Paddy Pimblett slams Twitter for suspending his account before UFC London

Paddy Pimblett may have once again stole the show at UFC London with an exhilarating submission victory – but he wasn't able to tweet about his triumph due to his Twitter suspension.

Pimblett's @theufcbaddy account was suspended the day before the event without notice – and he explained his thoughts behind the restriction after his third successive promotional victory which came against Jordan Leavitt.

"What did they say, because my first account got suspended and they've only just realised that @theufcbaddy is me," Pimblett said, suggesting that mistaken identity allowed him to use the new account without bother until now.

"How? What spaceman runs your internet website?

"Elon Musk, buy twitter lad and let's box this."

Pimblett's dream Twitter owner looked set to become a reality earlier in the year, but Musk has since pulled out of a £36billion agreement in a row over bots.

Following a stunning victory in his UFC debut back in September over Luigi Vendramini, Pimblett chose not to call out a fellow fighter but instead Instagram chiefs.

"I'm not really calling anyone out, I just want to call out a company. Instagram, give me my account back, you lizards," he said inside the octagon.

Following his second UFC victory, which came against Kazula Vargas, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was the target of Pimblett's fury.

He said: "I’m going to punch your head in, I am sick of you.

"Sick of you shutting my Instagram accounts down when all I do is help charities and help people with mental health problems."

Pimblett's Instagram remains active after his second UFC London victory – and he now has more then one million followers with over 200,000 joining in the last week.
