This didn't last very long, Turner was finding his range as long as the fight went on, and when he did he put our Green BADLY. Sadly the referee was horrible at his job and Green took so many more shots than necessary pic.twitter.com/Iqp6JFJw94 — PantojaGOAT (@Pantoja_GOAT) December 3, 2023
Jalin Turner’s post fight interview
During the post-fight interview, Jalin Turner shared his thoughts on claiming a shocking win against Bobby Green. “At the end of the day, it’s bittersweet because me and Bobby come from the same area,” Turner said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“We grew up in the same area and that’s what made it tough. But at the end of the day, it’s also business and you’ve got to see the business opportunities. I’m a businessman, an independent contractor, so I’ve got to go handle business when it’s attended to me.
They put me in the position because they knew I’ve got the name now. I’ve got a little hype. I always go and put on a show. I’m a businessman. I handle what I have to do for the promotion. Look what happened”.
Turner further said: “The ref, he just didn’t see. … I don’t know, bro. I don’t know what to call it, he just waited until Bobby was out. Bobby is tough. Bobby is a really tough fighter. When I was punching him, he was defending them, and he was moving.
He was still a bit coherent. I was like, ‘Dang.’ I was like, ‘Maybe this should be stopped. Maybe not.’ I’m not going to stop until you pull me off because it’s him or me”.
