UFC star Paddy Pimblett has named the fighters that he dislikes most in the promotion.

Pimblett’s outspoken nature and popularity amongst fans have made the former Cage Warriors featherweight champion a divisive figure among many of his fellow fighters.

With arguably the biggest win of his career over former interim UFC champion Tony Ferguson secured at UFC 296 last month, Pimblett has taken aim at those who have been sniping at him on social media.

One fighter in particular that Pimblett could not hide his disdain for is Georgian featherweight contender Ilia Topuria.

The pair nearly came to blows during a backstage altercation at UFC London in March 2022, and despite fighting in the weight class below Pimblett, the undefeated Topuria has been calling for the pair to meet inside the Octagon.

‘Probably hand sanitiser boy,’ Pimblett said when asked which fighter he dislikes the most on the Happy Endings podcast. 

‘He’s a sausage. He tried to throw a slap at me when I was on my own, and he was with about 12 of his mates. He tried to throw a slap at me, so I stepped back and threw a hand sanitiser bottle at his head.

‘That’s why I call him hand sanitiser boy. I don’t even know his name. I just know him as hand sanitiser boy.’

15-6 lightweight Terrance McKinney also drew the ire of the Scouse fighter, with Pimblett accusing the American of attempting to secure a fight against him via social media.

‘I’ve had loads of people talking about me,’ Pimblett added. 

‘That little mushroom that goes by the dinosaur name. Whatever his name is, that mushroom, he doesn’t stop talking about me. You can type a name in on someone’s [X account], and he’s got about f****** 700 tweets [about me].

‘Terrance McKinney, his nickname is ‘T-Wrecks,’ every interview he talks about me. No one knows you, you f****** bum.’

Though clearly polarising among his contemporaries, Pimblett explained that the criticism he receives from fighters doesn’t phase him.

‘Anyone that doesn’t like me can suck my d***,’ he said.

‘If you don’t like me, eat s***, lad. F*** off. If you don’t like me, f*** off, what are you here for?’
