Paddy Pimblett went on a rant from his hospital bed following ankle surgery.

Pimblett suffered the injury in the first round of his fight against Jared Gordon last December at UFC 282 but only underwent surgery recently. Pimblett edged Gordon out in a fight that was dubbed as controversial by many, including Gordon.

Pimblett (20-3 MMA, 4-0 UFC) vows he would have had a much better performance if it wasn’t for his ankle, taking aim at Gordon’s post-fight outrage.

“When I told them (doctors) it happened in the first round of the fight within the first minute, and they said, ‘Oh, did your fight finish there?’ And I was like, ‘No, I done another two-and-a-half rounds.’ They were like, ‘What?'” Pimblett said on his YouTube channel. “They said, ‘You should’ve just sat on your stool and never carried on fighting.’

“I was like, ‘Are you mad? Do you think I’m some p*ssy?’ People are like, ‘Oh, Jared Gordon did so well.’ He only done well because me ankle was f*cked, you stupid tw*t. And he’s just being a bitter little girl, going on every interview site, ‘Oh, I won that fight. I won that fight.’ Well, lad, Joe Solecki beat you, but you got a split decision, so shut your mouth.”

Gordon went on Twitter to respond to Pimblett, claiming that he too had an ankle injury.

“Funny thing is going into this fight I had an ankle injury as well, documented by UFC. I couldn’t walk for weeks after our fight too. I get why he’s angry. He knows I won. Like the rest of the world…”

Now that Pimblett has repaired his ankle, “The Baddy” wants to run things back with Gordon (19-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC), who’s slated to fight Bobby Green on April 22 at UFC Fight Night 222.

“Yeah, I want to punch his head in towards the end of the year,” Pimblett said. “I am going to run it back. I hope he beats Bobby Green, because I’ll snap his arm for him in a round. Had a boxing match with him, and I still won, because you’re sh*t. I hope he watches this. You’re f*cking dog sh*t. At my worst, you couldn’t beat me at your best. Injured, everything going wrong, and you couldn’t beat me on my worst day, and I beat you on your best because you’re a little bum.”
