Green (29-13-1 MMA, 10-8-1 UFC) showed resistance to Makhachev (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) in the opening moments of the 160-pound catchweight fight at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, but within a few minutes he was taken down and battered into a first-round TKO.
After scoring a win at UFC 271 earlier this month, Green had a lot of moments and focus around him. Some of that luster was taken away with his defeat, but Green remains a fan favorite and likely still is poised for some exciting matchups in the lightweight division.
