As seen in a recent video posted to his YouTube channel, popular UFC lightweight Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett traveled to San Diego to take part in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, teach Brazilian jiujitsu, talk mental health with the Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton, and kick a few of their asses.

Renowned for his trademark haircut, scouser accent, and advocacy for mental health care, Pimblett is a current rising star in the UFC, with a professional mixed martial arts record of 19-3, nine of those wins coming by way of submission. The charismatic Liverpudlian joined Marines at Camp Pendleton for an intensive session of combat conditioning followed by a class on Brazilian jiujitsu led by Pimblett himself.

The culminating and most impressive event featured in the video took place just after the jiujitsu lessons, when Pimblett successfully tapped out 10 Marines in a row without taking a break — a truly impressive feat for a young professional fighter.

Following a full morning of brutal conditioning and grappling, Pimblett sat down for a brief Q&A session with the Marines, during which they discussed everything from battling mental health issues to guidance for those interested in becoming professional fighters. The best question of the Q&A came from a curious Marine who asked the visibly exhausted fighter what made him want to come train with Marines. Pimblett lightheartedly replied, “I don’t know what the fuck made me want to do this.”
