Bobby Green Accuses Donald Cerrone Of Racist Comments And Groping Fans

UFC lightweight Bobby Green has put together a very impressive three-year unbeaten streak, most recently defeating Josh Thomson by split decision at UFC on FOX 12. Soon after the win over “The Punk”, Green was booked in to face fellow surging 155er Donald Cerrone at UFC 178. Unfortunately for “King”, he was soon bumped from the card. Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez forced Green from his booking against “Cowboy”, after originally being slated to face Jorge Masvidal, and he now awaits a new opponent. Talking with MMAFighting.com, Green discussed being removed from the September card:

“Obviously I had some bad blood with Cerrone, but I’m a company dude you know. At the end of the day, I can’t be stopped. It’s just a food chain, I understand that those dudes are bigger names. Whoever comes on my block is getting it, that’s just the way it is. All I care about is doing me to the max.”

Green’s win over Josh Thomson was somewhat a milestone in his career, as was apparent when got was booked against Cerrone. It doesn’t seem to have annoyed “King” that he was bumped from the UFC 178 card, and the chances are he will still get a big fight next anyway. He continued:

“I was originally meant to face Abel Trujillo, then I get a fight with Masvidal and then Cerrone. It felt like I was getting rag dolled. I’m the little guy, this doesn’t happen to Jones or Cerrone. I’m just leaning over here, trying to get money, I’m good. Cerrone feels like he is untouchable, he is just the most obnoxious asshole I ever met. He was so rude and all that, saying ‘you don’t want to strike with me’ and all that.”

Green the started to describe the time that he and Cerrone were signing autographs for fans at a UFC expo; not only does he accuse “Cowboy” of being rude, but also of racist comments and lewd behaviour! This just got juicy:

“He said some racist stuff, like ‘you know how black people like to steal’, and this was in front of like loads of people. I was laughing it off, but the real dude inside of me was like ‘I don’t let that shit slide’. He was being obnoxious, he was groping every woman in this place. They got husbands and boyfriends and he was just groping these girls in front of them. He was grabbing these girls asses like ‘what are they gonna do to me’. He disrespected me and I really don’t like him now. It’s my time to get even with him.”

Wow. Obviously there is no hard evidence on these accusations, but they are very controversial. Although the fight with Cerrone at UFC 178 fell apart, it looks like Green is dead set on fighting the Jackson’s MMA product. With these new details of their run-in being uncovered, the background story has some substance too.

Do you see any truth in Green’s accusations of racism from Cerrone, or is he trying to feed the fire of their beef? Either way, I think that would be a great fight anyway.

    So it was racist (what was said), yet you laughed it off?

    Sounds like an opportunist to me.

      You seem to assume that every black person will react violently to racist remarks but you shouldn't be. That being said there is a HUGE difference between a racist comment/remark and being a racist. I honestly believe that most people stereotype and generalise when it comes to race and culture. The intent is the most important thing in the end and he clearly thinks Cerrone is a racist. Only Cerrone can reply to his accusations, we weren't there.

      Opportunist? The guy didn't want to make an uncomfortable situation worse in front of the fans, big deal. Yeah he could have said something, but he probably thought "just let it go" and then it later festered in him. Anyhow the guy likes to do his talking in the cage, I think we can all respect that.

        If Green is a closet racist against Whites like Al Sharpton than this is an opportunity for Green to play the race card to villafy Cerrone and make himself look like a victim. Yea, opportunist indeed.

        I'm a cop – 11 years now – I see and hear this kind of shit all the time from black people. Their "leaders" are dog shit – they could do better.

        If the "real dude inside" said "I don't let that shit slide" why didn't he say something to Cerrone? He could have easily pulled him to the side and said, "Yo Donald, did you mean that in a racist sense? I didn't like that comment you made," or something along those lines. This, bringing it to the media is being an opportunist.

    I heard a joke once that the word "racist" is to White people the way the N-word is to Black people. If a Black person calls a White person a racists it for some weird reason makes the Black person racist or a race bater or some other non-sense.

    Green's story is pretty straight forward. If its true it sounds like Cerrone is a racist. Saying Black people steal is offensive and certainly not a joke you say in public about a guy you don't know.

    Is anyone really surprised that a "cowboy" might be racist.

    Having watched the London riots in my home country and the Missouri riots in America it is not racist to say black people like to steal stuff. It is factually accurate. White people like to steal stuff too.

    now weak away bitches.

    I believe Bobby, Cerrone is exactly the type of douche-bag asshole that would do and say those kinds of things. He'll get his. Green was playing around with Thompson the whole fight, they kept it relatively playful and that's cool but this fight is gonna be very different.
