Paddy Pimblett is mad at a former opponent and he's made a YouTube video calling him out.

On Sunday, Paddy Pimblett released a video from his hospital bed where he's recovering from ankle surgery following an injury that he suffered fighting Jared Gordon at UFC 282. That bout ended in a controversial unanimous decision for Pimblett, despite many of the fans, media, and fellow fighters scoring it for Gordon.

“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?’” Pimblett said. “They said, ‘You should’ve just sat on your stool and not have carried on fighting.’

In the video, Pimblett aims his frustrations at Gordon, who he believes won't stop talking about the fight.

“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.”

Pimblett also announced his desire to rematch Gordon in the future.

“Yeah, I want to punch his head in toward the end of the year,” Pimblett said. “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***.

Gordon will face Green on April 22, Pimblett will need six to 10 weeks to recover from surgery.
