Drew Dober is on an impressive run of form. The American has won his last three on the bounce with all of those victories coming via stoppage. In fact, his last six wins have all been finishes. Dober’s last loss came against Brad Ridell last year as he dropped a unanimous decision – but still walked away with a bonus for Fight of the Night. Prior to that, the Bellator veteran was submitted by the champion, Islam Makhachev.

However, Dober claims the UFC wouldn’t allow him to fight Pimblett as they know he would beat the Brit.
