Bobby Green Comments on Brutal Knockout Defeat
By FCF Staff
Following Bobby Green’s brutal loss at UFC Austin, the lightweight contender has commented on the much-discussed defeat.
Green was knocked out by Jalin Turner in the opening round of the fight, which took place on Saturday. Since the fight could have been stopped before Turner’s strikes rendered Green unconscious, referee Kerry Hatley has been widely criticized.
But, according to a report from MMA Fighting, Green did not mention the fight’s final moments while commenting on it via an Instagram story.
“What up, guys?” Green said. “You win some, you lose some. I guess I want to show people that you’ve got to keep it G and you’ve got to keep it G when you lose.
“Shout out to Jalin, you did your thing, brother. I’m so happy for you. It means the world that you stepped up on short notice and you had your success, so shout out to you. To all my people, it’s just another step in the thing, you know. Another step in the career. There’s ups, there’s downs, I’m a keep it going. I’m not going nowhere. Love you, guys.”
The 37-year-old Green (31-15-1) was supposed to fight Dan Hooker at UFC Austin. But, the latter was forced to withdraw due to an arm injury.
Green had gone undefeated in three straight fights before Saturday. Turner (13-7) was coming off a split-decision loss to Hooker in July.
