Bobby Green appears to have zero doubts about the winner of a potential matchup between him and NBA superstar LeBron James.
The 5-foot-10 lightweight is scheduled to face Grant Dawson in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 229 on Saturday.
Green, nicknamed “The King,” recently discovered that his opponent’s nickname “KGD” stands for “King Grant Dawson.” This prompted Green to challenge Dawson.
“There can only be one king,” Green said in an interview with TMZ Sports. “I just found out Grant Dawson’s competition name is ‘KGD’. There can only be one king. Let’s find out. The other guy’s head is about to be chopped off!”
Of course, the most famous athlete to use the nickname “The King” is Los Angeles Lakers star forward James. Despite the humor in Green’s remarks, he was confident in the outcome of a potential battle with the NBA’s all-time scoring leader.
“If LeBron wanted to fight me, it wouldn’t be close,” Green said. “He’s a big shot, but he doesn’t have the skills. I’m sorry. “Skills pay the bills, sir. ”
When asked if he would take the fight seriously, Green added: “Dime on dime. One moment, not even thinking about it. Oh my god, yeah. I’d wax his ass!”
Green bounced back from a three-fight losing streak with a win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 291 in July.
