UFC Fight Night Las Vegas tips: Bobby 'King' Green looks for a royal showing against Jared Gordon

Bobby 'King' Green takes on Jared 'Flash' Gordon in Las Vegas in a lightweight bout which will be essential in getting either man back on track in the UFC. Check out our key stats and suggested bets.

Lightweights take centre stage as Bobby 'King' Green takes on Jared 'Flash' Gordon in a bout which will be essential in getting either man back on track in the UFC.
With 20 fights inside the UFC and a further 24 outside of the UFC, Green is the definition of a veteran but his recent exploits at the top of the division have put doubt into the idea he could be much more.
With losses to Islam Makhachev and Drew Dober in his last two bouts, both coming by comprehensive finish, questions have been asked if time has run out for Green at the highest level.
But you can't keep Green down for long, his announcement that after his bout with Gordon he will be legally changing his name to "King" may seem irrelevant, but it shows the confidence the California native still has in his own ability.
Gordon may not have the experience of Green, but he has certainly gotten his degree from the school of hard knocks.
Embarking on his sixth year in the UFC, Gordon has faced off against top talents Charles Oliveira and Grant Dawson during his octagon tenure, as well as losing a controversial split decision to the UFC's scouse superstar Paddy Pimblett in his last outing.
A fighter with unquestionable heart, Gordon's recovery from heroin addiction has been a huge motivation for him inside the cage and he often uses his platform to support other addicts.
Both men enter this bout coming off losses, Green's flirtation with retirement prior to this bout and Gordon's two losses in his last three bouts leave some ambiguity pertaining to their preparation for this bout.
If either man is to make a run at the top 15 in the future, a win here is absolutely crucial.

Key stats

86% of Gordon's wins in the UFC have come by decision.
70% of Green's fights have gone to decision.

Suggested bets

Fight to go the distance? Yes.
