Jordan Leavitt promises to 'twerk' for London crowd should he beat Paddy Pimblett in July

Jordan Leavitt and Paddy Pimblett are scheduled to clash in July, in what is bound to be a spectacular fight in London.

When it comes to entertaining the crowd around the octagon, Paddy Pimblett and Jordan Leavitt are two of the best in the business.

Not only do both fighters produce stunning stoppages in their fights, but both are known for their wild celebrations afterwards.

Pimblett was able to get the London crowd on their feet in his last fight there, when the 27-year-old submitted Rodrigo Vargas inside four minutes of the first round.

With a return to London now scheduled for July 23, Pimblett has already expressed his excitement at the chance to extend his 2-0 record in the UFC.

But without doubt the Liverpool star's toughest fight will be against Leavitt, who boasts a 10-1 record throughout his career, including a 2-1 record in the UFC.

Leavitt will enter as the underdog for July's event, but the 27-year-old is relishing the chance to silence the crowd by defeating Paddy 'The Baddy' in the octagon.

"I'm kind of excited, 'cause they're gonna get quiet when I finish the fight.

"And they're probably gonna riot when I throw a twerk on them.

"So I'm excited, I'm really excited to meet him. I think he's hilarious, I think the fight's gonna be a lot of fun, and I'm intrigued to see how it's gonna go."

Not only did Leavitt back himself to thrive inside the octagon, but the American fighter believes he is also the better performer outside of it too.

When asked who has the better moves between himself and Pimblett, he replied:

"It's gonna be, man. I just have better rhythm, I'm a little bit more loose," said Leavitt. "But he's got the spirit. He's a bit confused, but he's got the spirit. I kinda dig it."

One thing for sure is that the fight will guarantee drama. Pimblett hasn't even entered the second round of either of his UFC fights so far, while Leavitt also has a submission on his UFC record, after his victory over Trey Ogden in April.
