Bobby Green injured, out of UFC 222 fight with Beneil Dariush

New, comments

Bobby Green was looking for a quick turnaround, but an injury has thrown off his plans.

Green was scheduled to fight Beneil Dariush in what promised to be an interesting lightweight matchup at UFC 222. However, an undisclosed injury has caused him to withdraw from the bout. MMA Fighting confirmed an initial report by Farah Hannoun on Wednesday.

The Southern California-based Green was coming off a solid unanimous victory over Erik Koch at UFC on FOX 27 last month. It marks the four time in the past three years the 31-year-old Green pulled out of a fight due to injury.

No word yet on whether Dariush will remain on the card or whether the UFC will seek a replacement foe.
