Paddy Pimblett taps out 10 Marines in a row as he displays submission skills
UFC star Paddy Pimblett showed what he is made off, after tapping out 10 US Marines in a row at a military base in San Diego. Pimblett shared his trip to the base via a YouTube video uploaded to his channel which has over 400,000 subscribers.
The Liverpudlian began the clip – which has been viewed over 1.8 million times in just two days – by revealing he was heading in to take part in a gruelling fitness session with the group of Marines. He was no doubt put through his paces as he took part in the 'combat conditioning'.
However, he finally got his chance to shine when he took charge of the group to run a jiu jitsu session before taking the marines on in a grapple on the gym floor.

With Pimblett starting, the group took part in a 'winner stays on' battle but the Marines found it impossible to knock the UFC sensation out of the game. He remarkably went on to force 10 straight Marines to tap out, submitting each with his flawless MMA skillset.
After his stunning moves, the UFC star said: "I have the balance of a ballerina but I weigh like a sumo wrestler," he said. "I'm a weirdo, f***ing hell, lads, you've made me do a big crazy circuit and then I've rolled with every one of you, what the f***, boys?
"I'm meant to be doing a three-mile run today, it's not happening now, lad this has been one of my hardest workouts this week you gang of big b******s. I don't know what the f*** made me want to do this," before his defeated opponents broke into laughter.

After their grapple, Pimblett sat down with the Marine members for a question and answer session that was also included in the YouTube video.
In it, the fighter is asked who his biggest supporters were when going through mental health problems, and he paid tribute to his family, friends teammates and fiancee.
He said: "My friends, my family, my teammates, my fiancee – all the people closest to me. I've said it plenty of times, without them I don't know if I'd still be here now, I've had some dark times myself and I have questioned a lot of things in my own head, whether I'd do this or do that and I wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for those close to me.
"You know that saying 'get it off your chest'? It's real. I was at the end of 2018 and I got in a proper bad place, waking up crying every morning. The missus would get up and go to work and I'd normally just roll over and go asleep, I was rolling over and just crying for like an hour every day, I had to get over that and to get through it I had to speak to people."
