This Beautiful move showed a great transition from Guillotine choke attempt to a flying triangle followed by armbar submission from triangle hold.
Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett pulled this move on his opponent Alexis Savvidis. In the first round, Paddy was threatening with a lot of heel hook attempts, but he was defending an armbar at the end of the 1st round.
In a 2nd round, Paddy was trying to pull a guillotine choke and then jumped for a triangle. After that, it was an easy job for him tapping his opponent with an armbar.
Paddy Pimblett aka “The Baddy” is 23-year-old MMA fighter from Liverpool, England. He’s currently holding an MMA record of 15-2-0 (Win-Loss-Draw). Paddy is considered as one of the top Europeans prospects.
This fight was Paddy’s “comeback” fights as he lost the title against Nad Nariman in April 2017. He was fighting against Nad at featherweight division. But, since then, he moved up to the lightweight division and he had an awesome comeback with a fight against Alexis Savvidis. The fight between Paddy Pimblett and Alexis Savvidis happened on CWFC 90 – Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 90 at Echo Arena in Liverpool.
After the fight, Paddy called for a Lightweight Title shot. We’ll see if he’ll get it but we can say that he showed more than enough to become a champion once again. Is he a new UFC star and will he justify people calling him a new UFC star the time will tell?
😱 WOW@PaddyTheBaddy WINS VIA FLYING TRIANGLE 🤯👏
