“I ended up going down the weight cut. Do my thing. Weigh-in and then go see the doctors. I’m not gonna lie, I normally pull that s**t together, but this time I couldn’t pull it together. I was trying to just get to the stage with Jim and get past that. Then maybe I can go home, get in bed, and things will change out or I’ll feel better. But I just couldn’t get off the goddamn chair,” Green said (video via @AquaMMA_ on Twitter).

Bobby Green competed four times in the UFC in 2020

Green is a UFC veteran who was on cue to make his 16th walk to the UFC Octagon. In his last fight, the 34-year-old suffered a unanimous decision loss at the hands of Thiago Mosses. Prior to that, Green had won three straight, all of which came via unanimous decision.

A UFC veteran, Green has been around the fight game for over 13 years. For someone of his experience, Green knew that something wasn’t right after his backstage collapse.

” I just fell down to the ground and was sitting there and everybody was like call somebody, call somebody. Blah blah blah whatever happens, so I think I just fucked up the water loading thing. They say my kidneys are f**ked up right now. I guess the average fighter’s kidneys go… something, some sh*t they were saying like 1.7. I’m at 3.5,” Green added.

As of now, there have been no further updates regarding Green’s health status. However, the fans and people in his camp would wish for a speedy recovery for the lightweight.
