The Joe Rogan Experience – MMA Show 121
Bobby Green is a mixed martial artist currently competing in the Lightweight division for the UFC.
A pretty humble intro blurb for Bobby on the official podcast description. Make no mistake, this guy is a real one with 45 professional fights under his belt since 2008. He’s already at two fights this year. He won a fight on February 12 and then turned around and headlined a UFC Fight Night just two weeks later. Crazy!
Bobby’s dad joins the show after the first hour and tells a crazy story about going to prison. They need to sell this script to Netflix or something – it’s completely wild!
