“Good luck paddy I was outside your gaf all hours with your man with long hair out that way that doing 30 year now forget his name hahahaha knock knock who’s there not mike hahahaah it’s Brews not bevvies with them US meatball.” – McGregor wrote on Twitter.
Many fans and analysts had difficulty attempting to decipher Conor’s message, this due to the British slang used in the tweet. With that said, Paddy Pimblett was kind enough to provide a translation of McGregor’s message during an interview with RT Sport.
“I understood a lot. You know what I mean, I understood it. What he was saying is, like, good luck, obviously. And then he was saying, like, when he was in Liverpool he was supposedly outside my house,” added Pimblett. “And he was with someone who’s now doing thirty years in jail. So that’s what (Conor McGregor) was getting it, know what I mean.” (h/t Sportskeeda)
Paddy Pimblett will enter UFC Vegas 36 sporting a two-fight winning streak, his latest being a first-round submission victory over Davide Martinez this past March.
As for Conor McGregor, the former two-division UFC champion is currently recovering from the broken leg that he suffered in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
