Paddy Pimblett shreds weight of a bulldog or 684 packs of crisps in two months

Paddy Pimblett has lost the equivalent of one British bulldog – or 684 packets of crisps – in weight after shedding a whopping 49lb in just two months.

Pimblett, 25, monster munched his way through an 11,000 calorie junk food binge following his first round victory over Rodrigo Vargas in March, ballooning to a colossal 205lb. Dubbing himself 'Paddy the fatty,' the UFC favourite even chowed down on a pizza in a press conference after his success over the Mexican.

Despite his love for tasty treats – and an admission that he'd rather be "fat and happy than ripped" – Pimblett got to work reducing his weight once again for his upcoming bout against Jordan Leavitt at the O2 Arena on Saturday.

His transformation was clear for all to see during the weigh-in for the bout as he tipped the scales at 156lbs, meaning he has lost 49lb in just a few months.

That is a little more than the weight of a mature male bulldog (a comparison that Pimblett will no doubt love), a 50-gallon drum of KY jelly (don't ask how we know that), or 684 packs of 32.5g ready salted crisps (other crisps are available).

Pimblett showed off his impressive weight-loss at the weigh-in by displaying his bare bum and saying: "For everyone that's tried to fat-shame me and say I'd miss weight or f***ing what was it, pull out… kiss me a***."

The 2-0 UFC star spoke about his weight during an appearance on ESPN MMA earlier this week. He said: "I just enjoy life. I don't want to be ripped all the time. I'm not one of these people [whose like] 'oh, look at my body, look at my shape.' I don't care what my body looks like. No matter what, I can fight.

"At the end of the day, whether I'm a fat b****** or I'm in shape I can fight. I can still knock people out and submit people. It doesn't matter what I look like. I was at my heaviest when I was in San Diego, I got up to 205lb," he added.

Pimblett will be hoping to take his UFC record to 3-0 this weekend when he faces American challenger Leavitt at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.
