With three straight wins, Bobby Green angling for Al Iaquinta rebooking

LAS VEGAS – Bobby Green beat Alan Patrick with a unanimous decision Saturday on the main card at UFC on ESPN+ 35 in Las Vegas.

Take a look inside the fight with Green, who won for the third straight time.

Green on the fight’s key moment

“I didn’t pull the trigger enough. Good things happen when you pull the trigger, and I didn’t pull the trigger. I should’ve pulled it more. But just his style, it was so weird and awkward. The guy kept getting on the shots and stuff. So I’m making sure I’m not overthrowing it and getting under me. He just plays a different game than most fighters. He’s totally different. He’s a black belt, so you have to respect him, and I wanted to make sure we could show him there were no advantages in this fight. Wherever it goes, we are prepared.”

“Nothing changed but the day. I still have the same coaches, it’s the same gyms. I didn’t change anything. You guys are just watching it. I’ve had some bad decisions. Everything is just coming together now for me and my camp. Shout-out to all my guys in my camp. Thank you everybody who helped me get ready. I really appreciate everybody back at home.”

“I’d like to fight Al Iaquinta. I talked to him when he was fighting Kevin Lee and I was like, ‘I blew my knee out the day I was supposed to fight you (in 2015). If you’d like to run it back, we can run it back.’ He was like, ‘Yes, sure.’ Let’s see if he wants to run it back.”
