Luigi Vendramini (9-2) vs Paddy Pimblett (16-3)

Lightweight (155)

Luigi Vendramini

A relatively stern test for Pimblett’s hotly-anticipated debut in the UFC, the Brazilian is a pretty tasty underdog to back. Solid grappling chops may stop Pimblett from walking over his man as many fans expect, while he has a clear advantage on the feet. Sure, Vendramini often wades forward into danger, but Pimblett doesn’t have any form of quality counter-striking to pose a threat. If he flies out in the opening round, in a similar manner to the final round against Fares Ziam, then he could spoil the Scouser’s party.

Paddy Pimblett

The time has finally come for the gobbiest fighter at Cage Warriors to fight in the big leagues. Pimblett is clearly an entertaining grappler, whether he has exceptional BJJ is yet to be seen. Of greatest concern will be Pimblett’s uninspired striking. For a fighter so willing to engage on the feet, it is concerning that he lacks any real head movement. Still, it is through his sloppy striking and resulting chaos that Pimblett often finds his opportunity to shoot.

Predicted Result: Pimblett Decision

A relatively stern test for Pimblett’s hotly-anticipated debut in the UFC. Of greatest concern will be Pimblett’s uninspired striking. Vendramini often wades forward into danger, but Pimblett doesn’t have any form of quality counter-striking to pose a threat. If he flies out in the opening round, in a similar manner to the final round against Fares Ziam, then he could spoil the Scouser’s party. More likely, Pimblett finds a takedown in the chaos of an early exchange and rides out a fairly one-sided decision on the mat.
