UFC Fight Night — Catch Weight Bout | Main Event
Islam Makhachev (21-1-0, 3 KO, 10 Sub) vs. Bobby “King” Green (29-12-1, 9 KO, 9 Sub)
Date: Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022
Fight Time: This will be the final fight on the main card, which begins at 7 p.m. EST.
Venue: UFC APEX — Las Vegas, NV
If it feels like Bobby Green just fought, it’s because he did. Two weeks ago, actually. This main event was supposed to be a battle between two top lightweight contenders. However, Beneil Dariush hurt his ankle and is unable to fight. Green will be at a disadvantage in the weight department. He is also a massive underdog against Islam Makhachev.
While fighting only two weeks ago does put Green at a disadvantage, this UFC odds are lopsided for more reasons than that. Islam is an incredibly powerful grappler who will be looking to get the fight to the mat quickly. He has won three straight fights by submission.
With Islam’s only UFC loss coming back in 2015, the 30-year-old has been running through the division. While we all want to see the fight between him and Dariush, if Islam impresses enough, there is a chance his next fight will be for the Lightweight Title against the winner of Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje.
