Paddy Pimblett has just had surgery on an ankle injury he suffered during a controversial decision win over Jared Gordon back in December and he’s now called for a rematch while still recovering in his hospital bed.
“Yeah, I want to punch his head in toward the end of the year,” Pimblett said on his YouTube channel. “I am going to run it back. I hope he beats Bobby Green, because I’ll snap his arm for him in a round. Had a boxing match with him and I still won, because you’re s***.
“I hope he watched this. You’re f****** dog s***. At my worst, you couldn’t beat me at your best. Injured, everything going wrong, and you couldn’t beat me on my worst day, and I beat you on your best, because you’re a little bum.”
Pimblett also said that doctor’s were left stunned when he told them he’d suffered his ankle injury in the first minute of the fight, but continued on for another 14 minutes in order to get the win.
“When I told [doctors] it happened in the first round of a fight, within the first minute, and they said, ‘Oh, did you fight finish there,’ and I was like, ‘No, I’d done another two and a half rounds,’ they went, ‘What?’ They said, ‘You should’ve just sat on your stool and not have carried on fighting.’
“I said, ‘Are you mad? You think I’m some p****?’ People are like, ‘Oh, Jared Gordon did so well.’ He only done well because me ankle was f*****. You stupid t***. And he’s just being a bitter little girl, going on every interview site, ‘Oh, I won that fight, I won that fight.’ Well lad, Joe Solecki beat you [in 2021] but you got a split decision, so shut your mouth.”
Gordon was far from the only person that believed he’d done enough to win that fight though, with Pimblett having previously admitted that he’d been left frustrated by the fact the likes of Nate Diaz, Joe Rogan and many others had also stated that they didn’t think his unanimous decision win was justified.
Pimblett had previously announced that he won’t be able to compete again until near the end of the year due to his ankle injury, and since a lot could happen between now and then it remains to be seen if ‘The Baddy’ will have the opportunity to prove that he can fight his way to a convincing win over Gordon in a rematch.
