‘The Eagle’ had recently been a part of the ‘Hot Boxin with Mike Tyson Podcast’. During and after that interview, Khabib Nurmagomedov had made comments about Mike Tyson smoking weed and eating fast food that did not sit well with the fans. Many people had commented about that and now ‘Baddy’ has shared his views on the same.

He said, “I’d love (bringing Khabib out of retirement) lad, I would. I’d love that. But I can’t see him coming back at all. He’s become the Karen of the MMA scene.”

“On the podcast with Mike Tyson the other day lad he’s going, ‘Oh can you put this fast food away, and this weed?’ No, lad! It’s his podcast, he’ll do what he wants. Shut up! You’ve been invited on as a guest, lad. Do as you’re told you, di**y.”

Like many other people, Pimblett also does not seem to like Nurmagomedov’s comments. And while ‘Baddy’ quickly turned down any news of ‘The Eagle’ making a comeback, the fighter was critical of Nurmagomedov’s appearance on Tyson’s podcast.

Paddy Pimblett does not agree with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s behavior and comments

Pimblett in his interview with Submission Radio talked about how he thinks Nurmagomedov has become ‘the Karen of MMA’. Now, during the latest episode of UFC unfiltered, Pimblett gave the reason behind his comments.

He said, “Just don’t understand how you can go on a podcast called ‘Hot Boxin’ with Mike Tyson’ and complain about him smoking cannabis. What planet do you live on, bro? Anyone asks me a question about it, I’m not going to shy away from it.”

“I’ll answer it honestly. I don’t care what all the fanboys got to say about me. That’s why some people love me and some hate me. After the podcast, he (Khabib) came out and said that he didn’t like the way Tyson was smoking and had fast food. I say at least watch an episode before going on a podcast.”

Pimblett is currently one of the most talked-about fighters in the UFC. And while many people might consider his comments about Nurmagomedov to be an attention-seeking ploy. That might not be the case, as other people have also come out and criticized Nurmagomedov for his comments during and after the Tyson podcast.
