UFC star "kicked out" for celebrating Liverpool goals in Watford end
When he's not fighting he's usually a regular at Liverpool games
UFC star and Liverpool fan Paddy Pimblett has revealed that he was "kicked out" of Vicarage Road for celebrating Liverpool's goals from the home end during the Red's 5-0 demolition job of Watford.
Speaking from his Instagram story, Pimblett explained why he had been ejected from the ground and why he and his friend were also told to leave a nearby pub.
He said: "Been kicked out of the match for celebrating. Now we've been kicked out of the boozer by stewards because it's a home boozer."

Clearly frustrated at the turn of events, Pimblett added that he hoped that the Hornets wouldn't be in the Premier League next season - even if he does have a soft spot for goalkeeper Ben Foster.
"Watford, Ben Foster I love you lad, but I hope Watford go down, yous are horrible" ranted the UFC fighter.
'Paddy the Baddy' then uploaded a clip of his interaction with Watford's stewards and began to rant about the treatment he received, claiming he and his friend weren't the only ones celebrating.
"Cannot believe the audacity of these stewards singling us out when multiple ppl celebrated around us an escorted us out the stadium @watfordfcofficial do something about ur stewards," his post said.
Many people replied to Pimblett's response with one person highlighting he had never been removed from a ground, and the Liverpool local responded by saying they were "treated like criminals."
He said: That’s it mate we never went over the top only jumped up as a natural reaction as we’re all staunch reds, all’s they had to do was have a word and say don’t do it again an we wudnt instead they treated us like criminals and escorted us out when we’d done nothing wrong. Disgrace!"
