Sean O'Malley recently weighed in on T.J. Dillashaw's advice to Paddy Pimblett regarding the lightweight fighter gaining weight in between bouts.

Pimblett bloats up significantly after his fights. Dillashaw addressed the same in a recent interview and stated that a UFC fighter should take better care of their body if they're to become a champion. However, 'The Baddy' didn't like what the former bantamweight champion had to say and clapped back at him. 'Sugar' addressed the situation on The BrO'Malley Show and stated that Dillashaw is right in his advice:

"I see T.J. talking s**t about Paddy being fat as f**k and all that stuff. Paddy obviously, in his perspective, he's getting attacked. He's gonna go attack T.J. saying you were the one selling fat T.J. t-shirts. I think in T.J.'s perspective, he's a vet... He's been around the game longer than Paddy. He's been the champ. He's made mistakes. Now I think he eats healthy. But still juices. Vegetables. But, he was probably kind of offering an advice for Paddy. He didn't say it in the nicest words... But I think taking care of your body and not getting that big is important."

Dillashaw is coming off a win against Cory Sandhagen in his last fight as the former champion made his return from suspension. He might take on bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling next. Meanwhile, Pimblett returns on July 23 at UFC London against Jordan Leavitt.
