Bobby Green vs. Jorge Masvidal Added To UFC 178

UFC has announced a new bout for UFC 178, as Bobby Green and Jorge Masvidal, both fresh off of wins at UFC On FOX 12, will square off in an exciting Lightweight battle.

Masvidal (27-8) is coming off of an impressive outing against Daron Cruickshank this past Saturday night, a fight he won via unanimous decision after three rounds.

Green (23-5) is currently riding an eight-fight winning streak, a streak that stayed in tact after a win over top-ranked Josh Thomson this past Saturday night in San Jose, California.

UFC 178: “Jones vs. Cormier” takes place on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Thought the Masvidal vs Cruickshank match showed Daron lacked experience, he needed it to stand with Jorge. Thought 29-28 should have been the proper score: not sure how Daron lost the first round on one judge’s card after dropping Jorge with one punch.

    Green vs Thompson: Green threw nothing the first round. Advanced, yapped and posed. Josh was schooling him. Even Rogan and Greenberg mentioned Green was not throwing anything…then one second later? He is “winning the round”….geez guys, get your narrative straight, willya?

    Second round, Green landed some kicks, a few punches: the punch counter showed him landing a ton more “significant strikes”: they were so fast, no one could see them…because they didn’t happen, they were missing Josh. But Josh landed nothing in the 2nd rnd either. The third round, Thompson took Green down twice, once a body slam from behind. The blows exchanged seemed even: Thomson round.

    As with the Henderson fight, I had Josh winning. So of course, Green got the nod.

    If Green walks straight at Jorge like he did Josh? Masvidal stuns Green late in first round, submits him at 4:20 of the 1st round. A stunned Green may try in desperation to take Jorge down to mat, which is where he gets sumbitted. Jorge is top five. Green lost to Josh.
