Two weeks after revealing he was waiting for ‘an opponent to step up and sign the dotted line,’ the ‘Baddy’ has his next fight set. The UFC announced Saturday that Pimblett would share the Octagon with Jared Gordon at UFC 282, the upcoming pay-per-view event scheduled for Dec. 10 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Since his arrival to the promotion over a year ago, Pimblett has finished all three of his opponents. Following his successful debut against Luigi Vendramini, the former Cage Warriors champion submitted Rodrigo Vargas and Jordan Leavitt in back-to-back outings in front of a hometown crowd in London. The Liverpudlian has received ‘Performance of the Night’ bonuses in all of his UFC fights thus far.
