Bobby Green rules out retirement after brutal KO loss to Jalin Turner at UFC Austin I ain't going nowhere

Off the back of his gruesome first round KO loss to Jalin Turner in last night’s reworked UFC Austin co-main event clash, perennial lightweight contender, Bobby Green insists he has no plans to call time on his storied career, off the back of a brutal finish.

Green, the current number thirteen ranked lightweight contender, co-headlined UFC Austin last night against short-notice replacement, Turner, dropping a thunderous opening round knockout loss to the Dana White’s Contender Series alum – receiving a slew of ground strikes despite being visibly unconscious, with referee, Kerry Hatley receiving mass criticizm as a result.

The loss snapped San Bernardino native, Green’s eye-catching two-fight winning run, which included a submission win over former interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson back in July, which came before a blistering 33-second KO win over Grant Dawson in an October main event clash.
