Paddy Pimblett says he isn’t precisely certain what he has to achieve from his combat subsequent month with Tony Ferguson.

Pimblett will tackle the biggest-named opponent of his blended martial arts profession thus far at UFC 296 in Las Vegas on December 16. His bout reverse Tony Ferguson shall be Pimblett’s first in additional than a 12 months since his contentious determination win towards Jared Gordon — a bout which many observers scored in favour of the American, and through which Pimblett suffered an ankle harm which required surgical procedure and a protracted, enforced absence from the UFC cage.

The combat is one thing of a novel one in UFC matchmaking, provided that it pits Pimblett’s six-fight win streak (4 of which got here within the UFC) towards Ferguson’s six-fight dropping streak, and the Liverpool man informed Sky Sports that he expects it to be troublesome to return out of the combat towards the skilled Ferguson with any form of credit score, no matter the way it goes down.

“This combat is a lose-lose state of affairs for me,” Pimblett mentioned. “Once I win they’ll be like, ‘Oh, he was on a six-fight dropping streak anyway, he’s completed anyway,’ and I don’t assume it’s gonna occur however even when I did lose they’ll be like, ‘Oh, he’s simply been beat by a completed Tony Ferguson.’ Tony Ferguson is Tony Ferguson.“
