Paddy Pimblett had a near-perfect UFC debut on Saturday night. He went up against Luigi Vendramini on the main card of UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Till and secured a first-round KO.

'Scouser' is a local British term used in Liverpool, UK. The term allegedly is a contraction of a popular dish named 'lobscouse,' a meat and vegetable stew consumed by sailors dating back to the 19th century. With the Port of Liverpool being an important maritime hub, the term caught up with locals. Present-day Liverpudlians often refer to themselves as 'Scousers.' The accent and dialect of the English language unique to Liverpool and surrounding areas are often referred to by the term 'Scouse' as well.

In the post-fight octagon interview with Michael Bisping, Paddy Pimblett was reminded of what happened in the bout. 'The Count' pointed out that 'The Baddy' almost got knocked out early on with a left hook from Luigi Vendramini. However, Paddy Pimblett reminded Bisping that he was a 'scouser' and that they didn't get knocked out.

"You know my saying, lad. I'm a scouser. We don't get knocked out. I take that sh*t all day," Paddy Pimblett said.

Paddy Pimblett: "I'm here to take over"

The British lightweight was rocked early in the fight with a big left hand.

Pimblett had to defend himself on the ground for the next half minute as Vendramini executed an excellent takedown followed by ground and pound. However, 'The Baddy' managed to get the better of his opponent in the final minute of the first round. He first rocked Vendramini with a combination and then followed up with a knee and a flurry of punches against the fence.

Pimblett secured a first-round knockout victory.

In the post-fight octagon interview, Paddy Pimblett issued a statement to his fellow UFC lightweights in a Conor McGregor-esque promo.

"I'm here to take over, lad. I'm the new cash cow. I'm the new main man on the UFC roster. I best be in the game next week lad, that's simple. I'm the new man, lad. People are going to be calling me out now, they know who the boy is," Paddy Pimblett said.
