“He has been on a good winning streak, so anytime you beat somebody like that, you can steal some of their momentum. He’s starting to build a good name for himself too, so I think a win does good for me and I still need to prove that I can hang with the best of them. And coming out and beating up Bobby Green will kind of prove that I belong in that upper echelon of athletes.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports)
UFC lightweight Pat Healy (29-17) is only 30 years old but has more fights than most of his elders. “Bam Bam” made his professional debut a few months after his eighteenth birthday and hasn’t looked back since, taking on all-comers and finding success against a number of notable adversaries. However, it’s been nearly a year since Healy’s last win after a failed drug test for marijuana use cost him a victory over Jim Miller and he fell on the scorecards to Khabib Nurmagomedov in his return to the ring. Healy will look to get his career back on track this weekend when he faces Bobby Green (21-5) at UFC on FOX 9. The bearded brawler recently offered up his thoughts on a number of topics during an interview with UFC.com where he discussed the importance of beating Green, waxed poetic about the old days, and admitted it’s time for him to return to what he does best in terms of earning wins.
