UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, April 22 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a heavyweight fight between Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes. Also notable on the main card is a lightweight fight between Bobby Green and Jared Gordon.
Green (29-14-1) is on a two-fight losing streak looking to get back on track. The veteran lost to Drew Dober by the way of a second-round KO last December. The 36-year-old California product has a 71” reach and 52% striking accuracy. “King” Green has proven to go distance as his average fight time checks in at 12:07.

Overall, he has won 4 of his last 6 bouts in the octagon. 11 of his 19 wins have come by decision and like Green he can go the distance as well, coming in with an average fight time of 12:03.
