Lightweight star Paddy Pimblett and featherweight Ilia Topuria have a history and it boiled over during the UFC 282 Pre-fight Press Conference on Thursday. In short, Pimblett insulted Topuria’s Georgian countrymen on social media and Topuria vowed to confront the Brit when he saw him. During the UFC London fight week in March, Topuria lived up to his word and punched Pimblett in a hotel lobby. During Thursday’s press conference in Las Vegas, security had to get between the two as they engaged in a heated exchange of words. Watch the altercation below
