UFC lightweight Bobby Green calls Donald Cerrone 'the most obnoxious a**hole he's ever met'

Bobby Green sounds off on (among several people) fellow UFC lightweight contender Donald Cerrone, who he was scheduled to fight at UFC 178 before the promotion signed Eddie Alvarez.

We've not heard much from UFC lightweight Bobby Green (23-5), who was first slated to fight Jorge Masvidal at UFC 178, then elevated to co-main event status against Donald Cerrone for the same card. When Eddie Alvarez was granted his release by Bellator, the UFC immediately booked Alvarez against Cerrone, and Green will now fight on a different card.

On today's episode of The MMA Hour, Green had plenty to say about Cerrone, accusing him of being obnoxious, sexually harassing women, and making racist remarks at the recent Fan Expo in Las Vegas. MMA Fighting's Dave Doyle has some of the more notable bits from the broadcast:

According to Green, when Cerrone/Alvarez was announced, the UFC tried to re-offer him the Masvidal fight, but instead he opted to turn it down.

Green wasn't done there. He closed out the interview voicing his dislike of Northern Irish lightweight and TUF Smashes winner Norman Parke.

There's nothing like having your Monday start off with interviews like this one, eh? When it becomes available we will include the full video of Green's interview with Ariel Helwani.
