UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett challenges 10 US Marines

Professional UFC fighter Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett tries a different method of training when he visits the USMC martial arts program at Camp Pendleton in San Diego. Here he participates in combat conditioning training for the US Marines stationed there. The challenging circuit, consisting of push-ups, battle ropes, lunge jumps and squats, pushes Buddy to the limits of his abilities.

Bady vs the rest

After a short break, the roles are reversed. Now Pemblet must introduce the Marines to his world with a crash course in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. After a short instruction, it’s time to try out new techniques and Buddy introduces himself as a willing victim. Although… Paddy managed – though exhausted from circuit training – to stop all the Marines. “I had to run five kilometers today. But I won’t do that anymore,” Buddy says with a laugh. “This was one of the hardest workouts of my life, you idiots!”

Later in the video, Pemblet talks about how important his family and friends are to him when it comes to maintaining his mental health. He also argues again the importance of being open about your mental issues. This is a message close to Paddy’s heart that he also announced at UFC London in July. After dedicating his victory to his missing friend, he took the opportunity here to encourage boys and men to tell their stories and stop talking about depression.
