In a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, Chael Sonnen gave some insight into what changed his opinion of Paddy Pimblett and why he wouldn’t reject the prospect in the future.

“The Baddy” has an aura and a personality that fans either love or hate, and while he has many fans, he also has a handful of people against him. His weight issues are an ongoing issue for the 155-pounder that fans don’t agree with, but there are some who aren’t fans of his outspoken nature.

While chatting about Paddy Pimblett with his followers, Chael Sonnen insisted the Scouser’s performance was “as close to perfect” as it gets. This was due to what the fighter faced before the fight.

“As good as Paddy looked in his ability to pick up the pace and outrun his opponent, hustle and outplay his opponent, I maintain he dealt with stress and pressure, mentally and physically… I submit for you this performance was as close to perfection as I have seen in a period of time.”

“And I submit to you that he wasn’t at his best. When he gave that post-fight interview and we found out he was dealing with a death… He stayed professional until ‘it’s time to break up and be a real human being… The days of giving Paddy a hard time are behind me.’

The Briton put on another impressive performance inside the octagon when he landed a rear choke on Jordan Leavitt at UFC London earlier this year. However, it was his post-fight suicide awareness speech that caught the world’s attention.

Check out what Chael Sonnen had to say about his change of heart on Pimblett in the video below:

Who will face Paddy Pimblett next?

Paddy Pimblett sits on the sidelines waiting for an opponent to be presented by the UFC. But who should the lightweight realistically face in his next outing?

Sitting 3-0 since the start of his UFC journey, the 27-year-old will soon be knocking on the door of the top 15 at 155 pounds.

Many unranked lightweights seemingly have all the potential in the world, but one matchup that stands out above the rest is a grudge match against Ilia Topuria. The two had a fight backstage, and with their fighting style, it would make for a potential contender’s war fight of the year.
