  • Bobby Green suffered a KO loss to Drew Dober despite starting out strong
  • “King” expressed his disappointment on social media and blamed himself

What could’ve been a good way to bounce back ended up in a nasty KO loss. That’s what happened to UFC stalwart Bobby Green when he faced Drew Dober in a lightweight bout at UFC Vegas 66. After the fight, Green reflected on his defeat and blamed nobody but himself.

Close but not quite

Green started out strong and evidently dominated Dober in the opening round. However, things took a huge turnaround when “King” began to feel a bit too confident and loosen up his guard in the second.

On the other hand, Dober capitalized and finished Green with a flurry of punches, capped off by a vicious left hook that floored the 15-year UFC veteran. Dober was then declared winner via knockout.

Taking his thoughts on social media, Green, despite being disappointed, did not point fingers and admitted that it was all his fault that his victory slipped away.

“It f*cking sucks,” Green said on his Instagram Stories. “Sometimes sh*t f*cking happens. I went out there and done my thing. I thought I was f*cking dominating, I thought everything was going smooth, and sh*t f*cking happens. I can’t be mad at anybody but myself. Drew Dober, you’re an awesome f*cking guy. Sorry if I let you guys down. This is my art. Hopefully you liked it, and I didn’t let you down.” h/t MMAJunkie

Not done yet

Green rose to prominence when he agreed to the short-notice replacement for Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 202 to take on Islam Makhachev. Despite losing to the now lightweight champion via first-round TKO, “King” was still commended by UFC fans for stepping up.

Now off back-to-back losses, Green insisted that he’s not done yet and will be back stronger once again.

“I will be back soon,” he added. “Probably sooner than you think.”

The fight against Dober was Green’s first after being slapped with a six-month suspension due to intake of banned substance, which he later revealed was a result of taking advice from a “stupid YouTube doctor.”

Meanwhile, Dober has now won his last three consecutive trips to the Octagon. All of which were impressive KO/TKO finishes.
