Paddy Pimblett, amidst the doubts, went out to face Tony Ferguson. He beat him one-sidedly and he is one of the best fighters ever at 155 pounds.
Even though he has won a dominant victory, his fellow fighters are still dismissing him. Renato Moicano, a fighter who has openly admitted that he is unsure if ‘The Baddy’ can compete at an elite level, was one of those people.
Money Moicano, who won the UFC Vegas 85 decision by a large margin, played matchmaker to Paddy Pimblett. The Brazilian wants the Scouser to prove his mettle, so he matches him up with heavyweight Drew Dober.
Moicano said in a social media post: “I’d like to see Drew Dober fight Paddy Pimblett.” Let’s see just how tough this kid is.
I want to see drew Dober fighting paddy pimblett next… let’s see how tough is this kid…. #ufc

Pimblett responded quickly to Moicano’s proposal. Pimblett, a Liverpudlian, claimed that Moicano would be an easier opponent than Drew Dober.
