Bobby Green was originally booked to fight Jorge Masvidal at UFC 178 and things have been a roller coaster ever since.
When Jon Jones had to pull himself from the card, Green was booked in a more high-profile match-up against Cerrone to potentially serve as the co-main event. After UFC poached Eddie Alvarez from Bellator to fight Cerrone, Green was left off the card entirely. While many expected Green to be angry at the time, he kept his cool… until now.
On today’s episode of The MMA Hour, Green accused his former opponent of being obnoxious, sexually harassing women and even making racist remarks at the recent Fan Expo in Las Vegas.
On racist remarks..
“He just said some racist stuff. He said stuff like, random racist stuff like ‘we gotta check him, we gotta check him, you know how black people like to steal.’ I’m like ‘what the,’ and I’m getting hot in front of thousands of people, all these people are here for the signing and they’re going ‘ohhhh’ and ‘ooooh’ and ‘ahhh.'”
On his obnoxious behavior…
“We’re at the Expo signing, and Cerrone is going out, he is just the most obnoxious a-hole I’ve ever met. And I liked the guy, I was a fan of him at the time. So I’m actually excited to meet the guy. I’m cool with him, I shake his hand, you know, and he’s just been rude as hell. ‘Oh, no you don’t want to strike with me. You want to be a wrestler, I’ll make you a wrestler’. I’m like man, I’m cool with your boy, your boys are my boys, and me Vallie-Flagg are cool, and me and Derek Brunson is cool, and they’re both from his camp so I’m like, its cool, it’s all good bro, because I’m the new guy, I’m the new guy on the show. I don’t want to make waves, it’s not good for business to make all these waves and you’re just coming in, you’re just a little fish. You can’t come in and be fighting these guys and making a bunch of noise when you’re a nobody. They’ll kick you right out of this really quick, you know? That Jon Jones-Cormier stuff happens? You’re outta here real quick if you’re not a Jon Jones or a Cormier.”
On harassing female fans…
“He was groping every woman in his line to do his signing,” Cerrone said. “He’s groping these women. They’ve got husbands, they’ve got fiancees, they’ve got boyfriends, I’m like, that’s messed up man, just because this guy’s a nerd and he can’t do anything to you, you’re going to do this to him. Girlfriend’s cute, Donald Cerrone, picks her up, grabs her ass, starts grabbing on there and stuff and he’s like “I’m Donald Cerrone.” I’m like, you’re going to piss somebody off, you get the wrong person they’re going to get pissed. He’s like, “what are they going to do to me, I’ll knock them out.” I’m like what the? This guy’s full of himself.”
