Paddy Pimblett dares Bobby Green to grapple with him

Paddy Pimblett doubts Bobby Green will tussle with him on the ground at UFC 304.

Pimblett (21-3 MMA, 5-0 UFC) takes on Green (32-15-1 MMA, 13-10-1 UFC) on the main card of the July 27 event at Co-op Live in Manchester, England (ESPN+ pay-per-view).

Pimblett recalls catching Green saying that he can’t submit him, and “The Baddy” challenges him to try and prove that theory inside the octagon.

“Bobby makes me laugh the way he keeps saying, ‘Paddy mentioned me first,’” Pimblett said on his YouTube channel. “Lad, someone reminded me about this yesterday: Remember when I was in San Diego with my wife, and you were sitting two rows behind me? Videoing on Instagram Live the back of my head, talking sh*t about me. Didn’t have the balls to come over and say nothing to my face. So, who was talking about who first? Definitely weren’t me. You were talking about me in 2021, 2022.

“But I also seen a story the other week, him saying, ‘Anyone can knock anyone out with a lucky punch, but Paddy you’re saying you’re going to submit me. You can’t submit me.’ Grapple with me then, lad. Back your word up. We both know that you can strike even though you’ve got no power. We both know that I’ll strike with you and that you can get knocked out. Grapple with me. Let’s see if you’ve got the balls to grapple with me after saying I won’t submit you.”

Nine of Pimblett’s professional wins have come by submission, including back-to-back over Rodrigo Vargas and Jordan Leavitt in the UFC. Green also has nine submission wins on his resume, most recently an arm-triangle choke of Tony Ferguson at UFC 291.
