The fight between Green (24-8-1 MMA, 5-3-1 UFC) and Guida (34-18 MMA, 14-12 UFC) fell apart less than two weeks prior to UFC 225. Charles Oliveira (23-8 MMA, 11-8 UFC) stepped in as a late replacement, and managed to submit “The Carpenter” in the first round at United Center in Chicago.
Guida was asked about Green’s withdrawal during the pre-fight media day, and his response was far from kind.
“Bobby, ‘Bobby Yellow’ I call him, because he’s a coward,” Guida told MMAjunkie. “He ducked out three times against my coach Danny Castillo, so we weren’t the least bit surprised (he withdrew). He’s a taunter, he’s a talker. Very sloppy fighter.”
Green said he caught wind of Guida’s comments, and during an Instagram Live session with his followers earlier today, “King” clapped back hard.
“He’s probably sitting somewhere on a loser’s couch icing his (expletive) coochy, icing his (expletive) vagina,” Green said. “My thing is like, he wants to talk all this super-(expletive) about me, about pulling out and ‘Bobby Yellow’ and ‘Bobby Brown’ and all this super talking (expletive). But you let a mother(expletive) come in here and beat your ass on two weeks’ notice, a 145er? And finished you? You didn’t even last two minutes.
“You were training on a full camp. You did worse than CM Punk. Are you serious? Are you serious? You did worse than CM Punk. You got Punk’d worse than CM Punk. Are you (expletive) serious? Get the (expletive) out of here. This mother(expletive). I don’t get that (expletive).”
The knee injury that forced Green out of UFC 225 required surgery. That procedure took place this past week, and he said he’s already on the comeback trail. He said he’ll be ready to fight again in the coming months, and it’s clear he wants a piece of Guida.
Although canceled fights have unfortunately been commonplace in Green’s career in recent years, he said he thinks he handled his withdrawal from UFC 225 with class. There was no personal issue with Guida, he said, but that all changed significantly when his fellow fighter put him on blast in the media.
“I apologized, I said to him and (UFC matchmaker) Sean (Shelby) for my shortcomings,” Green said. “Then I see this mother(expletive) article about him talking (expletive). I told him I’m sorry and I apologized for what happened, but I promise I will make it up to you. Then somewhere in there this (expletive) think he can come and overstep the boundaries. Now we going to really expose you. You got whooped up on in two minutes by a guy who jumped off the couch, and a 145er at that.”
Green, 31, did not provide an exact timeline for when he could return to the octagon, but he indicated it won’t be long. He told Guida to wait for him so they can settle their differences inside the octagon.
“Tell him don’t move,” Green said. “I ain’t going nowhere, he ain’t going nowhere. Tell him don’t move. I’ll be his next fight.”
