Jared Gordon recently expressed interest in a rematch against Paddy Pimblett.

Gordon locked horns with Pimblett in a lightweight matchup at the co-main event of UFC 282. ‘The Baddy’ was awarded a unanimous decision win against ‘Flash’ after fighting for three rounds.

In a recent interview with TMZSports, Jared Gordon called out the Liverpudlian for a rematch. ‘Flash’ even agreed to fight ‘The Baddy’ at the upcoming UFC pay-per-view in London next year.

Gordon said:

“The Paddy fans, all the Scousers messaging me, ‘Hey, I am from Liverpool. I’m a Paddy fan but you won. Got a new fan of me.’ So, you know I could like complain about it and be bitter, you know, publicly and sob. But I am gonna take it in stride and…I would love a rematch. I will go to London to fight him.”

Prior to his fight against the Liverpudlian, ‘Flash’ took on Leonardo Santos at UFC 278 and secured a decision win over the Brazilian. He is currently on a one-fight losing streak in the UFC and holds a pro record of 19 wins and six losses.
