Pimblett (17-3 MMA) had entered the lightweight contest sporting a two-fight winning streak, his latest being a first-round submission victory over Davide Martinez this past March. ‘The Baddy‘ had gone just 3-2 over his past five fights overall ahead of his promotional debut.

Meanwhile, Luigi Vendramini (9-3 MMA) entered UFC Vegas 36 looking to rebound, this after suffering a unanimous decision loss to Fares Ziam in his most recent effort back in June.

Today’s Pimblett vs. Vendramini bout proved to be a wild back and forth affair. Vendramini was able to hurt ‘The Baddy’ with a clean left hook in the early moments of the fight. However, Paddy Pimblett was able to overcome the adversity and wound up finishing Luigi in the late stages of the opening round after landing a plethora of punches.
