‘I’ll put him on his back’ – Paddy Pimblett makes bold prediction for ‘dream fight’ against Conor McGregor

Paddy Pimblett is confident he’d win his ‘dream fight’ against Conor McGregor.

‘Notorious’ is the biggest star in MMA history, and one of the most successful fighters of all time after becoming the first UFC dual-weight champion in 2016.

Meanwhile, the jury is still out for Pimblett, who has failed to convince a portion of fans he has world-class potential despite winning five consecutive fights since joining the UFC in 2021.

‘The Baddy’ recently revealed that McGregor is the man he wants to face the most, and the Liverpool-mad scouser says Anfield would be the ideal venue.

When asked who his dream fight would be during an appearance on the Disruptors podcast, Pimblett replied: “Someone in Anfield.

“A dream fight, probably Conor because you’ll get paid more than anyone else fighting him. So, I would probably have to say him.”

McGregor, 35, is expected to return to the Octagon against Michael Chandler later this year before going in search of a third UFC championship belt.

In contrast, Pimblett is still trying to work his way into the lightweight top 15.

A fight between the two seems unlikely, but the 29-year-old said stranger things have happened as he predicted he will win by submission if they ever fight.

Pimblett added: “Anything can happen.”

“Obviously, he’s a sniper. I would put him on his back and submit him.

“They might [want that fight], we’ll see in the future. You never know.”

Pimblett hasn’t fought since dropping and outpointing former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in his biggest fight to date at UFC 296 last December.

The Englishman doesn’t have a fight booked as he is currently taking some time out with his wife, Laura, who is due to give birth to twin girls in May.

Pimblett will enjoy becoming a father for the first time before booking his next UFC fight, which will surely see him face a ranked opponent and officially begin his lightweight title charge.
