Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett odds-on favourite to win against Jordan Leavitt at UFC London

One of the UK’s most promising and explosive fighters returns this Saturday as the UFC makes its third appearance at the London O2.

The lightweight is looking to make it three wins from three since entering the UFC and he is the overwhelming favourite with bookmakers at best odds of 2/5 to do so. 

Paddy’s last appearance was at the UFC London event in March, where he defeated Rodrigo Vargas to go 18-3 in his professional career.

On that day he submitted the Brazilian in the first round, and he is a best price of 11/4 to make Leavitt tap out on Saturday night. 

Liverpool born and bred Pimblett, is 5/2 for a Round 1 finish, 9/2 in Round 2, and 9/1 to win the fight in the final round.

Despite the odds favouring Paddy, Jordan Leavitt should be his toughest opponent yet, going 3-1 in his four UFC fights (10-1 professional record). 

In the American’s previous bout in April, he defeated Trey Ogden by split decision, and he is the 9/4 outsider to get the win on Saturday. 

Leavitt has won six of his professional bouts by submission and is 7/1 best price with Unibet to make that a seventh at the O2. 

Our most popular bet in this fight market is Paddy Pimblett to win by KO/TKO or Submission, which Sky Bet and Boyles Sports are offering a best price of 4/5.

You can watch UFC London on BT Sport 1 on Saturday 23rd July with the fight card beginning at 6pm.
