Bobby Green Announces Retirement Following Contentious Decision Loss at UFC on Fox 31



It looks like Bobby Green is calling it a career after 34 professional mixed martial arts fights.

Green announced his retirement following a contentious decision loss to Drakkar Klose at UFC on Fox 31 in Milwaukee on Saturday night. Green was clearly frustrated by the scoring of a fight in which he outlanded his opponent by a 92-to-58 count in significant strikes.

“I thought I won, but we’ve got these judges, you know. I think I’m done. I’m gonna retire,” Green said in a video posted to his Instagram account (The account has since been deleted as promised). “I’m gonna focus on my kids, focus on their upbringing. I gave a lot of time away for this sport from my family. I retire. I don’t want to f—-ing deal with the judges or some of the lifestyle that comes with it.

“I want to thank you all for your support. I will be deleting all my social media, and I’m done. But thank you so much; I hope I inspired someone to do something. It’s an honor and a blessing to have done this.”

Green won just once in his last six Octagon appearances after beginning his UFC tenure with four consecutive triumphs. King went 24-9-1 over the course of a career that included stints with Strikeforce, King of the Cage and Affliction. He earned notable wins over the likes of Josh Thomson, Erik Koch, James Krause and Daron Cruickshank, to name a few.
