UFC London is official, with all fighters making weight Friday morning in the British capital.
An orderly affair, the bulk of the card had weighed in within the opening thirty minutes. The last fighter to hit the scales was Marc Diakiese, but he did so without drama. The heavyweight headliners, Curtis Blaydes and Tom Aspinall? There was never a question.
As was the case back in March, July’s UFC London card has very much been the Paddy and Molly show. Paddy Pimblett and teammate Molly McCann, the duo from Liverpool, might not exactly be MMA’s answer to The Beatles, but they’re undeniably captivating. On Friday, weighing in early, Pimblett took the time to expose his bare backside to the cameras, chastising those who had “fat shamed” him ahead of the event.

Paddy, as is well known, likes to eat, and admittedly blimps up between fights. He’s yet to miss weight, however, as was the case again on Friday.
