Paddy Pimblett has re-signed with Cage Warriors despite the calls for him to feature on the upcoming UFC Liverpool card.
Cage Warriors announced that “The Baddy” would headline the promotion’s return to the Echo Arena on Sept. 1 via press release during the Super Saturday broadcast. The promotion also announced a return to The Indigo at the 02 in London on Jul. 21.
According to the press release, Pimblett “remains determined to carry out his mission to reclaim a Cage Warriors world title by signing a new multi-fight deal with [Graham] Boylan’s promotion.”
Pimblett’s opponent has yet to be announced. The press release states that it remains undecided if Pimblett will compete for a promotional title at the event.
The Next Generation fighter revealed that he had no interest in competing at the UFC Liverpool event on the latest episode of The MMA Hour.
“I’m not that arsed to be fair, about the UFC in Liverpool,” Pimblett said. “I’ve headlined shows there twice and I just fought there the other week. It’s great for UK MMA and great for Liverpool, but the show is for Darren [Till]. Darren can have his show, I’m good — I’ll have my own one in September.”
