Bobby Green to Floyd Mayweather: “I’ll kill you. I’ll strangle you out in the back of a parking lot.”
UFC lightweight fighter Bobby Green will return to the octagon at June’s UFC 225 pay-per-view event in Chicago against fellow veteran Clay Guida.
Bobby Green (24-8-1 MMA) recently picked up his first win since 2014 at January’s UFC on FOX event in Charlotte where he defeated Erik Koch via unanimous decision.
“King” now meets “The Carpenter” Clay Guida who is currently riding a two-fight win streak his latest being a first-round TKO victory over Joe Lauzon at UFC Norfolk.
Prior to his pivotal bout with Guida at UFC 225, Bobby Green sat down with MMAJunkieRadio where he discussed a number of topics including his beef with legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather.
Earlier this year, Green had posted a profanity-laced video on Instagram where he attacked the recently retired undefeated boxer “Money Mayweather”.
“I feel like Mayweather is playing with us, like trolling,” Green told MMAjunkie Radio. “Don’t troll my sport. Don’t play. This is not a game over here. We will kill you. You think this is a cakewalk? I will kill you if you step in the ring with me.”
“I don’t feel like boxers respect us, but if you put us in the streets, you’re not going to hit me with one shot and think you’re going to knock me out,” said Green. “I’ll kill you. I’ll strangle you out in the back of a parking lot, and you’ll be dead.”
Bobby Green went on to explain that his beef with Mayweather stems from a negative experience he had at “Money’s” boxing gym in Las Vegas.
“(I told Mayweather), ‘Listen, sir … thank you what you’ve done for black people,’” Green said. “‘Thank you what you’ve done for me.’ And I bow to him.”
“Mayweather looked at me – he didn’t flinch, he didn’t move, he didn’t blink. He looked straight through me as if I was not even there. What I realized, is you can be a great person, and you can be awesome to people,” Green said. “And you have that one time that you showed your ass to the wrong person, and you don’t know when it’s going to come back and bite you.”
