    Desmond Green will be the #1 BW in the world someday, you heard it here first.
    This kid has athleticism and slick skills to boot, and he's still young.
    He bounced back from the Holobaugh loss with a vengeance!

    Here is a highlight vid:

    He's got a 1st round KO win over Miguel Torres and a win over Rob Font.

    Between Cruz's time on the shelf, Faber's two fights with Barao, the Barao/TJ auto rematch weight miss, the Barao/TJ rematch failure, BW has gotten really stale.

    I'm not even sure these guys are really the best in the world considering they keep recycling them and shoving them onto UFC cards, while you have real A Level BW athletes like Desmond Green out there.
    Hey Joe Silva, sign this kid ASAP. I bet he'd look good in Reebok gear.

    I thought he fought mainly at featherweight? I could see the UFC signing him at some point if he goes on nice run but I doubt he'll come in and clean house.

    He's my favorite bantamweight outside the UFC, he's looking a lot better in Titan FC, should be undefeated their

    Des Green who got cut from Bellator? his striking was pretty bad from what I remember.

    I'd rather see Daniel Straus in the UFC.

    Even gold belts gotta troll at some point I guess.

    Yeah you like him so much you don't even know what weight division he fights in.

    Not only is he not a bantamweight, but he struggles to make 145. He had to lop off his dreads to make weight against Siler.

    Another poster trying to sound like he know what he's talking about.

    You've clearly only just heard of him, wrong weight class and far from a future champ.

    Green is hellaciously boring.

    Plus a Bellator 'reject'. Dudes who were released by BFC tend to need a little streak to get the 'Bellator stink' off them before the UFC want them....if they're as boring as Green, he'll need 5-6 wins.

    If I were going to pick a Bellator FW to declare a future UFC BW champ I'd pick Freire

    But then again, I'm reasonable

    Logically, wouldn't they have to sign Holobaugh first?
