Bobby Green is once again building momentum.
The UFC veteran picked up a dominant win over Nasrat Haqparast at Saturday’s UFC 271. Green won without controversy, scoring 30-27 across all three judges’ scorecards.
The lightweight bout opened up the main card at Toyota Center, and it was a vintage “King” Green fight.
With his hands down and head forward, Green (29-12-1 MMA, 10-7-1 UFC) baited and countered Haqparast (13-5 MMA, 5-4 UFC) for the majority of the first round. Haqparast did have some moments and bloodied Green from the top of the nose. However, Green was able to stay a step ahead and land the better and more precise shots.
The second and third rounds were a very similar story. Haqparast marched forward, looking to land on Green, but the crafty veteran managed to move out the way of most strikes and pick apart Haqparast from the outside. His volume and accuracy grew as the fight went on.
It was a clean and dominant showing by Green. He landed 163 significant strikes according to the UFC’s metrics.
Green now finds himself two wins removed from his most recent defeat, where he lost a decision to Rafael Fiziev at UFC 265 in August. The bout won the card’s Fight of the Night award. Green is now 6-2 in his past eight bouts. His recent win includes notable wins over Clay Guida, Lando Vannata and Al Iaquinta.
Meanwhile, Haqparast was unable to return to the win column. The 26-year-old was coming off a decision loss to Dan Hooker back in September at UFC 266. Prior to this two-fight losing streak, Haqparast was 5-1 on his previous 6 trips to the octagon.
