Paddy Pimblett thrown out of Watford vs Liverpool for celebrating in home end

UFC star Paddy Pimblett was thrown out of Watford vs Liverpool over the weekend for celebrating one of his side’s goals in the home end.

Ever since making his UFC debut, Paddy Pimblett has easily been one of the most talked-about fighters in all of mixed martial arts. “The Baddy” knows how to wind people up and although he had to go through some adversity against Luigi Vendramini, the violent nature of his knockout win – as well as his overall personality – continues to earn him plenty of fans and haters in equal measure.

Pimblett has been enjoying his time away from training ever since the victory and that includes going to watch his beloved Liverpool Football Club, both home and away. Over the weekend we saw the Reds run riot with an emphatic 5-0 win over the Hornets at Vicarage Road and in the process, they reaffirmed their position as one of the favourites in this season’s title race.

Paddy the Baddy – back in the spotlight

However, the aforementioned Pimblett wasn’t able to enjoy the whole game as he was ejected for celebrating one of the goals.

The 26-year-old was doing so in the Sir Elton John Stand, where the home supporters are situated, and it’s safe to say he wasn’t pleased about it.

“We’ve been kicked out of the match for celebrating, now we’ve been kicked out of a boozer by stewards because it’s a home boozer. Watford, Ben Foster I love you lad, but I hope Watford go down. You are horrible.”

It was later revealed by Pimblett himself that the reason he was sat in the home end was that Foster was the one who got him the tickets.

Pimblett, who fights in the UFC’s illustrious lightweight division, is expected to get back into the octagon and continue building towards a place in the top 15 within the next few months.
