LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — “King” wants his money.

It was an unfortunate turn of events for Bobby Green and Jared Gordon at UFC Vegas 71 last night (Sat., April 22, 2023) inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when a clash of heads led to a dreaded “No Contest.” During an exchange, Green dropped Gordon with what he thought was an elbow (it wasn’t) and then jumped on “Flash” and finished him with punches (watch highlights).

However, the fight was reviewed by cageside officials before the results was read and ruled the 155-pound clash a “No Contest” much to the chagrin of Green. Indeed, after the fight Green stopped by the media room to answer a question ... and exploded.

“We’re going to let some feelings out today,” Green told the media. “F—k this, f—k this, and f—k this. Like, I get it, we f—king clashed heads. I was trying to go for an elbow, and he kind of dipped his head and we kind of clashed, but he was still f—king moving.

“He was trying to put me into a f—king triangle,” Green continued. “I fought the triangle sh-t off, and he was still moving fine, and then after when I busted his ass- he was fu—ked up. They want to try to slide me on my money, that’s what I’m mad about. I need my money, bro. I need my money.”

It is unknown at this time if Green or Gordon will receive their win money, but going off of Green’s response, it seems unlikely.
