Drew Dober

USA

Improves to 6-1 in past seven bouts
LightweightUFC
May 13, 2020
Dober defeated Alexander Hernandez via TKO (punches) at 4:25 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Dober continues his winning ways. The Muay Thai specialist was inconsistent in the early portion of his UFC career, but he has been money of late. His latest triumph over Hernandez was a typical Dober performance. He picked his opponent apart on the feet and handled anything Hernandez threw his way in return. Dober (one career loss via knockout) is exceedingly durable for a guy who spends most of his time in kickboxing matches. There are legitimate concerns about Dober's ability to compete in anything other than any extended striking battle, but he's clearly trending in the right direction. Dober is 6-1 dating back to July 2017, with four of those wins coming via KO. He's going to get a well-known opponent his next time out. In the meantime, he'll get to cash in a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus.

Dober (22-9-0, 1 NC) is scheduled to face Diego Ferreira (17-2-0) in a lightweight fight at UFC Oklahoma City on May 2, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Dober has won five of his last six fights. He finished off the most recent two with first-round victories. He will look to carry that momentum into his bout against Ferreira, who is coming off the biggest win of his career at UFC 246 in January, when he submitted Anthony Pettis.
Massive KO win at UFC 246
LightweightUFC
January 18, 2020
Dober defeated Nasrat Haqparast via TKO (punches) at 1:10 of Round 1 at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Easy work. A technical Muay Thai specialist with legitimate power, Dober ran through Haqparast after one crushing left hand changed the tone of the fight a minute or so in. Dober followed it up with plenty of unnecessary shots before referee Mark Smith finally decided he had seen enough. Dober has very quietly won five of his past six fights dating back to July 2017. His ceiling is limited because he offers little other than his stand-up game, but Dober can hang with any man in the lightweight division in an extended kickboxing match.
Scheduled to fight Jan. 18

Dober is set to fight Nasrat Haqparast at a UFC event in Las Vegas on Jan. 18, Farah Hannoun of mmajunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dober owns a 7-5-1 record in UFC fights but is fresh off a first-round knockout of Marco Polo Reyes back in June and has also won four of his last five bouts. Dober is a talented fighter but Haqparast is two inches taller and is also a much younger and more explosive fighter who is looking to make a name for himself in the UFC ranks. Dober will look to start his own win streak and end Haqparast's when the two meet in the ring in a couple of months.
Destroys Marco Polo Reyes
LightweightUFC
June 29, 2019
Dober defeated Marco Polo Reyes via KO (punches) at 1:07 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Minneapolis.
ANALYSIS
Dober is known for his quality stand up game and those skills were on full display in this one. Facing an overmatched and non-competitive opponent, Dober smashed Reyes to the tune of 17-5 edge in the total strikes landed department over the duration of the 67-second bout. Dober has always been supremely talented, but he is set to turn 31 years old in October. It's time for him to put an extended win streak together. Saturday was a good start.
