Over the Weekend, Pro Wrestling star Maxwell Jacob Friedman, better known to wrestling fans as MJF, defeated Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship. On Tuesday, he was engaged in a war of words with British UFC fighter Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett.
I’ll fuck the Conor clone up.
Then I’ll wipe my ass with the original.
Stay in your lane you roided up leprechaun.
You can’t hang with the @AEW World Champion. #Betterthanyou https://t.co/X6CPxoKwFT

Both men went back and forth over Twitter, with Pimblett saying he would take on the Champion when AEW heads over to London next year. Pimblett also said that he thought the wrestling star wouldn’t be able to pass a USADA drug test. MJF fired back that he is not only 100% natural but also 100% original, unlike the Liverpudlian, which he called “A dollar store Conor McGregor.” It didn’t take long for the former UFC Champion to join in.
In an interview with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, MJF said that he wouldn’t be shocked if the AEW Champion showed up at UFC 282 on December 10 (December 11 in Australia). In the same interview, he also said that he was sick of people talking about pro wrestling as if it’s some sort of stunt show.
Will MJF show up in Las Vegas next month? Or will he and ‘The Baddy’ meet in the centre of an AEW ring when the company goes across the pond next year? People will have to tune in and find out.
