Ilia Topuria attacks Paddy Pimblett at fighter hotel over Russia, Georgia insult (Video)

Ilia Topuria attacked Paddy Pimblett at fighter hotel over Russia, Georgia insult.

Ilia Topuria is still mad about a comment Paddy Pimblett made during a Twitter exchange back in April 2021 and he took his anger out on the fighter in the UFC London hotel.

The moment was caught on film and shared by Topuria.

Pimblett replied to the video writing, “Imagine trying to jump someone on their own with 5 of your boys & you dont land a single shot & get a bottle of hand sanitizer bounced off your head you little don’t try to act big like you did something when you your pants pretending ur boys was holding u back pussy.”

The anger stems from a comment Pimblett made about Topuria’s home country of Georgia.

“Lad how stupid are these Georgians man, no wonder the Russians terrorise their lives,” Pimblett wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

What the British fighter (and many fans) didn’t realize was how raw the insult would be. Georgia was invaded by Russia on August 1, 2008, and a war ensued much like what is happening in Ukraine right now. The ramifications of that war still ripple through the country that is now standing with Ukraine in their own fight, a terrible reminder of their own country’s struggles.

Russia country still occupies somewhere between 20 and 30 percent of the country.
