UFC star, Paddy Pimblett and his wife, Laura Gregory have welcomed a pair of twin daughters into the world this week – with the couple giving birth to Betsy and Margot, the Liverpool favorite revealed on his official social media.

Pimblett, currently boasting an unbeaten record since his move to the UFC three years ago, managed to capture global attention inside the mixed martial arts community after striking gold at the featherweight limit under the banner of Cage Warriors.

And making a long-overdue move to the Octagon back in 2021, Pimblett has so-far enjoyed an unbeaten tenure under the banner of the Dana White-led promotion, scoring back-to-back wins over Luigi Vendramini, Kazula Vargas, Jordan Leavitt, and Jared Gordon.

Receiving a pair of notable call outs following this month’s UFC 300 card in Las Vegas, Pimblett first came to the attention of veteran lightweight favorite, Bobby Green, who offered to fight the Liverpool native on enemy territory – after bludgeoning Jim Miller en route to a decision win.

Also on the preliminary card, Pimblett received an offer of a clash from Brazilian shot caller, Renato Moicano, who offered to meet him in July following his come-from-behind knockout success against Jalin Turner.
