Dawson is facing a six-month medical suspension, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dawson was well ahead of his opponent, but Rick Glenn was able to fight back and force a majority draw for Dawson. It was a disappointing effort for Dawson who came in as a massive favorite. He will now need his 11th rib cleared by a doctor to be able to try and rebound again before late April.

Lets huge lead slip away in draw
LightweightUFC

October 23, 2021
Dawson and Rick Glenn fought to a majority draw (29-28, 28-28, 28-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's an absolutely disastrous result for Dawson, and he would almost certainly tell you that himself. There is no way around it. Entering as a monumental -525 favorite, the largest on the entire card, Dawson was well on his way to an easy unanimous decision victory when it all fell apart on him in Round 3. Glenn suddenly found himself a second wind, and Dawson was lucky to survive the round which saw him land just two total strikes compared to 66 from his opponent. Glenn is a savvy veteran, and you aren't going to beat him by fighting just ten minutes. Dawson learned that lesson the hard way. The good news for the 27-year-old Wisconsin native is that he remains undefeated (5-0-1) in his first half dozen bouts with the company, although he should be a perfect 6-0.
Re-booked against Glenn

Dawson will now face Rick Glenn in a lightweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Oct. 23, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dawson was scheduled to take on Diego Ferreira in early-October, and while he's still hopeful that fight will be rescheduled in December, he'll take another opponent in hopes of staying active. While Glenn won't give him the same opportunity to rise up in the rankings, Dawson will still enter this fight as approximately a (-330) betting favorite. He's riding a five-fight winning streak since entering the UFC and will enter with a distinct grappling advantage, though Glenn has the edge in volume striking. Dawson will give up two inches in height, but has a two-inch reach advantage on paper.

Dawson's fight for the UFC event on Oct. 2 has been removed from the card after his opponent, Diego Ferreira, suffered an injury in training, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ferreira backed out of the fight Wednesday and it seems as though the UFC was unable to book Dawson a replacement. Ferreria did publicly mention he hopes to re-book the fight with Dawson once he's healthy again. Dawson is an up-and-coming prospect in the UFC and will look to remain perfect in the promotion his next time in the Octagon.

Dawson's opponent, Diego Ferreira, for the Oct. 2 card has withdrawn due to injury, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear if the UFC will try to find a replacement to keep Dawson on the cart. Dawson last fought back in March when he defeated Leonardo Santos via KO. That pushed his record with the UFC to a perfect 5-0-0.
