Paul Felder was on commentary duties at UFC Vegas 71, and Bobby Green — who is now known as “King” — isn’t happy with how he called his fight.

Green fought Felder’s good friend and teammate Jared Gordon on the card, and the UFC color commentator seemingly did get emotional about the no-contest ending. “King” initially finished Gordon with strikes after a clash of heads, and Felder was animated on the mic during the disastrous finish involving his friend. He also reacted to UFC staff seemingly reigning him in as he was heard saying “I know, I’m calmed down.”

Green wasn’t happy after hearing this, and seems to have issued a threat to Paul Felder.

“When we see each other, you know what time it is too,” Green told MMA Fighting. “We’re going to have some words when I see him. I’m gonna wait until we see each other face to face. When we see each other, he knows what time it is too. It’s just like, bro, stop with all that emotional bulls—t. He was over there, ‘Come on!’ I’m like, bro, come on now, bro, like do your f—ng job, and then I heard him say that, [the UFC] told him to calm down. He was too emotional. Do your f—n job.

“And secondly, I felt like he was d—k-riding, because [Gordon is] his homie, he lived with this dude and s—t. Like, bro, don’t d—k-ride? Keep that s—t straight up.”

Paul Felder, a former UFC lightweight himself, apologized for being emotional, but didn’t back down from the idea of being confronted.
