Bobby Green Officially Changes Name to King

Veteran UFC lightweight Bobby Green has legally changed his name to King Green and will use this new moniker as he prepares to fight Paddy Pimblett at UFC 304, where he aims to silence Pimblett’s trash talk.

The ‘King’ is dead, long live the King.

Veteran UFC lightweight Bobby Green no longer needs that nickname. He revealed he actually went through with a name change to become King Green.

He posted a video on Instagram along with his birth certificate. It showed that he legally changed his name.

“My name is King now,” Green announced. “Just to let people know, I wasn’t playing. I really changed my name.”

Green has teased this for a while. Now, he’ll go by King as he prepares for one of the highest-profile fights of his career.

At UFC 304, Green clashes with Paddy Pimblett on the main card of the pay-per-view. He previously called for the fight against the always outspoken Brit.

Green complimented Pimblett for his skills inside the cage but admonished him for his constant trash talk since arriving in the UFC.

“This is my next lesson for him: He’s solid, he’s not bad,” Green said back in May. “He’s not a bad fighter at all. The problem is, he won’t shut the f*ck up. Shut the f*ck up, smile, be that stupid kid with that stupid haircut, being happy and dancing, whatever he does. He does that little stupid dance, you know? Let him do his dance and be happy.”

Green enters the fight with a 3-1 record in his past four fights including a lopsided win over Jim Miller at UFC 300 back in April. He also scored an impressive submission win over Tony Ferguson—who is a common opponent with Pimblett after he beat Ferguson by decision six months later.

Green vs. Pimblett is a featured bout on the pay-per-view. Welterweight champion Leon Edwards defends his belt against Belal Muhammad in the main event.
