Steamrolled by Islam Makhachev

Green lost to Islam Makhachev via TKO (punches) at 3:23 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Green has been good soldier for the UFC for a really long time, and it was nice to see him get this opportunity and a big payday, but he fought exactly two weeks ago and was going up against a guy who is probably the best lightweight in the world today. In short, it simply wasn't going to happen. Green remained upright for about two minutes before Makhachev forced him to the mat and worked to a dominant position where he could finish the fight. Green has always been an underrated wrestler, but he's not on the level of Islam, and no one else may be either. Green is still immensely popular and should continue to get notable fights moving forward, although he did mention earlier in the week that this was the final fight of his current contract. Green will turn 36 years of age this coming September.
Stepping in to face Makhachev
LightweightUFC
February 16, 2022
Green has agreed to face Islam Makhachev in a 160-pound catchweight fight for the main event at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 26 in Las Vegas, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Green is only a couple days removed from defeating Nasrat Haqparast via unanimous decision at UFC 271 on Saturday, but he'll quickly return to the Octagon after Beneil Dariush (ankle) was forced to withdraw from the Feb. 26 card. Makhachev has won nine straight bouts with has last loss coming in 2015 and is pushing for a title shot, so Green will be a heavy underdog while taking another fight on short notice.
Easily handles Nasrat Haqparast
LightweightUFC
February 12, 2022
Green defeated Nasrat Haqparast via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC 271 on Saturday in Houston.
ANALYSIS
Green's past two bouts have been arguably the most impressive of his long UFC run. Fresh off a first-round knockout win over Al Iaquinta last November, Green really put it on Haqparast for the entire 15-minute bout here. Bobby has overwhelming confidence in his hand speed and his ability to overwhelm his opposition on the feet and that's exactly how this one played out. Green was credited with 188 significant strikes landed compared to just 76 from Haqparast. Green is also a very good wrestler, although he rarely uses those skills. That Iaquinta victory is Green's only stoppage victory dating back to November 2013 and that could easily become an issue when he begins facing better competition, but few could have seen this late-career resurgence from Green coming. He's earned a big fight his next time out.

Green has been added as the replacement for John Makdessi (hamstring) on the Feb. 12 card versus Nasrat Haqparast, MMA writer Walter Salcido reports.
ANALYSIS
Green has a little over a month to get ready for the clash as the replacement for Makdessi, looking to pick up where he left off against Al Iaquinta on the UFC 268 card when he earned a first-round TKO (punches). Haqparast enters the bout looking to bounce back from a defeat at the hands of Dan Hooker via unanimous decision last time out.
Quickly dismantles Al Iaquinta
LightweightUFC
November 6, 2021
Green defeated Al Iaquinta via TKO (punches) at 2:25 of Round 1 at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
ANALYSIS
Green made this look way, way too easy. Facing an opponent who had never been knocked out prior to Saturday, Green picked Iaquinta apart on the feet before connecting with a jab which started the sequence that ended the fight. Green entered this fight having lost two straight, although he fought well in his most recent bout, a unanimous decision defeat at the hands of the talented Rafael Fiziev at UFC 265 in Houston this past August. Green still has extremely fast hands and remains a clear threat inside the Octagon despite being 35 years old and having more than 40 professional fights under his belt. On top of the victory, he'll also take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.
