Bobby Green and Arman Tsarukyan will step inside the Octagon on Saturday night with different opponents, but that didn’t stop them from attempting to tussle in the hotel lobby hours before fight night. 

According to Green, he was in the lobby by himself to take care of some media obligations when the lightweight standout found himself in a heated exchange with one-half of the UFC Austin headliner. 

“Sh*t just getting started,” Green said via an Instagram story. “Sh*t’s just getting started, n*gga. Little b*tchc ass n*gga right there. I’mma get you right there. Y’all ran up on me, n*gga. Y’all ran up on me, what’s up?!

“I ain’t be starting nothing with nobody, but if you start that sh*t with me, I’m definitely gonna finish it,” he continued. “This sh*t just starting. It’s just starting. N*gga might go to jail tonight. F*ck around playing with me.”

The tension between Green and Tsarukyan likely started when ‘King’ made some disparaging remarks about Tsarukyan’s fighting style during an interview with The Schmo earlier this month. 

“That Arman guy is f*cking boring,” Green said. “I can’t stand watching him fight. Every time I’ve watched him fight, I go to sleep.”

Per SoCal News Group’s Brian Martin, he was conducting a phone interview with Green when the altercation occurred. Security intervened, putting an end to Green’s interview and eventually the incident itself. 

“This b*tch ass n*gga ran up on me trying to start that sh*t,” Green said. “He didn’t know I was gonna finish it. I socked one of his homies. Bop (laughs). Stop playing with me, bro. N*gga, we from ‘Dino. We from the ‘Dino where that sh*t really goes down. You n*ggas trying to do all that talking.

“Hey, I need somebody else to tell me who that is in that video. I don’t know who the f*ck he is, but he was acting super tough when the n*ggas ran up on me by myself. They all ran up on me by myself and they was acting all that tough. As soon as I ran into the n*ggas again with my n*ggas then he was, ‘Oh, no, no.’

“Nah, nah, nah. You started this sh*t,” he concluded. “Then soon as security come and all that sh*t, now you want to act tough again.”

Bobby Green was originally scheduled to square off with Dan Hooker in a five-round co-main event, but after Hooker broke his arm whilst training, Jalin Turner agreed to step in on short notice. 

In the evening’s main event, Arman Tsarukyan will look to take a giant leap up the contender’s ladder as he meets perennial contender Beneil Dariush.
