In a video clip recently uploaded to his YouTube channel, former Cage Warriors champion Pimblett headed to Ireland to celebrate the birthday of Ellis Hampson, a mixed martial arts coach at Liverpool’s Next Generation MMA gym.
While in Dublin, the country’s capital city, Pimblett embarks on a food journey befitting of the reputation he’s gained when it comes to out-of-camp eating habits. Along with the group, which included ranked UFC women’s flyweight Molly McCann, “The Baddy” dined at The Black Forge public house in Crumlin, which was bought by former two-division UFC champion McGregor for over two million dollars in 2019.
After a greeting and tour from the former owner, the Liverpudlian entourage were seated, with “Meatball” Molly in McGregor’s chair. She also held his UFC championship in the air, remarking that “it’s a matter of time motherf*ckers.”
As well as enjoying the pub’s ribs, wings, steak, burger, cheesecake, and ice cream, Pimblett also interacted with the “Notorious” owner. After being handed a phone with a FaceTime call to McGregor, the lightweight prospect spoke to the man who many compare his MMA journey to date with. During the conversation, McGregor can be heard commenting on Pimblett’s physique, saying, “You’re already putting all that weight on again, lad… I’d crazy because your face is way different straight away.”
