What is Paddy Pimblett’s weight class in UFC 4?

Paddy Pimblett has been added to the UFC 4 roster via a new free game update at 4:00 p.m. Like in real life, Paddy Pimblett has been added as a UFC lightweight to the mixed martial arts game.

Three other fighters have also been introduced to the game’s roster as part of International Fight Week celebrations. Women’s flyweight Molly McCann, light heavyweight Paul Craig and heavyweight Tom Aspinall are the other new additions.

Since his debut with the UFC, “The Baddy” has enjoyed unprecedented popularity. The fighter is currently undefeated in his UFC run and holds two wins in the fight promotion, both by stoppage.

Pimblett’s first victory in Dana White’s promotion was a knockout win over Brazilian Luigi Vendramini at UFC Vegas 36. At UFC Fight Night 204 in London, Pimblett followed up his impressive debut with a submission in the first round of Rodrigo Vargas.

After fighting on a standard contract for his first two fights, “The Baddy” has reportedly signed a new contract with the UFC. The latest contract is expected to boost the Englishman’s purse significantly.

Paddy Pimbletts manager confirms he was on ‘F**king big money now’

In a recent interview with The MirrorPimblett’s manager, Graham Boylan, said the fighter was no longer on the standard UFC contract. Boylan said The Mirror that Pimblett is making a lot of money now:

“Everyone goes to the UFC under a standard contract. There is no difference in what you do, you have to go prove yourself. I can tell you categorically that this contract is over. C is gone, he [Paddy Pimblett] is on fucking big bucks now”

In an interaction with Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports, the Liverpudlian was asked how much he earned in his first two UFC fights. In response, “The Baddy” revealed that he won a measly $12,000 to show off and $12,000 to win. This revelation was shocking to many in the MMA community.

It’s worth noting, however, that Pimblett has earned around $74,000 in each of his two UFC outings, thanks to the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus he won both times.
