UFC star Paddy Pimblett is apparently not happy with Cristiano Ronaldo. The UFC star, in his recent interview, talked about Ronaldo and how the Portuguese star thinks he is above Manchester United.

“I’ve seen little snippets of it but he thinks he’s bigger than the club. No one is bigger than the club. He’s a proper raging helmet,” Paddy noted.

Interestingly, Pimblett is a hardcore Liverpool FC fan and hopes to see the UFC hosting an event in Anfield which is the home ground of the football club.

Speaking further, Paddy noted that Argentina has a chance to win the World Cup this time around. He also had high praise for Lionel Messi, who is leading Argentina in the World Cup which is happening in Qatar.

“I think it’s written in the stars for Argentina to win it. (Lionel Messi) has played 993 professional games so if he gets to the final. I think he is the best ever player in history. You’d also have to put Kenny (Dalglish) in there 100 per cent, possibly the best ever player to have played for Liverpool,” Paddy noted.
