Bobby Green unhappy with fallout over Cerrone 'racist stuff' comments

Bobby Green is finding a lot of fault with how his comments about Donald Cerrone saying "racist stuff" were publicized.

There really isn't a lot of context missing here. Following an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Bobby Green's comments about Donald Cerrone were the talk of the day. Green went on the record to say that, at his first UFC fan expo, Cerrone "said some racist stuff." Green then went into further detail about Cerrone "groping every woman in his line" under the threat that he could knock out their boyfriends if they didn't like it. All told, it was a 25 minute interview with a lot of dirt. According to Green's twitter feed, it may also be the last interview he does for a while, as he was unhappy with how the story ended up being presented:


It's not hard to see the angle Green is gunning for here, that his experiences were just his take at the time, and that he's not trying to cast aspersions. But, in light of everything he said and the detail he went into, it only comes off as trying to deflect responsibility for his own actions. It's hard to imagine telling a story about someone doing "racist stuff" and "groping women" and not expect that those comments are going to cause a stir or make headlines.
