Chael Sonnen perplexed by the UFC’s decision to have Bobby Green fight Islam Makhachev at a catchweight: “The whole thing is just goofy”

Harry Kettle - February 21, 2022

MMA analyst Chael Sonnen has questioned the UFC’s decision to make Islam Makhachev vs Bobby Green a catchweight bout. This Saturday night at UFC Vegas 49, Bobby Green will get his main event opportunity on short notice when he locks horns with Islam Makhachev. The Russian star was initially supposed to take on Beneil Dariush but after an injury ruled the latter out, Green decided to step up to the plate and take a chance on himself.

Michael Bisping explains why "there's a good chance" Bobby Green beats Islam Makhachev

Cole Shelton - February 18, 2022

Even though Bobby Green is taking a fight against Islam Makhachev on 10 days’ notice, Michael Bisping believes there’s a good chance “King” gets his hand raised. Green defeated Nasrat Haqparast by decision at UFC 271 on February 12 and not even a week later, he agreed to headline UFC Vegas 49 on February 19 as he will take on Islam Makhachev. He’s a massive underdog heading into the fight and not many are giving Green a chance, but Bisping believes the longtime UFC veteran has all the tools to upset Makhachev.

Fiziev vs. Green was a fantastic lightweight battle that won “Fight of the Night” honors on a card full of great fights. While Fiziev was correctly deemed the winner of the bout after winning the first two rounds of the fight, there was some controversy when one of the judges scored the bout 30-27 in Fiziev’s favor, even though round three was a clear Green round. Although the good news is that the right fighter got his hand raised, MMA fans and media were up in arms about the 30-27 scorecard that didn’t give Green any credit.

Bobby Green Trashes the Current State of UFC Judging

Justin Golightly - October 11, 2017

After an incredible Fight of the Night at UFC 216 between Lando Vannata and Bobby Green, the judges awarded it a draw. At the time, it didn’t matter to those two warriors. It may still not. They both lifted their hands and embraced, knowing that they just put on the fight of their lives. Bobby Green may not have an issue with the result, but he does have a few words to say about the current state of judging in the UFC. “I don’t feel like we have good judges. I can’t even care what the judges think. Sometimes, they’re totally on, and sometimes, they’re totally off. That’s the way it is in our sport. We don’t get enough credit for who’s pressing the action. A lot of times, one guy chases the other guy around, and he ticks and tacks and runs, but he doesn’t get the credit for being the aggressor. Even though we say we judge upon aggression and cage control, they don’t give enough credit to those things. Because if I don’t push the fight, there is no fight. We’ll just be standing there looking at each other. But nobody understands that. Until you’ve fought, you wouldn’t understand that.”
