Talking to ESPN MMA, “That’s another performance of the night. I’m never in a boring fight, that’s something that you can’t say about me,” said Paddy The Baddy. Last night’s win at the O2 Arena was Paddy’s second first-round finish in the UFC and he has been in only two fights in the promotion.

Khabib is undoubtedly one of the greatest to ever do it. Earlier this month, at UFC 272, Khabib was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame for his dominant career. The Dagestani has a record of 29-0 and was never in any real danger in his fights, making him one of the most dominant fighters to ever do the sport. However, Paddy is not all sold out on that.
