Bobby Green suggests ‘part two’ with Lando Vannata after UFC 234

Bobby Green wants to run it back with Lando Vannata after the first fight between UFC lightweights ended with no winner.

Green (24-9-1 MMA, 5-4-1 UFC) and Vannata (10-3-2 MMA, 2-3-2 UFC) fought to a thrilling split draw at UFC 216 in October 2017, and now “King” wants the chance to have a potential fourth, fifth and sixth round to determine the superior fighter once and for all.

After Vannata earned a first-round submission of Marcos Mariano at UFC 234 on Saturday, he respectfully called out 155-pound veteran Jim Miller. Green claims Miller is booked against one of his teammates, though, and suggest Vannata turn his attention elsewhere (via Instagram):

“‘Groovy,’ you did your thing, bro. You was real good in your last fight. I heard you called out Jim Miller, but Jim Miller happens to be fighting one of my boys. SO how bout we take the same card and me and you hope in there and do part two. Me and you.”

The initial meeting between Green and Vannata ended with “Fight of the Night” honors at UFC 216. Green would have won, as well, if not for a point deduction caused by an illegal strike.

Green has gone 1-1 since and is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Drakkar Klose at UFC on FOX 31 in December. Vannata, meanwhile, just snapped a four-fight winless skid with his submission of Mariano at UFC 234.
