Strikeforce Vets Bobby Green, Caros Fodor Headed To The UFC

Bobby Green and Caros Fodor will join the likes of Nick Diaz, Jake Shields and Robbie Lawler inside the Octagon, as the former Strikeforce fighters have signed UFC deals.

Green will meet Jacob Volkmann at UFC 156, while Fodor takes on Sam Stout at UFC 157. The Green-Volkmann bout was first reported by MMAjunkie.com and has yet to be confirmed by the UFC.

Green (19-5) has gone 5-1 in his last six, the same mark Volkmann (15-3) has while competing inside the Octagon.

Fodor (7-2) was recently defeated by Pat Healy after putting together a five-fight win streak. Stout (18-8-1) is an even 7-7 for the UFC.
