McGregor joined the UFC as a two-division Cage Warriors champion. His personality has always been something that has intrigued fans. Also, he backed his talks inside the Octagon as well. It’s hard to argue the impeccable skills he put on display in the earlier days of his UFC career. The Irishman’s meteoric rise was the primary reason behind the UFC’s popularity today.

Pimblett has joined the promotion as a Cage Warriors champion as well. And much like McGregor, he has a personality that fans love as well. But it would be unfair to put him under the pressure of matching McGregor, as it might hinder his achievements. Nevertheless, fans can’t wait to see what ‘The Baddy’ can bring to the Octagon.
