Paddy Pimblett may not have knocked Jordan Leavitt’s head off earlier today (Sat., July 23, 2022) at UFC London live on ESPN+ from inside O2 Arena in London, England, but “Baddy’s” second-round submission finish had social media buzzing.

’BIGI BOY’ BRAWL! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to its APEX venue in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., March 2, 2024, with a Heavyweight showdown between knockout artist and former kickboxing standout, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, welcoming undefeated Contender Series signee, Shamil Gaziev (11-0), to the Octagon proper. In UFC Vegas 87’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, undefeated Vitor Petrino (10-0) looks to keep his perfect record intact at the expense of the once highly-touted Tyson Pedro in a Light Heavyweight scrap.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Much like his other UFC appearances Pimblett had to overcome some early adversity before finding his chance to finish the fight. Leavitt’s grappling and wrestling attacks looked strong in the early going, but Pimblett patiently waited for the second round before launching his attack. A knee inside put Leavitt to the ground and allowed Pimblett to secure his submission finish, drop a quick teabag, and put the UFC London crowd in an absolute craze.

As expected, the mixed martial arts (MMA) community was on high alert and wasted little time offering their reaction to Pimblett’s third-straight UFC finish. Check out some of the feedback below from MMA’s finest:
