Jacob Volkmann vs. Bobby Green Set for UFC 156 Super Bowl Weekend


Another UFC vs. Strikeforce match has been added to the upcoming UFC 156 card as Jacob Volkmann faces Bobby Green in Las Vegas.

Volkmann announced the fight via Twitter on Friday.

“It’s official. I’m fighting Bobby Green Feb 2nd on UFC 156,” wrote Volkmann. “Vegas anyone?”

Volkmann looks to make it two wins in a row following his rear naked choke submission over Shane Roller at UFC on FX 5 in Minnesota.

Making his Octagon debut will be Strikeforce transfer Bobby Green, who hopes to build on his own four fight win streak.

Green is the latest fighter signed to the UFC after Strikeforce announced their last show scheduled for Jan 12 in Oklahoma City.
