Bobby was very active during these years and fought many good battles, even if he lost. In 2020, he earned 3 victories in a row against Clay Guida, Lando Vannata, and Allan Patrick; however, he suffered 2 losses in a row against Thiago Moises and Rafael Fiziev. Many think that Bobby defeated Thiago Moises because Bobby landed way more punches than the Brazilian. Brazilian did damage to Bobby’s face but, Green was very active and dominant for whole rounds. However, judges saw the fight differently. And in the fight with a very experienced kickboxer and talented prospect, he suffered defeat in a close battle against Rafael Fiziev.

Al Iaquinta is a former title challenger. He replaced Max Holloway against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223. This was the fight when Khabib won the title for the first time. Since then, Al earned one victory against Kevin Lee and suffered 2 losses in a row against Donald Cerrone and Dan Hooker. His last appearance was in 2019, more than 2 years ago, against Hooker. Since Hooker and Iaquinta’s battle, Hooker fought 5 times, but Iaquinta did not fight even once.

I think that Bobby will win this bout via unanimous decision. He will open this bout as the favorite with the odd around 1.55, but he is never looking for the finish. He is playing during the fight; he is touching the opponent and fighting at really high speed. La Quinta is more grappler, even though he has only 1 submission victory and 7 KOs. Also, they did not fight for 2 years, so Bobby's activity and Al’s inactivity are massive factors in this about.
