Green had a tremendously successful 2020 where he managed to go 3-1 and unfortunately broke his streak in October. Prior to the loss to Thiago Moises, ‘King’ had scalped three unanimous decision victories that were exceedingly exciting. His chaotic style that relies on blitzing his opponent rarely fails him, and he’s looking to carry the same momentum into the new year.
