Renato ‘Moicano,’ Paddy Pimblett Trade Barbs on Social Media, Tease Potential Fight


Pimblett and Renato
Carneiro are teasing a potential clash after trading barbs on
social media.

“Moicano” outgrappled Drew Dober
over three rounds to earn a unanimous decision win in the co-main
event at
UFC Fight Night 235 on Saturday. The Brazilian, who has been
amping up his media presence recently, turned matchmaker to propose
a clash between Dober and Paddy
Pimblett next.

“I want to see Drew Dober fighting Paddy Pimblett next… let’s see
how tough is this kid,” Carneiro wrote on X (formerly known as

Pimblett was quick to respond to the Brazilian’s suggestion in a
social media post of his own. However, the Liverpudlian didn’t seem
too interested in Carneiro’s proposal. Instead, Pimblett claims he
can “smoke” Moicano much easier than Dober.

“Why would I fight Dober when I could smoke you much easier?”
Pimblett wrote. “Moicano” obliged, calling for a clash against “The
Baddy” at UFC
300 in April. “Paddy is calling me out,” Carneiro wrote. “I
fight you any day of the week. There’s your UFC 300 main event
ladies and gentlemen…Moicano vs. Paddy. I want to fight [Beneil]
Dariush but if Paddy wants the smoke … he can have it.”

Moicano is riding a two-fight winning streak and has won four of
his last five. Meanwhile, Pimblett has won seven straight, which
includes five
Ultimate Fighting Championship wins.
