UFC star Paddy Pimblett challenges Mark Zuckerberg to MMA showdown

After defeating Rodrigo Vargas at UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs. Aspinall, Paddy Pimblett challenged meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to a fight, calling him a bully and claiming he was “banging his head in.”

Paddy Pimblett is one of the UFC’s biggest rising stars. Not only does he have an impressive professional record of 18-3, but he also has the gift of the mouth and is an impressive entertainer and performer to boot.

Ever since he burst onto the scene in September 2021, he’s been trying to trick Jake Paul into fighting him. He also called Logan Paul and boxing legend Mike Tyson, although he’s particularly keen on Jake.

After quickly taking down Rodrigo Vargas at UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs. Aspinall on March 19, he has a new target in his sights – Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, for allegedly shutting down his Instagram account.

Paddy Pimblett is having a hot spell at the UFC.

In a post-fight interview with Michael Bisping, Pimblett revealed what he’s up to next, saying, “I’ll probably rest and get a little fat. I did my LCL a couple of weeks ago but still came in here and quickly substituted the man.”

However, when he jumps back into the octagon, he is about to punch Mark Zuckerberg. “Who do I want to fight? Mark Zuckerberg! Boy I’m gonna smack your head in. I’m sick of you!”

“I’m sick of you shutting down my Instagram account when I’m just helping charities and people with mental health issues,” he added. “You are the greatest tyrant in the world!”

At the time of writing, Paddy’s Instagram account is currently active with more than 250,000 followers, but that won’t stop the platform from taking it down again.

The relevant part of the video starts at 1:57.

The London audience applauded him over the call and suggested it was something they would like to see. However, the chances of it happening are, well, slim, to put it lightly.

On the other hand, if Pimblett’s meteoric rise in popularity continues, he could be on a collision course with Jake Paul or Logan Paul, which could net him a massive paycheck — if they’re willing to bite.
