Get on his level.
In fact, the former Strikeforce star has even been compared to "Rampage" over the years, both in his physical appearance, as well as by his performances. So what happened when the "King" finally got to meet the man behind the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter?
Green takes to his Twitter account to share the experience:
So all my career I've been compared to Rampage, people tell me how I look like him fight like him etc, well after five years I finally met him and wow it was not worth it so check this out: I tell him how I'm a big fan how I'm compared to him and that I feel I could never fill his shoes etc all good shit gave him the highest respect as soon as I leave he started talking shit behind my back. He didn't know my bro was in the room so he was basically saying who is this little mofo and who does he think he is or something like that and it's sad cuz a dude like that going to crush the chances for the next little dudes that come down the line. I'm not really tripping about the situation just more so thrown off by it cuz when u see theses dudes on TV they look one way but there totally another #Exposed. To think I waited five years for that. It's funny how I never imagined to be in a room with these legends but what would transpire #blownaway.
As always, there are two sides to every story, but Green's side paints an unflattering portrait of the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, who earlier this year joined forces with Bellator and Viacom for a variety of MMA and pro wrestling-related endeavors.
Green was recently pulled from his UFC on FOX 8 fight against Danny Castillo due to injury and has promised to share more "behind-the-scenes" stories in the future. In the meantime, what do you think of his Rampage run-in? Anyone have a similar experience with a fighter?
Sharing is caring.
