Rumors surfaced on the internet as to how much the fighters made for their fights, but the reality was far from the reverie. Pimblett even made fun of a post on Twitter that detailed the payout of each fighter on the card. He said, ‘

Speaking to “The Dave Portnoy Show With Eddie & Co.” the fighters revealed how much they actually made, “Yup, $12k and $12k [12k to show and 12k to fight] ”

“You have to pay your dues, but I’ll tell you one thing Dave, Dana will be getting the money out for our boy Patrick now,” McCann added as Portnoy was stunned at the low pay Pimblett received. She was then asked to confirm how much she was paid and McCann replied, “I think it was $40k and $40k.”

Both fighters received an extra 50 grand for their performance, but it is noteworthy how little they made without that.

Paddy Pimblett calls out ‘bully’ Mark Zuckerberg for his next fight

Paddy has a reputation of being too unvarnished and upfront, especially while speaking his mind on social media. This has put him in a jam several times in the past, and his account has been deleted on various occasions.

Pimblett gets really irked when he comes across cyber-bullying and harsh comments. His account has been blocked several times because he confronted the bullies, and he spoke candidly about this subject.

“I don’t even care that people say stuff about me, say stuff about me all you want, but not about a three-year-old child that’s fighting for his life. I can’t sit there and let someone talk about that.”

Following his first-round victory against Vargas, Pimblett spoke to Bisping inside the octagon and called out Zuckerberg in an epic rant. He said, “Mark Zuckerberg – lad, I’m gonna punch your head in. I’m sick of you, lad. I’m sick of you shutting my Instagram accounts down when all I do is help charities & help people with mental health problems. You’re the biggest bully in the world, lad.”
