Recently I was sitting at my computer trying to beat the world record time for completing Mario Brothers 1 when I got an email from Titan FC asking if I\u2019d be interested in talking with their latest killer, Desmond \u201cThe Predator\u201d Green. I responded \u201cYES\u201d as quick as my arthritic fingers would let me. We traded some emails and settled on a Skype date at a time when Mr. Green had some down time which happened to be 2:30pm. I waited anxiously for the call, and when 2:31 hit I got up like a moron to get a get a glass of water and came back to see 1 missed Skype date on my laptop screen. \u201cI\u2019m such an asshole,\u201d I thought to myself, but called Mr. Green back anyway hoping he\u2019d answer. The video chat was accepted and I was welcomed by a warm smile and a sincere message that my absolute need for a glass of water was excusable. I apologized profusely to the new Tristar Gym athlete who said of his upcoming fight \u201cI\u2019m not stepping out of that cage unless I win.\u201d Congratulations on your most recent win. How does it feel to retire Miguel Torres? Is he really retiring now? It\u2019s kind of bittersweet. I wish I would have been able to fight him a little earlier; that would have been great. That way I could have got a little more respect. But, I think he still had some fight in him. I think it was a good fight. It feels great to knock him out. Tell us about your recent move to Tristar. I moved to Montreal about two months ago; after I got released from Bellator. It was a blessing in disguise. I got hooked up with Titan Fighting Championship, Jeff Aronson reached out to me, he was real genuine. He said he wanted to keep me active, help my career out, which he did. He hooked me up with Alchemist , who got me out here at Tristar. I\u2019ve been training out here since my last fight. It\u2019ll most likely be a permanent move for training. What\u2019s the environment like at Tristar as a new guy? It reminds me a lot of my college wrestling days. I stay in the dorm, they have dorms up here for us fighters. I stay with the fighters. So everybody\u2019s got the same agenda. We all got the same goal. It\u2019s real family-oriented. You\u2019re taking on Steven Siler on December 19th for the Featherweight title. Siler\u2019s on a bit of a losing streak, what sort of training are you doing to make sure that losing streak continues? Honestly, I\u2019m not doing anything different. I\u2019m just doing my regular training schedule\u2014my three workouts, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, two on Tuesday and Thursday, and one on Saturday. I been taking Firas Zahabi\u2019s classes every day, and then just doing my strength and conditioning. I\u2019m going to ensure I get that W by just outworking him . I feel like I could out-beat him in every situation we\u2019re in. What does Desmond Green do to relax? (laughs) I like to watch TV. Who are some of your MMA heroes? My number one hero was always Georges St. Pierre; that\u2019s why it\u2019s such an honor to train here, and with him; it\u2019s surreal. Growing up, since 2006, I\u2019ve been watching Georges St. Pierre. My second, is Anderson Silva. I love the way they fight. But you know who I really love to watch fight, is Jim Miller. He\u2019s a \u2018go-er.\u2019 He\u2019s a hardnosed, tough-ass guy. I love Frankie Edgar, I love watching him; cause he\u2019s a \u2018go-er.\u2019 Even though one day I\u2019m probably going to have to give him a little whoopin\u2019. What\u2019s something about you that will surprise us? Definitely once they start to talk to me; they see how down to earth I am, how genuine and smart I am. I kinda got that \u2018Thuggish-look,\u2019 I got the tattoos on my neck, the dreads and whatnot. But I\u2019m real chill! I like to have fun, make jokes and laugh. Recently Daniel Straus had to cut his dreads to make weight, would you ever do such a thing? No! I run so hard knowing in the back of my head I gotta make weight so I don\u2019t have to cut my hair. I\u2019m stingy. I don\u2019t want to give up my money, either though (laughs). So I\u2019m going to make weight. Before signing with Bellator, you used to part-time at Wal-Mart, do you have any funny stories from that? Uh, naw. It\u2019s just cool being a fighter and working. All of my bosses used to let me roll in like ten minutes late. It\u2019s not that they were scared of me, but, it\u2019s like when everyone knows you\u2019re a fighter, they think you got a short temper; but not me. If they yelled at me for being late, I\u2019d just say \u2018Oh, shit. Sorry, guys,\u2019 and it wasn\u2019t a thing. What\u2019s on your ideal pizza? Aw, man, okay! Number one, bacon. Lots of bacon. Pepperoni. And more bacon. If you could be sponsored by anybody, if for nothing else but the free products, who would it be? Probably, YMCMB. It\u2019s Birdman and Lil\u2019 Wayne\u2019s music crew. They got a nice clothing line, (laughs) I love clothes. If you could start in any comic book movie as the superhero, who would it be? Superman\u2014he\u2019s the best! He\u2019s \u201cSuperman!,\u201d he\u2019s the guy. How close do you feel to your old wrestling roots? Do you feel like your game\u2019s evolving, or is wrestling still your predominate weapon? I\u2019ll always be close to my wrestling roots. That\u2019s my bread and butter. In all of my fights, so far, I haven\u2019t had to utilize my wrestling like that. But I always keep it on the back burner, cause I know once I pull my wrestling out it\u2019s a guaranteed win. I can go out there and wrestle anybody and hold them down. So that\u2019s always going to stay close to my heart. Who or What inspires your fighting style? A little bit of Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva. I like the way Georges is technical, and grinds. He mixes his wrestling with his striking. And then I like the way Silva just flows. Whatever he gets, he\u2019ll take. Who\u2019s your favorite video game character of all-time? I would have to go with Sonic! Sonic the Hedgehog!
