Strong effort in tight defeat

Green lost to Rafael Fiziev via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 265 on Saturday in Houston
ANALYSIS
Moral victories don't do much for Green at this stage of his career, but he fought very well on Saturday despite the setback. Entering as a +240 underdog, Green gave Fiziev everything he could handle and then some. Fiziev landed the harder shots -- particularly in Round 2 -- but Green kept coming. He did a good job of limiting Fiziev's openings for the most part. This was a close fight in which Green appeared to get stronger as it progressed. The 30-27 scorecard in favor of Fiziev is laughable, but Texas has been known for some quirky decisions over the years. It would have been great if this was a five-rounder, but 15 minutes was enough to earn both men $50,000 Fight of the Night bonuses. Green has now lost back-to-back fights on the heels of a three-fight winning streak. His last ten fights dating back to April 2017 have seen the final bell.

Green's scheduled Saturday fight against Jim Miller was called off after he collapsed backstage following Friday's weigh-in, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It's not yet clear whether the collapse was merely due to weight-cut issues or an underlying problem, though the fact that he was the very last fighter to weigh in may hint at the former. Whatever the reason, Green won't be in fighting shape by Saturday, so the pair will have to wait until a later date to square off.
