Paddy Pimblett Fires Back At TJ Dillashaw Over Work Ethic Criticism

Yesterday we reported TJ Dillashaw’s claim that Paddy Pimblett would never become a UFC champion due to his work ethic, and ‘The Baddy’ has now fired back at him.

“Is this fella messin,” Pimblett wrote on Twitter. “@TJDillashaw used to sell tee shirts with his fat face on it saying “fat Tyler” on when he came out of camp🤣🤣🤣🤣

“Don’t forget ur own past u sausage😉 Cheating little juice head wud never have won a belt without them steroids u fucking mushroom 🤗👍🏻🤣.”

Dillashaw has since responded, claiming that he wasn’t trying to take a dig at him, while at the same time doubling down on his prediction that Pimblett would end up with Diabetes.

“Wasn’t even trying to be mean,” Dillashaw wrote. “@theufcbaddy getting all sensitive, must be a tasty subject. Drop the donuts and take the advice. The only difference of fat Tyler is that it was a joke lol.

“What’s not a joke is you getting diabetes. Let’s see how you look after 11 years in the UFC, good luck lasting that long.”

Pimblett isn’t the only fighter Dillashaw has been sounding off about recently.

He also branded Dominick Cruz, “A salty c***” after the former champ bemoaned the fact that Dillashaw could be in line for a bantamweight title shot not long after returning from a steroid suspension, and has also stated that another former rival, Cody Garbrandt, is “not the smartest human being inside the cage.”
