Video: Ilia Topuria & Paddy Pimblett scuffle at UFC London fighter hotel

The altercation seemed bound to happen sooner or later. A year ago April, recent UFC signee Paddy Pimblett made waves with several of his fellow fighters when he decided to chime in on the long-standing conflict between Russia and former the former USSR territory, and now sovereign nation, of Georgia.

“Lad how stupid are these Georgians wonder the Russians terrorize their lives,” Pimblett wrote in a since deleted tweet, alongside a host of laughing emojis.

The comment drew the ire of several fighters in the UFC. And with Georgian featherweight talent Ilia Topuria set to compete on the same card as Pimblett this coming Saturday in London, England, it seems ‘El Matador’ took the opportunity to share his thoughts with the Liverpudlian—in a decidedly fistic manner.
