After playing five rounds with current UFC star Julian Erosa, Pimblett stood in the middle of the cage answering questions for the first time as the defending champion. He emerged from the fight looking relatively unharmed, but visibly and audibly gassed.
Each response was geared toward his diet and weight reduction, and immediately after making the room laugh by calling himself fat, he had them gag as the whole arena was treated to puke in mid-response.
After experiencing most people’s greatest fear, Pimblett continued unabashedly. Was “The Baddy” going to let some vomit stop him from defending his first title defense? No chance.
“The point is, I have my arm up; I don’t care if I’m sick in the cage, ”Pimblett said.
