Ilia Topuria made headlines a few months ago when he briefly initiated a brawl with Paddy Pimblett in a London hotel and it seems that there’s still no love lost between the two.
A new exchange of insults between the two began on Monday after a fan challenged Pimblett to accept a fight with Topuria.
“Everybody says they want to fight me bro, called clickbait!” Pimblett told the fan. “What do u think he chatted shit for an cause a scene in London? So ppl actually knew who he was 🤣nobody even knew him until I bounced a bottle of his head the lil bum, I see him all week with no cameras an he do nothing!”
Topuria caught wind of Pimblett’s comment and responded by branding him a “d*ck sucker” in Spanish.
“Pretty homophobic don’t ya think mate?,” Pimblett responded. “What if I actually did? What would u say then? Fucking weirdo u stop using my name for publicity u little bitch stick to being homophobic in ur own country.”
“I know that [you are a d*ck sucker], that’s why I said it,” Topuria replied. “There is nothing wrong with it, I have never tried it so I don’t know if it’s good or bad but you can keep on enjoy it paddy the baddy, remember I’m your daddy.”
Meanwhile, Topuria also put Movsar Evloev on blast after the rising Russian fighter extended his unbeaten record to a perfect 16-0 (including six wins in the UFC) with a unanimous decision win over Dan Ige in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 207.
“@MovsarUFC You fight shamefully!” Topuria wrote after the results. “Another decision without any attempt to finish it. On top of that you don’t know how to speak. You don’t have the balls to call me out! Now everyone can really see how you run away! shamefully.”
“Movsar and Ige both suck,” Topuria added later. “I hope to see something special that could motivate me to fight the winner.”
The outspoken Topuria is also currently undefeated in his 12-0 career to date and has registered KO victories in three of his four UFC wins to date against Damon Jackson, Ryan Hall and Jai Herbert.
