AEW World Champion MJF was recently interviewed by ESPN to talk about a variety of professional wrestling topics, including his recent online feud with Paddy Pimblett.
During the interview, MJF teased appearing at UFC 282 to confront Pimblett after the UFC star has been talking trash to the Salt of the Earth on Twitter.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On a possible appearance at UFC 282:
“I wouldn’t be shocked if the AEW world champion shows up on Dec. 10 in Vegas.”
On his back-and-forth with Pimblett on Twitter:
“I’m sick and tired of people talking about pro wrestling as if it’s some f**king stunt show. The fact of the matter is Paddy ‘The Prima Donna’ Pimblett would not last two seconds in a professional wrestling ring with me. Maybe not even one… “This fat, moon-faced prick, Will-from-Stranger-Things-looking a–hole dollar store Conor McGregor decided he needed to chirp up and say, ‘Oh, wrestling is fake.’ Let me tell you something. We are real fighters. They are prima donnas.”
On a possible confrontation with Pimblett:
“Pro wrestling is a dangerous, dangerous sport, and there is no one more dangerous than MJF. I can assure you when we come to London in 2023, if Paddy shows his face, he’s going to find out that a Scouser [a native or inhabitant of Liverpool, England] is no match for a Long Islander. Because I’m better than him and he knows it. There’s a target on my back at all times. Like I said, if ‘Paddy the Baddy’ thinks he can aim at that target and hit it, I am more than game. More than game to knock that guy out.”
