Take a look at Joe Rogan and Belal Muhammad’s shocking reactions when Paddy Pimblett was announced the victor at UFC 282

Paddy Pimblett won a contentious decision over Jared Gordon at UFC 282, but he remains undefeated in the UFC.

Gordon pounded Pimblett with numerous combinations, particularly in the first two rounds, but the Scouser was awarded the victory by the judges. Gordon, clearly disappointed, left as soon as the decision was read, while Pimblett defended the decision claiming that he had no doubts about the result.

When the fight concluded, UFC play-by-play commentator Joe Rogan and top-ranked welterweight contender Belal Muhammad, who was in Gordon’s corner went inside the cage for the decision. As soon as Bruce Buffer announced the controversial decision (declaring, Paddy as the winner), both Joe Rogan and Muhammad couldn’t conceal their immediate reactions.

Pimblett, on his part, is confident that it wasn’t a close fight and maintained his stance in the post-fight interview:

“That wasn’t close. I won the first two rounds and then coasted in the third. I knew I won the first two rounds easily. Jared’s one tough motherf*****. Hats off to Jared.”

Why is Paddy Pimblett banned from Twitter?

Paddy Pimblett has earned the reputation of being overly candid and forthright, particularly when he expresses his opinions on various social media platforms. This has gotten him into trouble in the past on multiple occasions, and as a result, his account has been deleted on a few different occasions. When Pimblett encounters instances of cyberbullying or harsh commentary, he becomes incredibly frustrated. Because he stood up to the bullies and was open and honest about the situation, his account has been suspended more than once.

Paddy Pimblett, a star in the lightweight division of the UFC, has a sizeable following on social media, including millions of followers on Instagram; however, his Twitter account is suspended. Pimblett’s Instagram account is still active and boasts 2.3 million followers, despite the fact that he has been forced to close two other Instagram accounts.

Speaking in a recent episode of The Pub Talks, Pimblett stated:

“I’ve had two accounts disabled on Instagram for ‘bullying and harassment’ when it’s me who gets bullied and harassed. I just give it back. I’ve had two accounts, one with 187,000 followers got disabled. And my second account, it had nearly 900,000 followers and got disabled,” continued Pimblett. “I just can’t say nothing back. I have to be smarter with it.”

Pimblett added:

“I’m also banned on Twitter,” Pimblett . Just calling people stupid, fat idiots and stuff. You know what I mean? They give me grief and I’ve said something back. Because I’m in the public eye, people report my stuff and my account gets shut down.When I open Twitter, ‘your account is permanently suspended.’ It just comes up stating that, so I can’t like or comment to no one.”
