Pimblett also managed to secure a victory over his opponent via a unanimous decision. But, a lot of noted fight personalities and fans came up with their opinion that the victory was incorrectly awarded to Pimblett.
The UFC color commentator, Joe Rogan, also called it a close fight, and Pimblett was disgusted by it.
Pimblett replied to Joe Rogan instantly that to him, it wasn’t a close fight. ‘The Baddy’ implied that he had won the fight comfortably enough.

In his interview with Bronsteter, Pimblett also compared the faces of him and Gordon in justification of his victory. He showed a minor cut he sustained inside his mouth and compared it to Gordon’s face, which at one time was leaking blood.
He said, “A little cut inside. But look at my face. And look at his face. There’s a big difference. I can’t believe”.
He then moved on to the Joe Rogan chapter and said, “I’m pretty pissed off, to be honest, like Joe Rogan come in and say that was a close fight”. He also stated, “What do you want about that was a close fight?”. Like the previous time, he once more revolted against ‘the former martial artist’.
