Green follows in the footsteps of Derek Brunson, Robbie Lawler and Bobby Voelker as Strikeforce fighters to ink UFC bouts in the past few days. The fight is likely expected to take place on the prelims.
Green (19-5) is on a four-fight win streak. His last loss was by split decision to Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante in 2011.
Volkmann (15-3) sports a 6-3 record competing inside the Octagon. The former NCAA All-American is 5-1 in his last six fights overall.
