Bobby Green is reportedly being tended to by UFC doctors after collapsing backstage at the UFC 258 weigh-ins.
UFC President Dana White told the media that Green collapsed backstage, according to TSN's Aaron Bronsteter. Green (27-11-1) was one of the last fighters to weigh-in on Friday, but he made the lightweight limit of 156. Green was scheduled to square off with fellow veteran Jim Miller (32-15).
