As the event unfolded, Green (29-13-1 MMA, 10-8-1 UFC) felt compelled to explain what had transpired, and he did so by saying that a failed USADA drug test had resulted in the cancellation of the fight.
“I was supposed to do this live last week, but the people, the powers that be told me I shouldn’t do it,” Green said.
“I’m not supposed to do it now, but f*ck it. … So, I want to tell you guys something, I want to tell you a story. I’ll tell you why I didn’t fight when I was supposed to fight Jim Miller.”
“I’m training now, I’m getting ready to fight Jim Miller,” Green said.
“They called me and said, ‘Hey, what have you been taking? You tested positive for testosterone.’ I’m like, what? What? In 20 years, I’ve never tested positive for anything. In 20 years of my sport. What do you mean? … So I come back, take all the pictures, show them all those bottles. They go, ‘Hey, it’s that one right there. DHEA. That’s a banned substance on our list, and you’re now in failure, and the fight is off.’ A week before the fight. I’m crushed.”
“I would never try to cheat,” Green said.
“I would never try to lie to my public. I’m against drugs, I’m against PEDs. I would never even think about those things. I’ve never even looked at the site to know what is banned and what is not. I don’t give a f*ck because I don’t pay attention to drugs. That’s not my issue.”
