Paddy Pimblett reveals the celebrity he most wants to fight and who he'd team up with for it

Paddy Pimblett is set to take on Tony Ferguson this weekend

UFC star Paddy Pimblett has revealed which celebrity he would like to fight the most.

The 28-year-old Englishman is set to take on American Tony Ferguson during UFC 296 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend.

So far, Pimblett has been involved in 23 bouts, winning 20 and losing three.

Ahead of his bout against Ferguson, the Liverpool-born fighter was asked multiple questions during a Q&A with British GQ.

One of the questions asked was: “If you could fight any celebrity, which one would you choose.”

Pimblett replied: “If I could choose any celebrity to fight, me and Elon [Musk] are beating Mark Zuckerberg up, aren’t we?

“Know what I’m sayin’. I’ll be there in Elon’s corner, so we can muff the Zuck.”

Ahead of the bout this weekend, Pimblett was in fine form as he took aim at Ferguson during the press conference.

He said: “I can’t believe you’ve actually got a suit on, lad. Every other day you are like an eight-year-old who has dressed himself for the first time. You look like a f****** idiot!

“Put the mic down, with your s**** watch on. Did you get that watch out of a Kinder Egg? You f****** bum!”


However, Ferguson is confident that he can get the job done when the pair meet inside the octagon on Saturday night in the United States.

The American said: “It's going to go the way I want. I’ve already visualized it, I've trained my ass off, I don't see this kid beating me.

“He's worried about me blocking him on Instagram, sensitive little b******. Wait until you get cut, see your own blood, you're gonna run out of the cage back to mummy.”

Apart from Pimblett, fellow British UFC star Leon Edwards will be headlining the event as he takes on Colby Covington.
