Paddy Pimblett’s debut on Ultimate was surrounded by expectations. And the 25-year-old athlete did not disappoint. Touted as a kind of “English McGregor”, for his aggressiveness and provocative style, “The Baddy” beat Brazilian Luigi Vendramini by technical knockout with 4m21s of combat. The performance was crowned with the “Performance of the Night” award, in the amount of US$ 50 thousand (approximately R$ 260 thousand), granted by the organization.

Khalil Rountree also stood out in the event by using a move with little technique, but with a high degree of danger to the opponent. He landed a stomp on the knee of Modestas Bukauskas who, unable to continue the match, made the referee declare victory by technical knockout at 2.30m of the second round.
