The British UFC star uses a reference to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 to taunt his next opponent: Jordan Leavitt. Do you know what a “tea bag” is?
Video games have transcended our popular culture. It is common that, on occasions, we use phrases or terms related to our favorite games to exemplify a situation. It is the case of Paddy Pimblett.
In the UFC it is common for fighters to star intense press conferences. Of course, this includes reproaches, humiliating comments and even insults.
Paddy Pimblett is one of the British stars of the UFC. His talent and abilities are well known, although some believe that he is not yet up to the greatest. His next fight (UFC Fight Night 208) will be against Jordan Leavitt.

The British fighter is somewhat “scorched” with Leavitt. The fight was announced in May, and in the press conference Leavitt stated that he was NOT impressed with Pimblett’s abilities.
To further set Paddy on fire, Leavitt confirmed that he would twerk by defeating the Brit in combat. And this has not sat well with Pimblett, as you can see in the following statements…
”I’m going to give her a teabag, man. I’m going to make a teabag as if it were Modern Warfare 2…I will crouch as close to his head as I can while the referee yells at me. I’ll squat up and down like I’m in Modern Warfare 2”.
What is a tea bag? The term “tea bag” is well known in the Call of Duty community.and is mainly used to humiliate other players in multiplayer FPS games.
We won’t go into detail, but “teabaging” (a common action in online shooters) is a way of humiliating… placing the genitals in the face of the rival player.
Somehow, Paddy Pimblett Says He Will Teabag Leavitt when he wins the match, which will not only piss off the fighter quite a bit, but also references one of the best-known video games, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
This year will be very special for Modern Warfare 2. Although it will not be a remake of the modern classic from 2009, the sequel to Modern Warfare (2019) will be released on October 28.
Have you ever had or suffered from a teabag? It is a very common action in the online sphere, seen in sagas such as Call of Duty, Battlefield or Halo. Of course, those games of Modern Warfare 2 perfectly define what a ”tea bag” is.
