While Frevola had previously called out the Scouser, during his in-cage interview the 32-year-old would use his time on the mic to call out Pimblett.

“Listen up, Paddy Pimblett, you absolutely suck,” Frevola said during his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan.

“Stop being a b**** and let’s fight! You’re on a four-fight win streak. I’m on a three-fight win streak. If you’re in the UFC, you can’t pick and choose your fights. You’ve got to fight who the fans want to see you fight.

Paddy Pimblett responds

Upon seeing the clip, Pimblett would leave a comment via Instagra, claiming that he would accept the fight after branding Frevola the easiest way into the top 15.

‘Bit of a weird time to call me out when I can’t even train like,” Pimblett wrote. “But (yeah), I’d fight frevola when I’m back(. He’s) probably the easiest route into the top 15.’- Paddy Pimblett responds to callout.

Pimblett is currently recovering from an ankle injury that he faced in his most recent fight against Jared Gordon at UFC 282 last December. The 28-year-old received surgery last month with the injury being worse than initially expected.
