He’s set to fight Jordan Leavitt tonight at the O2

Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett has been suspended from Twitter once again mere hours before his UFC London fight against Jordan Leavitt.

The lightweight has developed an enormous following on social media, amassing more than 240k subscribers on YouTube. But such notoriety has sparked issues, with the 27-year-old Liverpudlian often engaging in fierce arguments with fans on social media. Some even challenge him to a fight.

It’s not yet clear why his account has been suspended this time, but Pimblett’s mind is undoubtedly focused on his upcoming fight this evening at the O2.

Earlier this year, Pimblett hit out at Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg after both his Instagram and Facebook accounts were shut down. In his post-fight interview following a win against Rodrigo Vargas, Pimblett savaged the Meta CEO and said he would love to fight him.

“Who I want to fight? Mark Zuckerberg. Lad I’m gonna punch your head in!” he scathed. “I’m sick of you lad. You know what I mean. Sick of you shutting my Instagram accounts down. All I do, is help charities and help people with mental health problems. You’re the biggest bully in the world lad!”

He also branded Zuckerberg a “lizard” but acknowledged that he needed to exercise caution as he’s already found himself kicked out of two accounts. His second had “120,000 followers.”

Pimblett and Leavitt are set to face off tonight at 20:00 and are streaming on BT sports for those in the UK.
