It was another great night of fights last night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC Fight Night. UFC lightweight contender, Bobby ‘King’ Green, 26W 10L 1DR, scores a unanimous decision victory in his rematch with fellow UFC veteran, ‘Groovy’ Lando Vannata, 11W 5L 2DR. Their first match-up was a barn burner, a back and forth war in which both displayed hearts of lions, ending in a draw, awarding both men Fight of the Night bonuses.
Green made a quick turnaround for this fight, after a unanimous decision victory less than two months ago in June, over Clay ‘The Carpenter’ Guida, 35W 20L. Green always shows up to fight, built for war, packing an extra gas tank of fuel in his arsenal. Just like with Guida, against Vannata he never slowed down or eased up the pace. Green is known for keeping a methodical, relentless assault on his opponent for every round, and he did just that against Vannata. Groovy was in the fight the entire duration of each round, however Green was landing more shots, doing more damage, as well as avoiding more shots. Green had this confidence going in, knowing this was going to be the outcome, like if he was Neo from the movie ‘The Matrix’. Green’s fight style, along with the techniques delivered, were carried out with such brutal elegance and expertise, as if he unplugged from reality gaining a different kind of control over his opponent. While Green was keeping his hands low, attacking like a sniper, Vannata was unable to see when the shots were coming, and where they were going. Green appeared to have no marks or bruises on his face as Vannata was wearing all the damages done by Green.
Nevertheless, both men showed up to fight, creating a great recipe of violence and chaotic disaster inside the UFC Apex Octagon. Without a doubt, one of the best martial arts showdowns this year, from two high level gangster warriors. I can only imagine whats next for Green, has he appears to be peaking in his fight skills, maturing into a better fighter after each match-up. Although he’s only on a 2-fight win streak, many of his prior losses were left at the hands of questionable judging. Time will tell, and it will only be a matter of time, before we see Bobby ‘King’ Green get back inside the UFC octagon against a ranked opponent.
