Recently suspended UFC fighter Bobby Green is taking aim at Islam Makhachev and Russian athletes in general.

Green will return to action for the first time since a February 2022 short-notice loss to current lightweight champion Islam Makhachev. Ahead of his Saturday night scrap with Drew Dober, ‘King’ spoke about the Dagestani invasion of mixed martial arts in recent years, suggesting that Russian athletes are encouraged to take performance-enhancing drugs starting at a very early age as a way to explain their dominance in the sport. 

“I was f*cking around on my YouTube right and I found this little video and it said Islam (Makhachev) had a little trouble with drugs, but I don’t see people talking about him,” Green said at the UFC media day on Wednesday. “He was saying when he first came over that his school that he trained at in Russia, they just gave him vitamins. They’ve been doing this since who knows when. When you start training. Imagine if you gave someone steroids from the age of 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, how strong you would be. People like, ‘he was really strong.’ It makes sense now. 

“There’s two people that I moved around with. I’m not gonna say their names, but I was like, ‘that was interesting.’ I told my coach, ‘there was something interesting about Islam’ and I felt it. It’s just not human. It makes sense. If I could do drugs like… Because our countries are different. Russia’s been banned for the Olympics. Their country’s a little bit more okay with the drug use. We’re under strenuous drug stuff over here. There it’s a little bit different.” 

Bobby Green Suggests Lack of Allowed PED Usage in U.S. Sports Has ‘P*ssified’ American Athletes

Suggesting that American athletes are ‘p*ssified’ for not being allowed to take performance-enhancing drugs in competition is an odd flex, but it’s the hill Bobby Green has chosen to die on during his comments at Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night Media Day.  

“There they’re behind the fighter their fighters. They want them to be stronger. They want them to be more manly. Over here, we don’t. It’s just what it is, but imagine if I could do that. I would kill everybody and so it makes sense to me and I wonder why those Dagestanians were winning so much. They’ve been bred to do this. I could train a nine-year-old against a bear. We’ve been doing this stuff since kids. They’ve been bred to be better than us. I’m sorry. They’re gonna win. It’s just what it is. We’re a little too p*ssified over here. We can’t do that. You can’t do that. Those other countries are trying to do it and that’s why they’re having so much more success.”

The lightweight standout was recently handed a six months suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency, or USADA, after he had tested positive for the anabolic androgenic steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). The test was administered on May 16th and generated a positive result for a banned substance. 

As DHEA is a legally sold over-the-counter dietary supplement in the United States, Green’s suspension was reduced from two years to six months, retroactive to the date of the test meaning Green was eligible to return as of November 16th. Green took full responsibility, saying he received the advice to take the supplement from a YouTube video and believed it to be fair game considering it was easily accessible at a local Walmart.
