Pimblett is the one-time Cage Warriors featherweight champion, who has become a self-made star with his exciting fighting style and his charisma on the microphone. Pimblett finally made his long-awaited UFC debut this past September, stopping Luigi Vendramini in the first round and taking home a Performance of the Night bonus for his troubles.
Unlike Pimblett, Vargas does not enter into this fight with a ton of hype behind him. The 36-year old Mexican fighter has been with the UFC since 2019, when he started his run with the promotion with back-to-back losses. Vargas was able to right the ship in his most recent fight however, winning a unanimous decision over Rong Zhu at UFC 261.
