Paddy Pimblett explains why he dubbed Khabib Nurmagomedov the “Karen of MMA”

Adam D Martin - September 5, 2021

Former Cage Warriors star and new UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett explained why he dubbed Khabib Nurmagomedov the “Karen of MMA.” Pimblett had an exceptional UFC debut on Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas when he brutally finished Luigi Vendramini with punches in the first round after getting rocked earlier in the round. It was a fantastic victory for the Brit, who earned a $50,000 bonus for his comeback KO victory. Of course, Pimblett is a bit of a controversial figure due to his bold takes and some of the things he’s said about the bigger-name fighters in MMA, including the former UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov, who he recently called a “Karen.” Speaking on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast, Pimblett explained those comments.
