Bobby Green really wants to be king.

Unfortunately for the No. 15-ranked lightweight, the monarchy ended with George III back in 1783, so unless he somehow infiltrates England’s royal family, the only way for Green to be legally recognized as “King” is to change his name.

Mission accomplished.

“I know I worked so hard at Bobby Green but the point was to show you go from nothing to a King,” Green posted on social media, along with a series of legal documents and the hashtag #kingarmy.

Opponent Paddy Pimblett wasted no time mocking the newly-crowned King.

“This mushroom has actually changed his name to King,” Pimblett wrote. “So you can officially call me the Kingslayer on July 28th.”

“The Baddy” looks to settle their longstanding score at UFC 304.

Pimblett (21-3) is undefeated in five trips to the Octagon and was last seen capturing a unanimous decision victory over the fading Tony Ferguson at UFC 296. As for Green (32-15-1, 1 NC), he rebounded from a knockout loss to Jalin Turner to outpoint Jim Miller at UFC 300 back in April.
