Renato Moicano Open To Paddy Pimblett’s TUF Coaches Suggestion

Paddy Pimblett brought up the possibility of fighting Renato Moicano again after watching his recent TKO win over Jalin Turner at UFC 300, and his suggestion that they also coach a season of The Ultimate Fighter has been met with a positive response from his rival.

“Renato, where was the callout?” Pimblett during his post-fight reaction to Moicano’s fight at the event. “Thought Moicano was going to mention me there, but props on the performance. That was a very, very good performance. Done well to survive the end of that first round and then come back out and finished him in the second. That was a quality performance by Moicano. Congratulations, lad. Top 10 for you.

“He is a funny guy. You never know, maybe me versus Moicano. That would be a very good season of The Ultimate Fighter. You never know. You could see that in the next few years.”

Moicano has since responded to Pimblett during an interview on the MMA Hour show.

“He said he wants to do maybe The Ultimate Fighter, Moicano against Paddy. I would not be against that,” Moicano said. “I think that would be very, very funny. So I’m not going to talk too much s*** about him.

“But if he wants the smoke, I’m going to make him easy f******* money, brother. I know you’re being nice. I know all that s***. But don’t forget, Moicano wants money. In God we trust. All the others, pay in cash motherf*******.”
