“It is an interesting world we live in,” said Green. “I felt I won but when we got these judges, you know. I think I’m done. I think I’m done. I’m going to retire. I’m going to focus on my kids. Focus on their upbringing. We give a lot of time away for this sport from my family. I’m done. Thank you all for supporting me. I retire.”
“I don’t have to deal with the f***ing judges or deal with some of the lifestyle that comes with this,” he continued. “Thank you all for your support.
