Paddy Pimblett v Jared Gordon UFC 282 Betting Tips & Predictions

Paddy Pimblett might not be seen as the guy to main event UFC events yet but trust me those opportunities are just around the corner.

With Conor McGregor away from the Octagon for now, the place for a brash, overconfident and loud fighter has been taken by Paddy The Baddy.

The Liverpudlian loves to talk and eat, but he backs it up in the Octagon, and it won’t be long until his name is up in lights in Las Vegas.

Pimblett has a professional fighting record of 22 fights, 19 wins and just three defeats. None of those defeats have occurred since he joined the UFC.

He has fought three times in the UFC, with all the victories coming before the allotted time has run out. He defeated Luigi Vendramini on his debut with a first-round knockout.

Since then, he has won two fights by submission against Rodrigo Vargas and Jordan Leavitt.

He will face Jared Gordon at UFC 282 in what could be his toughest fight. Gordon has more defeats on his professional record, but he is still a dangerous fighter.

The American has a pro record of 24 fights, 19 wins and four defeats. Gordon has the tendency to take the fights the distance, but I am not sure that will happen against Pimblett.

Paddy the Baddy will want to please the fans and get a statement victory. He is capable of knocking his opponents out, but I am backing him to win this by submission.
