Paddy Pimblett pushed his UFC record to 4-0 last night (Sat., Dec. 10, 2022) at UFC 282 live on ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a unanimous decision win over Jared Gordon in the co-main event. However, not all were convinced that “Baddy” did enough to actually get the victory.
Gordon clipped Pimblett early with two clean hooks and a right hand. Pimblett’s hands were too low to defend much of anything, but he kept plodding forward with whipping leg kicks and power punches of his own. Both lightweights went back-and-forth in the second, but it seemed like Pimblett may be gaining some steam.
In Round 3, Gordon utilized his wrestling to pin “Baddy” along the cage. He didn’t land a ton of offense, but Gordon was in control and preventing any attacks from the Englishman. The judges eventually scored the fight and gave Pimblett the unanimous decision win.

Some reacted with surprise considering Gordon’s heavy punches in the first round and his control along the cage in the third. Pimblett believed he won the first two rounds fair and square, but you be the judge.
