In the co-main event of UFC 282 in December, “The Baddy” maintained his unbeaten UFC run with a points win over Gordon, however, the result was disputed and has been called “one of the worst UFC decisions ever.” The fight metrics indicate that Gordon should have won the fight because he landed more punches and takedowns than Pimblett did throughout the three rounds. Fans and fighters alike believe that Gordon should have won the bout.

Gordon asserted that it was a robbery and demanded that the contest be revisited. Pimblett has consented to run it back now three months later, so there is a chance that he will get what he is asking for.

After undergoing an operation to fix what his physician diagnosed as a “multi-ligament sprain” on his right foot, the Liverpool native posted a video to his YouTube channel while he was still in the hospital. At this point, he let loose with an angry callout to Gordon.

“(People are saying) ‘Oh, Jared Gordon did so well.’ He only done well ‘cause me ankle was f—ked. And he’s just being a bitter little girl going on every interview site. ‘Oh, I will not fight, I will not fight.’

“Well, lad, Joe Solecki beat you. You got a split decision. So shut your mouth.

“I’m gonna punch his head towards the end of the year. I am gonna run it back. I hope he beats Bobby Green, ‘cause I’ll snap his arm for him in a round. Had a boxing match with him, and I still won. ‘Cause you’re shit.”

“I hope he watches this. You’re f—ng dogshit. At my worst, you couldn’t beat me at your best. Injured, everything going wrong. You couldn’t beat me on my worst day, and I beat you on your best. ‘Cause you’re a little bum.”

As a reaction to the video, Gordon tweeted to Pimblett’s post with the following message:

 

“Funny thing is going into this fight I had an ankle injury as well, documented by UFC. I couldn’t walk for weeks after our fight too. I get why he’s angry. He knows I won. Like the rest of the world.”

 

After undergoing surgery, it is currently unknown when Pimblett will be able to resume his usual tasks. On April 22 at the APEX, Gordon will be facing off against Bobby Green.
