Paddy Pimblett Admits To Have ‘Genuine Eating Disorder’
Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimbett has got the MMA fans talking about him ever since the English man made his debut inside the octagon.
The combat junkies were left in awe when Pimblett touched exactly 155 lbs in his last fight against Jordan Leavitt. Prior to the fight, Pimblett weighed close to 200 pounds but it didn’t take long for the Baddy to turn things around for himself as he entered the fight with the designated 155 weight.
The 27-year-old Pimblett was a recent guest on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast and weighed in at 206.6 pounds, more than 50 pounds over the lightweight limit. And during the conversation, the Liverpool native admitted to having a genuine eating disorder.
“I’ve had party days, you know what I mean, I’ve been bad then. I got into gambling a little and I was bad with that. I think now it’s moved on to food,” Pimblett told Steve-O’s Wild Ride.
“I genuinely think I’m a food addict. I think I’ve got a bit of an eating disorder because of MMA. The weight cuts, dieting, I genuinely think I have a bit of an eating disorder. People when they go eat with me they are visibly shocked at how much I can eat.”
Pimblett has had an excellent start to his UFC tenure with him being 3-0 inside the octagon.
The English man has finished all of his opponents via submission or knockout so far in the promotion. He is targeting a December comeback and is really pumped up for this challenge.
“No fight on the schedule but I got my eye on the Dec. 10 card,” Pimblett continued.
“It’s got me excited to be honest, I haven’t been excited in a long time. If you share the Octagon the same night as Jon Jones you’re gonna be excited.”
