Much like Babe Ruth stood at home plate on a baseball diamond and announced his intentions with a singular point toward the outfield, Brady Green, an amateur mixed martial artist out of Northern California’s Bay Area, comfortably composed a post on Twitter about what fight fans can expect from him when he faces Joseph Corona at Dragon House 27: a second-round submission via triangle choke.
On Episode 89 of the @norcalfightmma Podcast (link here), Green appeared as a special guest and was afforded an opportunity to shy away from his bold prediction; however, he decided to double down on what his course of action will be on November 18, 2017 inside San Francisco’s Kezar Pavilion.
Interestingly enough, Green and Corona were scheduled to meet at Dragon House 26, though the lightweight affair was unexpectedly cut from the card at the last-minute. According to Green, the strategy for Corona at Dragon House 26 greatly differed from how he’s envisioned things will take shape at Dragon House 27.
Green began, “Before, the plan was just to stand up with him because I was going for the knockout. He said he was going to knock me out, so I wanted to play the stand up game with him. But now, I don’t know if you saw my Tweet a couple weeks ago?”
I've decided to win my November 18th fight via second round triangle choke. I'll post fight pics and a screenshot of this tweet on the 19th😉

With a voice like the deep, inviting call of a foghorn, Green invited listeners into his thought-process on Corona as an opponent, which, without context, could be perceived as a brash and disrespectful scratch of the nails across a chalkboard.
“I know in his pre-fight interview, he said he didn’t train on the ground. He said he was a boxer. I know anybody can lie about their experience.” As Green continued, it’s obvious his confidence, regardless of the person he’s squaring off with, in the triangle stems from a place of comfort on the canvas, “I love to do it [the triangle], and it’s probably one of my favorite moves to practice. I’ve had good success with it in Jiu-Jitsu competitions, and I hit it rolling a lot.”
Whether Green secures the victory at Dragon House 27 with his legs or not, he discussed the importance of having his hand raised, yet he understands the ramifications of not following through on his 140-character promise.
“It’s just kind of a publicity stunt for me. I’ll take any win I can get, but I’ll be a little disappointed because I’ll have to deal with a few people saying, ‘Hey man, what happened to the triangle?’ I’m definitely going to do what I can to pull it off, but a win is still a win in my book.”
