After going five rounds with current UFC standout Julian Erosa, Pimblett stood in the center of the cage fielding questions for the first time as a defending champion. He came out of the fight looking relatively unharmed, but visibly and audibly gassed.
Each answer was geared toward his diet and the weight cut, and immediately after making the room laugh by calling himself a fatty, he made them gag as the entire arena was treated to him vomiting mid-answer.
After living out most people’s biggest fear, Pimblett shamelessly carried on. Was “The Baddy” going to let a little bit of vomit stand in the way of his first title defense? Not a chance.
“The fact is I got my arm raised; I don’t care about being sick in the cage,” Pimblett said.
