Paddy Pimblett Next Fight: Potential opponent and date

On the back of his decisive victory over Tony Ferguson, fans are waiting to find out when we'll next see Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett in the Octagon.

After his duo of fights with Nate Diaz back in 2016, McGregor beat Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s first simultaneous two-weight champion.

McGregor’s MMA career went on hiatus when he stepped into the boxing ring for an exhibition with Floyd Mayweather before returning a year later for the biggest fight in UFC history against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The resounding defeat to Nurmagomedov saw McGregor take another break from the Octagon, beating Donald Cerrone 15 months later inside the first minute.

12 months later, McGregor would fight Dustin Poirier, losing in the second round, before the rematch that July marking the first time since 2016 that McGregor had fought twice in a year. McGregor lost the rematch – actually the third fight between the pair – owing to a broken leg sustained at the end of the first round.

Paddy Pimblett next fight opponent

Paddy Pimblett doesn't yet have a fight scheduled, but it's now been more than three months since his last fight and it shouldn't be too longer before an announcement is made.

Pimblett quickly rose to prominence with wins in his first two UFC fights before a controversial decision victory over Jordan Leavitt.

Pimblett then took on veteran Tony Ferguson, winning all three rounds to score a unanimous decision win, extending Ferguson's losing record to seven consecutive.

Owing to the nature of his last two wins - a controversial decision and a win against a fighter on his way out - it's not easy to determine Pimblett's true level, but he'll be eyeing someone in the top 15 sooner rather than later.

Paddy Pimblett next fight date

Since moving to the UFC, Pimblett fought four times in 15 months, but then went a full year between bouts, and without a fight currently scheduled, it's unclear when we'll next see The Baddy back in the Octagon.
