Paddy Pimblett defeated Luigi Vendramini via first-round KO in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Till.. In the night’s co-main event, heavyweight prospect Tom Aspinall defeated Sergey Spivak by first-round TKO. Tom Aspinall, according to Daniel Cormier, could be a bigger star than Paddy Pimblett. According to DC, there are only a few lighter weight athletes who can attract attention, such as Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. Cormier believes that heavier fighters pique people’s interest more than smaller ones. Daniel Cormier recently told Ryan Clark on ESPN MMA:
“I kind of left the apex that day thinking about Tom Aspinall. I was thinking about Tom Aspinall. I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I’m a big guy that likes the big guy. Because guess what, the vast majority of people like the big guy. There’s very few people, there’s very few Khabibs, there’s very few Conor McGregors. That if Conor McGregor, Khabib and I walk into a campus, everybody is gonna be intrigued by those two small guys. Generally you stick Tom Aspinall and you put him and Paddy Pimblett walking around ESPN, the people in that place are gonna turn around and look at Tom Aspinall and go, ‘Wow, who’s that?’ Because he is a heavyweight. And what he did to Sergey Spivak was insane.”
Paddy Pimblett is expected to be the UFC’s next big star
Paddy Pimblett was a lightweight champion at the feeder promotion C This, combined with his intriguing persona, has prompted many to compare him to Conor McGregor, the UFC’s biggest star. For a variety of reasons, it may be premature to compare Paddy Pimblett to Conor McGregor.
