Ilia Topuria on rivalry with Paddy Pimblett: ‘F*** him!’

<!– –>

Undefeated UFC featherweight Ilia Topuria isn’t a big fan of rising lightweight star Paddy Pimblett. The two had a physical altercation at UFC London in March. The friction between the two began after comments Pimblett made about Topuria’s countrymen.

During the incident, Topuria can be seen connecting with a right hand. Shortly following the scuffle, Topuria commented about the altercation and posted the video on social media.

“The reason why I threw the bottle and right hand @theufcbaddy I’m a man of my word. I told you what would happen if I saw you. The one who said that was going to do something was you and you didn’t do anything other than shit your pants. Stay quiet kid,” Topuria tweeted.

“I warned you! This is what happens when you disrespect me and my country!,” Topuria wrote on Twitter at the time. “You saw me and wanted to greet me because you s t your pants… and you should thank my team because if it wasn’t for them separating me, I would have taken your head off.”

As luck would have it, the two are competing on the same fight card this weekend, UFC 282. at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Topuria was asked about his rivalry with Pimblett during Wednesday’s UFC 282 Media Day and he answered how you’d expect.

“I don’t really care about that,” Topuria said when asked about fighting on the same card as Pimblett. “F**k him.”

“I went two weeks ago to the PI. They take him from the back door. He’s not coming to the hotel. Why? Because he’s scared, so f**k him,” continued Topuria.
