Sean O’Malley recently weighed in on TJ Dillashaw’s advice to Paddy Pimblett regarding the lightweight fighter gaining weight between fights.
Pimblett swells considerably after his fights. Dillashaw addressed the same thing in a recent interview and said a UFC fighter should take better care of his body if he wants to become a champion. However, ‘The Baddy’ didn’t like what the former bantamweight champion had to say and clapped back. ‘Sugar’ addressed the situation on The BrO’Malley Show and said Dillashaw was correct in his advice:
“I see TJ talking bullshit about Paddy being big as shit and all that. Paddy obviously from his point of view he’s getting attacked. He’s going to attack TJ saying you’re the one selling big TJ t-shirts I think from TJ’s point of view he’s a vet… He’s been in the game longer than Paddy He was the champ He made mistakes Now I thinks he eats healthy. But always juices. Vegetables. But, it was probably nice to give Paddy some advice. He didn’t say it in the nicest words… But I think he’s important to take care of your body and not to gain weight.”

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