Bobby Green is eyeing a quick turnaround going into his upcoming UFC 304 fight.

Green faces Liverpudlian prospect Paddy Pimblett at UFC 304 on July 27 at the Co-op Live Arena in Manchester, England. Green then wants to fly across the globe for UFC 305 on Aug. 17 at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia.

Green will already be at UFC 305 to corner teammate Alex Reyes, who will seek his first UFC win against Tom Nolan after back-to-back first-round stoppage losses. Looking to make the best of his visit, Green expressed interest in a clash against Dan Hooker, who is also seemingly eager to be on the card.

“My plans is to fight Paddy, and if I can, if the UFC let me, I want to fight in Perth too,” said Green on his Instagram Stories. “You can pick that person. I heard Dan Hooker is looking for a fight. I’ll fight Dan, I don’t care. But all I need is for you to do me this favor, work out them taxes. Because I’m not trying to give up $90,000 in f—-ing taxes to Australia. But if my plans go right, fight Paddy in London and already I gotta go [to Australia] for my boy Alex Reyes’ fight. I’m already gonna be out there, I might as well fight too. So, if you all can make than happen UFC, let’s make it happen.’”

Representing the City Kickboxing gym in Auckland, New Zealand, Hooker is one of the biggest fan favorite fighters from the region. Hooker’s teammate, Israel Adesanya, who challenges Dricus Du Plessis for the middleweight title in the main event at UFC 305, has strongly implored the UFC to include “The Hangman” on the card.

Meanwhile, Hooker recently stirred up rumors of a potential UFC 305 clash against former lightweight champ Charles Oliveira. However, “The Hangman” admitted to having fabricated that bout once Oliveira shut down the rumors.

Green is 1-3 in his last four and coming off a unanimous decision win over Jim Miller at UFC 300. He will first have to get past Pimblett, who is unbeaten in five UFC outings and coming off a unanimous decision win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 296.

Meanwhile, Hooker hasn’t fought since a violent split-decision win over Jalin Turner at UFC 290 in July 2023 that left him with a lingering hand injury.
