A man in demand, Paddy Pimblett is back on a UFC card after more than a year out with injury.

This time around, 'The Baddy' will be facing mixed martial arts royalty in Tony Ferguson. Despite his legendary status in UFC, Ferguson is without a doubt in the twilight years of his career at 39. He's also lost his last six bouts so will be looking for a big victory against Scouser Pimblett.

Ferguson also featured on the iconic UFC 229 card, headlined by Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, defeating Anthony Pettis on the night.

Pimblett has spent one year outside of the octagon, with his last fight being a victory against Jared Gordon at UFC 282 on December 10, 2022. Pimblett injured his ankle in the fight, and said back in April that he would be lucky to fight in 2023.

Pimblett has publicly said on JaackMaate's Happy Hour that he is going to "finish a legend's career" and "I hope I can finish him and beat him up without giving him any more brain damage than he's already got".
