Bobby Green ultimately got his revenge on Arman Tsarukyan and team at the fighter’s hotel in Austin, Tex., as new footage has emerged showing “King” and a squad of his teammates running up on Tsarukyan’s crew and starting an all-out brawl. Of course, Green’s attack didn’t stem from nothing.

Earlier this week, Tsarukyan and company approached Green at the host hotel for UFC Austin, which goes down tomorrow night (Sat., Dec. 2, 2023) live on ESPN/ESPN+ and features both fighters. The two lightweights exchanged words and Green eventually stood up. That’s when Green told Tsarukyan to do something about the situation, even pushing Tsarukyan back to get him out of his face.

Tsarukyan, who is not known for talking trash or approaching fellow fighters during fight week, put his hand around Green’s neck. Luckily, the two were quickly separated to avoid any escalated behavior. However, Green is not someone to run up on and try to intimidate. There was simply no way that was going to be the last time the two teams would collide.

On Saturday, new footage surfaced showing Team Green walking down Tsarukyan and his teammates to give them a taste of their own medicine. The melee lasted about one minute with both teams getting in some licks, which all started with an attack from Green. It was a wild scene to say the least.

Check it out below:

It’s a shame that Green and Tsarukyan weren’t fighting each other this weekend, as “King” meets Jalin Turner in the co-main event and Tsarukyan headlines the card with a matchup against Beneil Dariush. However, if both fighters come out of UFC Austin victorious it would be shocking to not see them matched up to start the new year.
