He’s one of the most entertaining strikers in the UFC, using his unique Philly shell guard often to slip punches and counter like a master. He is an entertainer in the cage and exciting during his walkouts — so what’s the Bobby Green walkout song choice?
Bobby Green’s walkout song is I Wonder by Kanye West for his last fight against Drew Dober at UFC Fight Night 216, but he frequently changes his song choice. In the past, he has also used Hit Em Up by 2Pac and What I Look Like by Payroll Giovanni, among others.
Keep scrolling to learn more about his different walkout music picks over his last few fights.

UFC Fight Night 222 (Vs. Jared Gordon)
Bobby fought against Jared Gordon recently, and I’m yet to figure out the actual song.
But it will probably be rap or hip-hop, and I’ll update right here as soon as I have the right track determined!
That fight ended up in a No Contest as Bobby accidentally clashed heads with Jared when attempting a lead elbow strike.
UFC Fight Night 216 (Vs. Drew Dober)
For his fight against Drew Dober at UFC Fight Night 216, Bobby walked out to I Wonder by Kanye West.
This fight built up a ton of anticipation because many fans (I’m one of them) love to watch Green in the cage with his slick shoulder rolling and slips to avoid strikes.
The man certainly has +10 Speed and +5 Foresight which helps him become so hard to hit.
Dober shared, in an interview with The MMA Hour, just how tricky it was to connect with Green in the first round, where he commented that Bobby ‘King’ Green loves to trash talk while fighting.
You can even hear it on the TV event. He’s constantly saying things like “that punch missed,” “nah, that didn’t hurt,” “that hit my elbow,” and “you’ve got nothing.”
What a fighter.
Drew Dober ultimately won the fight with a knockout left-hook after constantly advancing to push Bobby up against the fence, where he ultimately couldn’t slip every strike coming at him.
That defeat marked Bobby Green’s only second knockout loss in his MMA career. So props to Drew for finding the chin!
Both are in a stacked division of the UFC in Lightweight, but perhaps it’s the right weight classes for their frames.Latest MMA Shorts from the Hive...
UFC Fight Night 202 (Vs. Islam Makhachev)
When Bobby Green took on the Dagestan powerhouse that is Islam Makhachev (when most others were avoiding him, might I add!), he walked out to Hit Em Up by 2Pac.
Apparently, Bobby took this fight on short notice. That, combined with the fact he isn’t much of a wrestling fighter, put him at a clear disadvantage for this fight.
The fight began with both looking for striking opportunities and Islam landing a couple of early leg kicks.
But it didn’t take too long into that first round for Makhachev to start grabbing hold of Green and making his striking weapons unusable.
The Dagestani secured a takedown against the fence and smothered Bobby by maintaining top position, eventually leading into the half mount, then full mount.
He ended up finishing with head strikes with his legs fully wrapped around Bobby’s waist as he was unable to break free.
After the fight, Bobby posted a video to his Instagram to let his fans know his post-fight feelings:
“Expensive pain, expensive pain. Wins and losses, wins and losses.
I just wanna thank all my guys, all my people for riding with me. I apologize, but this is what it comes with when you throw this sh*t together, you know what I’m saying?
It was last minute, put it together as much as I can. I appreciate you. The sh*t we do for our families, the sh*t we do for our families, you know? Love you guys.”Bobby Green
It wasn’t really much of a matchup the fans would want to see, for my money. It was always going to go one way.
UFC 271 (Vs. Nasrat Haqparast)
For Bobby’s fight against Nasrat Haqparast at UFC 271, he walked out to What I Look Like by Payroll Giovanni.
The fight was one of Bobby’s most entertaining of late because it was an elite striking display.
He wore down Nasrat’s high guard by constantly jabbing and poking at it, while attempts to retaliate were met with Bobby’s slip-and-counter combinations.
The face of Nasrat Haqparast showed the separation in striking skill during this fight as it was bloody from the get-go.
Bobby won the fight after three rounds by unanimous decision.
Green’s song choice by Payroll Giovanni focuses on how he appears to the world with cars, expensive jewelry, and chasing women.
It has more of a positive message than most rap songs, like, in particular, how it promotes work ethic and building up your own empire, and letting the rest come to you.
UFC 265 (Vs. Rafael Fiziev)
For his entrance at UFC 265, Bobby walked out to No Flockin Freestyle by Kodak Black.
This was a highlight fight because both Bobby and Rafael absolutely love to throw down.
And we fight fans were lucky enough to get a lot of what we wanted in the fight.
Early on, Fiziev couldn’t meet Green’s speed and instead attacked with plenty of low leg kicks.
It seemed clear that Green didn’t want to get into these heavy striking exchanges that Fiziev is known for and instead kept picking away with the long jab and counters.
But those leg attacks just kept coming in the later rounds at Bobby’s legs, midsection, and head! Rafael kept packing on the heat with his heavy kicks.
In the final round, Bobby picked up the pace with some fascinating striking and outpaced Rafael with 74 significant strikes to his opponent’s 35.
Maybe it was the intensity of those connected strikes from Rafael, but Bobby lost the fight by unanimous decision.
I’m still surprised by that result, to be honest, as ‘King’ Green did a ton of work landing direct head strikes throughout that fight to bloody up Rafael’s face.
But it’s just another one of those sketchy decisions from the judge’s scorecards that happen from time to time.
