How did paddy lose 50 pounds?
Prior to his next attack with Jared Gordon at UFC 282 on 10 Dec at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the well-known lightweight shared his weight-management strategy on his YouTube channel.
It’s not rocket science, according to Pimblett. “It’s not difficult. Create a calorie deficit for yourself. Why do you suppose I become so obese? I must transition from eating 1,500–2,000 calories per day to 8,000 calories per day. That is why the weight accumulates and why it is so simple to lose.
In his recent vlog comment about his close friend martial artist Molly McCann’s defeat to Erin Blanchfield at UFC 281 seems to have given him more motivation to perform well versus Gordon.
