Bobby Green explains injury that forced him out of UFC 169 bout

Bobby Green has been on a tear since joining the UFC. He has won all three of his UFC fights, and has pushed his winning streak to seven straight. He most recently defeated Pat Healy at UFC on FOX 9, which was his second win in 5 weeks. After the fight, he was scheduled to face off against fellow Lightweight prospect, Abel Trujillo at UFC 169.

Unfortunately, Green suffered an injury that forced him to pull out of the bout with Trujillo. Former WEC Lightweight champion, Jamie Varner, has stepped up on short notice and will take on Trujillo in February. Today, Bobby Green took to Twitter to explain the injury that forced him out of the bout.

Hopefully Green heals up quickly and we see him continue his successful run in 2014.
