Bobby Green (23-5) has been riding a massive wave of success since mid 2011.
The wave has brought him 8 straight victories and he just got done winning the biggest fight of his career, defeating Josh Thomson at UFC on Fox 12 via split decision.
Green was slated to face “The Cowboy” Donald Cerrone but that was before Eddie Alvarez came over from Bellator.
In the hoopla before their formally announced bout, Bobby met Donald in a public setting and in a recent interview he told about his encounter with Cerrone.
“Obviously, I had some bad blood with Cerrone, but I’m a company dude, you know?” said Green “I was originally meant to face Abel Trujillo, then I get a fight with Masvidal and then Cerrone. It felt like I was getting rag dolled. I’m the little guy, this doesn’t happen to Jones or Cerrone. I’m just trying to get money. I’m good.
“Cerrone feels like he is untouchable, he is just the most obnoxious a–hole I’ve ever met. He was so rude and all that, saying ‘you don’t want to strike with me’ and all that. He said some racist stuff, like ‘you know how black people like to steal,’ and this was in front of like loads of people. I was laughing it off, but the real dude inside of me was like ‘I don’t let that s— slide.’
“He was being obnoxious, he was groping every woman in this place. They got husbands and boyfriends and he was just groping these girls in front of them. He was grabbing these girls’ asses like ‘what are they gonna do to me.’ He disrespected me and I really don’t like him now. It’s my time to get even with him.”
If Cerrone, who is on a 4 fight winning streak, can get past his co-main event bout Eddie Alvarez at UFC 178 then a bout with Bobby Green will likely happen.
Bobby is also set to fight on the card against Jorge Masvidal.
