Meanwhile, as is the fate of all UFC fighters, everyone must go through a trademark feud. And it seems like Pimblett has found his social media feuding partner in none other than UFC veteran Diego Sanchez. Notably, ‘The Nightmare’ called it upon himself as he dubbed the Liverpudlian a clown on an Instagram post featuring ‘The Baddy’ himself.

However, Pimblett was quick to notice Sanchez’s mischief and unloaded at his critic in a fierce comeback. The 27-year-old was swift to reply to Sanchez’s comment as he unloaded on the 40-year-old with fury.

He wrote, “Diego Sanchez, lad are you really trying to call me a clown?! Go and get brainwashed by that Fabia dude again like he’s your cult leader you dumb mother f*cker. You’re the laughing stock of this whole sport! Ever talk shit about me again you f*cking has been – I slap your ass up.”

However, the Briton deleted the comment for unknown reasons and later posted the same on Twitter, with the caption. He Tweeted, “Come at the king….. you best not miss 🤭 @DiegoSanchezUFC.”

Accompanied by another response, “Exactly man Diego is a legend of the game him vs guida was the 1st fight I watched. But he’s now the laughing stock of the sport letting that idiot take advantage of him even to the point where he’s now been cut….. he can’t call anybody a clown 🤦🏼‍♂️🙄”

With that said, everyone is curious to know his insights and predictions of the sport. Notably, the Briton recently predicted that ‘The Highlight’ will soon take over the 155-pound division as he is better than the reigning king Charles Oliveira.

Chiefly, Pimblett made the comments in a personal capacity over his YouTube channel. He said, “I thinks it’s gonna be Justin Gaethje. I really like Charles Oliveira. He’s brilliant, I mean he’s very good. But I just can’t see Gaethje going to the ground with him at all.”
