Rising British mixed martial artist Paddy Pimblett will face his biggest test in the UFC plus his first PPV bow when he takes on experienced American Jared Gordon in the co-main event of UFC 282. The Lightweight bout takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, where Pimblett starts as the clear favorite courtesy of not just his unbeaten record since joining the UFC but also that he has not seen the third round. We preview the fighters and post odds for the exciting matchup.

Where to watch: PPV

Born on Merseyside, “The Baddy,” who debuted in the UFC in September 2021, made an immediate statement with a Performance of the Night award in his first-round KO of Luigi Vendramini. He subsequently won two more Performance of the Night bonus awards to make it three times fantastic. His UFC record reads one KO and two submissions for an undefeated sheet. The 27-year-old lightweight made his professional debut at 17, winning the featherweight title at the regional promotions. He twice turned down a move to the UFC because the Cage Warriors Fighting championship paid him more. Pimblett has a magnetic personality and connects with the fans. He is not yet in the rankings, but a victory against his toughest foe so far will likely push him into the lightweight rankings.

I think this next fight he's got is going to really be a test to find out where he's at in his fighting career. He's fighting an experienced guy who's dangerous. This is going to be a measuring stick for sure. I think this guy will be more battle-tested than previous fights he's had in the UFC.

“Flash” has been around the UFC for quite some time, debuting in 2017. He has alternated between featherweight and lightweight in the promotion making his return to lightweight just over a year ago. Since his return to the 155 Ib class, the 34-year-old American from New York has gone 2-1 over three fights, earning wins over Joe Solecki and Leonardo Santos on either side of a third-round submission loss to rising star Grant Dawson. With a 19-5 record overall, this is a chance to upset the odds and collect a massive win and tremendous momentum.
