The much-awaited showdown between Islam Makhachev and Bobby Green is all set to happen at UFC Vegas 49.

Green will be having a quick turnaround for the match following his dominant win over Nasrat Haqparast and the veteran will be looking to derail the hype surrounding Makhachev as well. Speaking ahead of the fight, Green criticized Makhachev for being a boring fighter and went on to say that he falls asleep watching Makhachev’s fights.

“With Islam, he does what he does. But to be honest, it’s kind of boring. Even if he’s getting finishes, it’s still been boring. So my whole thing is entertainment, excitement. He can be championship material, but it’s just f*cking boring. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares. I fall asleep watching his fights, then it’s, ‘Oh, there’s the finish.’ They can show a bunch of finishes and it’s cool, but it was sleeping and boring and it’s lackluster. For some of these guys, it’s just a match,” Green said (h/t MMA Junkie).

Despite the claim, Green did admit that Makhachev is championship material.

“Is he championship material? He’s been really downplaying me, and I’m going to keep it 100 for you: He’s a good opponent. I think he’s definitely – he’s been on this win-streak. He is championship material if you’re talking about wins – if you’re talking about just wins. But I feel like when it comes to this MMA stuff, it’s what product you’re selling … We’re all selling something, and the public is going to buy the best thing they can find,” he added.

Islam, meanwhile, noted that he will be looking to make a statement against Green and secure a first-round finish.
