Like many others, UFC Lightweight contender Matt Frevola had some harsh words for Paddy Pimblett following his recent controversial win at UFC 282 over Jared Gordon.

He needs to be humbled. He barely beat Jared Gordon and acted like his sh*t didn’t stink. He needs some humble pie, and I’m gonna give it to him.

Although he wasn’t kind, Frevola most certainly wasn’t dismissive of Paddy’s abilities. He gave credit where credit was due and acknowledged the matchup for what it is.

He’s a f***ing well rounded martial artist. He was a double champ in cage warriors. I learned pretty quickly that you can’t underestimate anyone in this game.

Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett

His 4-0 start in the UFC began with three finishes. Despite facing adversity in all 3, things were looking good for the Scouse prospect. The overwhelming support drowned out the doubters until his last fight, where he defeated Jared Gordon by a unanimous decision at UFC 282 in what is considered the biggest robbery of 2022.

Paddy lost many fans with his post-fight behavior, refusing to admit that the fight was close, let alone that he may have lost.

Frevola has been looking for the Pimblett fight for some time, and given the circumstances regarding both of their last fights, it may be the time for it to happen.
