According to Networth & SalaryPimblett has a net worth of around $1-5 Million US dollars as of 2022. This is thanks in part to his successful career in the UFC, where he has earned over $100,000 in prize money alone. He also earns a healthy salary from sponsorships and other income sources.
Pimblett got his start in professional fighting in 2012, when he fought for OMMAC against Nathan Thompson. Paddy ‘The Baddy’ took the win in his first-ever fight via TKO in the first round.
Pimblett joined the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship promotion in 2013, where he won his first fight against Florian Calin before losing the first contest of his professional MMA career against Cameron Else at CWFC 60 in October 2013.

Pimblett vs. Vargas
Pimblett has promised fans that his entrance for the event will be memorable. Speaking to SportsMail, he said: “A fight is a fight for me lad. It doesn’t matter where it is at the end of the day. Obviously, it is going to be great when I walk out, because Vargas is never going to have been in an atmosphere like that.
“He’s going to be like ‘What is going on here, this is a festival,’ this is like a festival with everyone screaming his name, that’s going to get to him. That’ll happen wherever I fight now when there’s a crowd.
“It’s going to be the greatest entrance the UFC has ever seen and it isn’t even a title fight or contender fight. People will be talking about this entrance for the next 10-20 years.”
Paddy Pimblett is undoubtedly one of the brightest young stars in mixed martial arts, and with his success in the UFC, he is likely that he will continue to earn huge amounts of money from sponsorships and other income sources over the next few years.
