Bobby Green had a lot on his mind heading into UFC on Fox 12 Saturday but didn't let that deter him from picking up the biggest win of his career over Josh Thomson.
Green, still mourning his brother's passing, put on the performance of a lifetime against a legit top-five lightweight contender. Green stepped in on late notice for an injured Michael Johnson to face Thomson, and despite the winning streak Green was on, most fans pegged Thomson down for a win.
The fight ended up going to a split decision, but it's still a huge win for Green. Stepping in on late notice is tough for anyone, much less going up against the No. 3-ranked lightweight in the UFC. With the huge victory, Green will likely see himself shoot up the lightweight rankings and into another high-profile bout.
That fight is likely to be against any of the men on this list.
