Previewing his upcoming clash against Gordon later this month, Pimblett touched on the subject of McGregor attemping to show up at his house during a 2016 trip to Liverpool to attend the Aintree horse racing festival. 

“He [Conor McGregor] was meant to have [turned up] but I think he knocked on the wrong door,” Paddy Pimblett said during a recent interview with Mola. “When he was on that mad bener in Liverpool years ago when there was videos of him in a treehouse like that. Ermmm – he came – he was meant to have come to my house because he was with another scouser at the time.”

“But my mum, she had a camera, not a Ring doorbell – it was well before them times, it was like 2016,” Paddy Pimblett explained. “So, obviously, I rang me mum, I was like, ‘Hey, check the cameras there, if McGregor’s knocking on our house, it’s getting videoed and put on me Insta immediately.’ And, he never [kncoked]. But I wish he did.” (Trascribed by SportsKeeda
