Paddy Pimblett has piled on so many pounds since his UFC London victory that he is not only heavier than Tommy Fury, but almost too heavy to fight three weights up at light-heavyweight having promised to keep on top of his poundage.
The UFC lightweight star weighed in at 155lbs on the eve of his submission triumph over Rodrigo Vargas – and has now shared details of his mammoth weight gain on YouTube just two weeks later.
The Baddy, who titled his latest upload 'Paddy The Fatty Is BACK', stepped on the scales in his gym having tackled ice cream and pancakes as part of his food binges in excess of 10,000 calories a day since his latest MMA win.
He told Daily Star Sport before and after his fight that he would not be repeating the 40lbs weight gain that saw him balloon to 195lb, but this time he has gone even further.
Pimblett jumped on the scales this week and it showed him to be weighing 201lbs, just two weeks after his weight had dropped back down to 155lbs – fair heavier than Fury's career heaviest of 189lbs.
That is a weight gain of 46lbs, which works out as 21 kilograms and just over three stone.
He says during the video: "I am eating like a king. Resting that ACL lad getting fat." Adding: "That belly is back."

He told Daily Star Sport after his fight: "I had a little two weeks off last time, but I'm getting back in the gym in the morning (March 24) so I won't be too fat.
"(But) I eat so many calories it's unbelievable. On Monday I actually gauged what I ate.
"And I had 10,700 calories. And that's without me doing a food challenge. That's just be being a fat b******."
Taking part in his press conference after coming back from adversity to see off the threat of Vargas at The O2, Pimblett tucked into a full pizza and addressed a question regarding his figure.
He said: "I'd rather be fat and happy than ripped.
"These people who are ripped all year round aren't happy. I'm not ar***, I don't care what they say. This six-pack is sound and I look great, but I'd rather be fat and happy."
