Oh Paddy the Baddy chant
Before Paddy even enters the stage, fans are heard crying out, “Oh, Paddy the Baddy” on repeat.
It’s a common rhyming used by Englishmen in all kinds of sports, but mainly soccer (football).
The style of the chant gets used most often in praising a footballer or teasing them in jest.
Lethal Industry by Tiësto
Paddy Pimblett’s walkout song starts out with Lethal Industry by Tiesto (Spotify) as the lights dim low in the arena.
Usually, Paddy lets this part play through fully before entering the tunnel or arena because the crowd is hyped up for his whole entrance with the next song.
Fans are heard singing along to the electronic beats of this song, “Do de de da, Do de de da, do de da do de da” until he appears.
Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
When Paddy enters the arena, suddenly, there’s a record-scratching sound, and the song switches to Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Spotify).
Just watch the excitement that fills the arena experiencing his full mashup:
There are two versions of Heads Will Roll inside Paddy’s entire walkout music:
- Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) — Listen on Spotify
- Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Dub Remix) — Spotify
The entire mashup moves into the A-Trak Remix as the second song choice and later mixes between these two versions frequently.
Where’s Your Head At by Basement Jaxx
The mashup for Paddy’s walkout then introduces Where’s Your Head at, the Martin Ikin Remix, by Basement Jaxx (Spotify).
While the mashup usually doesn’t get this far before the next fighter entrance starts or the commentary starts again, it can be heard on the full remix:
Paddy has used this same playlist for all his UFC walkouts, including:
- Jared Gordon at UFC 282
- Jordan Leavitt at UFC Fight Night 208 (held at the O2 Arena in London)
- Rodrigo Vargas at UFC Fight Night 204 (also held at the O2 in London)
- Luigi Vendramini at UFC Fight Night 191 (Paddy’s first UFC fight)
Love him or hate him, Paddy the Paddy has an iconic UFC walkout song and a charismatic personality that’s gaining him huge amounts of attention.
He’s become one of the hottest prospects in the Lightweight weight class, even if he might not have the skills to truly become a champion yet.
