The U.K. UFC star on Wednesday responded to Dillashaw’s recent comments about his off-season behavior, calling attention to the ex-champ’s history with weight and performance-enhancing drugs.
Pimblett called Dillashaw a “cheating little juice head” who would “never have won a belt without them steroids” and added, “u [sic] f****** mushroom.”

Dillashaw, who indeed sold a t-shirt poking fun at his off-season weight, criticized Pimblett for gaining huge amounts of weight between fights, saying the UFC featherweight is “just loving diabetes” and is on the road to destroying his body.
“They can promote him the right way and do all this good stuff, and he’s got some stuff to grow and get into the higher echelons of the UFC, but if you keep that same work ethic that he has now, he’ll never be a champion,” Dillashaw said on “The Schaub Show.”
“You can’t have that down time like that. You can’t get that fat. You can’t get out of shape. It just kind of proves the dedication to what you need to do. And no, I’m not trying to pound on him or anything, but that’s something I think he’s going to have to figure out with age, right? He’s young. … It’s a full-time job, bro. This isn’t just wanting to be a fighter – you have to be a fighter.”
