Last Saturday we watched UFC Fight Night 229 at UFC Apex and the main fight of the evening was between Bobby Green and Grant Dawson. Before the fight, both fighters announced a good match with which the audience will be satisfied.

However, the match lasted exactly 33 seconds, because Green brutally knocked out Dawson at the very beginning of the match. Green himself was surprised that everything ended so quickly, so he seemed confused at the press conference after the match.

Of course, he thanked his team and colleagues for a very good training camp. This win secured him the number next to his name that he will likely get this week. Bobby believes that soon the UFC should give him a fight for the belt.

“I’m in sniper range,” Green said during a post-fight news conference. “Don’t think I can’t go get that title. I can go get the title. I’m just a fun kid who’s like, ‘Hey, I’m just happy-go-lucky.’ I’m here, I’m there.

I just pop up wherever they put me. “UFC guys are the story writers. Sean Shelby, Dana White. They’re writing the story. Whoever they put is how the story gets written. So, you talk to them and tell them, and we’ll figure it out.

If they want to put me towards the title, that’s awesome. I’m in sniper range now. It’s getting real close”.

Green's trainers would love to see their fighter against Dan Hooker

This truly great fighter said that he never chose his opponents and that he wanted to fight all the time.

He emphasized that he wants to fight already in December in order to officially be the most active fighter. “They want me to fight Hooker,” Green said. “I’m like, ‘OK.’ If Hooker’s down, I’m down.

I’m down to even headline the prelims. I know the cards got so stacked up. I just got to go check out my hand a little bit. I started slamming them little hammerfists. … If I’m good, I want to fight in December.

I want to be the most active fighter this year”. as quoted by MMAJunkie
