Bobby Green is hoping to fight Paddy Pimblett his next time out.
Green and Pimblett were both in attendance at UFC San Diego with Green being just a few rows behind ‘The Baddy’ when he began videotaping him and calling him out. Green was vocal about thinking Pimblett was taking easy fights and hopes he steps up to the plate and faces him.

“Who is this fathead guy? Can somebody tell me who this fathead guy is? They said he’s ‘The Baddy’ I don’t know about ‘The Baddy’ if he was bad he would fight me if he was bad. If you really want to fight someone real, somebody with some real credibility, not this ‘Money King’ bullshit, weird shit, fight a n*****, bro,” Green said in the video. “I’m with my girl, too, but I don’t give a f**k it goes down when it goes down. Man, this guy is fat, look at this guy, sheesh.”
On paper, a fight between Green and Pimblett does make sense as it would be a step-up in competition while also still being an unranked opponent for Pimblett. Whether or not the UFC or Pimblett has an interest in the fight is uncertain, but Green has made it known he wants the scrap.
Bobby Green (29-13-1) suffered a TKO loss to Islam Makhachev in a short-notice main event after beating Nasrat Haqparast by decision and scoring a TKO win over Al Iaquinta. Green has been in the UFC since 2013 and holds notable wins over James Krause, Clay Guida, and Josh Thomson among others.
