Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett has taken the UFC by storm, quickly gaining the love of fans all around the world as he documents his life on his YouTube channel.
His charismatic character and exciting fighting style, likely combined with the curiosity of fans unfamiliar with a Liverpudlian accent and manner, made him a real fan favourite.
He has intrigued his fans with videos of his brutal weight-cutting ahead of his home country fight at UFC London last month.
Following his spectacular victory against Rodrigo Vargas, he has now shocked his fans with quite the opposite of weight-cutting.
He uploaded another video, titled fittingly “Paddy The Fatty Is BACK” where he goes on a junk-food binge as he consumes up to an incredible 11,000 calories.
He previously said that he would rather be “fat and happy” than restrict himself to compete.
Paddy weighed in for his fight at 155lbs, a number that has been left far behind as he now weighs a whopping 202lbs and pictures of his weight gain since UFC London have flooded social media.

Pimblett won a controversial fight against Jared Gordon in the early hours of Sunday morning, thanks to a judges’ decision.
Many felt as though the fight was closer than the judges did, but the win means that Pimblett remains undefeated in the UFC.
It has been a wild week for Pimblett, who has been in the headlines thanks to a podcast he did with Dana White, where he tore into Ariel Helwani.
After his win over Gordon, Pimblett was approached by Joe Rogan for the post-fight interview, and he couldn’t resist taking a jab at Helwani.
With his arm around Rogan, Pimblett said into the microphone: “Joe, have you consulted my manager to see how much you’re paying me for this interview?”
Rogan hardly reacted at all, nor did the crowd, and he wanted to get back to talking about the fight itself.
Rogan said: “That was a close one, wasn’t it?”, to which Pimblett responded: “No it wasn’t. That wasn’t close… Not close at all. I won the first two rounds and then coasted in the third.”
Pimblett made his debut in 2012, aged 17, racking up a 3–0 record before signing with Cage Warriors a year later.

In 2016, he claimed the Cage Warriors featherweight championship, beating Johnny Frachey at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, and defended it once against Julian Erosa, winning a somewhat controversial unanimous decision.
In April 2017, Pimblett lost it against Nad Narimani and moved up to lightweight.
After a win, he challenged for the Cage Warriors lightweight championship, losing by unanimous decision to Søren Bak.
After two more wins in the organisation, Pimblett signed a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Pimblett had previously declined two UFC deals, getting better financial offers from Cage Warriors.
