UFC lightweight number thirteen Bobby Green, who will face Dan Hooker in the tournament’s second main event on Dec. 2 at UFC on ESPN 52 in Austin, isn’t thrilled that the event will be headlined by a fight between Arman Tsarukian and Benil Dariush.
“That Arman is a damn boring fighter,” the American said in an interview with The Schmo. “I can’t watch his fights. When I try to do that, I fall asleep. And he’s also demanding a tournament bonus from Dana White. What kind of bonus do you want? What did you do? That was awful.”
“I don’t like fighting boring guys – they totally suck. I respect Benil and his work, but Arman is just a terrible fighter. My previous opponent, Grant Dawson, was the same, I dealt with him, but I don’t want to fight guys like that anymore. They suck.”
That said, Green himself promises to delight fans with a standout performance.
“I’m expecting a bloody fight. I’m expecting us to go out there, have a fight of the evening, and it’ll be my tenth or eleventh bonus – I’ve already lost count of them, and I’m going to get another one”
Note that earlier Bobby Green repeatedly made provocative statements about Russian fighters, in particular, he claimed that doping in Russia is on the stream, and that the current UFC lightweight champion, Islam Makhachev, has been using steroids since childhood.
