

“Paddy wanted the German doner. Molly wanted the Howler Head [whiskey],” McCann said.

“I’ve had half a bottle of whiskey. How do you like me now?

“I’ve drank as much as or more than last time. I know I’m bladdered”.
