Drew Dober brutally KO’s Bobby Green in all-out war at UFC Vegas 66

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to us tonight, December 17, 2022, for the final promotional event of the year, UFC Vegas 66.

Headlining the event is a middleweight matchup between no. 3 ranked former title challenger Jared Cannonier (15-6) and no. 7 ranked Sean Strickland (25-4), and it is to be co-headlined by a lightweight bout showcasing no. 9 ranked Arman Tsarukyan (18-3) and no. 12 ranked Damir Ismagulov (25-1).

Our second bout on the main card tonight came in the lightweight division between a pair of exciting strikers in Drew Dober (25-11) and Bobby Green (29-13-1).

Dober had won his last two-straight via knockout coming into tonight’s contest, going 5-2 in his last seven securing all five victories via knockout, while Green had gone 5-3 in his last eight, most notably becoming the first, and only man to knock Al Iaquinta out back in November of last year.

Official Result: Drew Dober def. Bobby Green via KO (punch) at 2:45 of round two

Dober controls the center of the octagon throughout the first round but is getting tagged up considerably. Green is incredibly sharp and precise with his boxing tonight, as he begins to really bust Dober’s face up. He also doubles the striking totals throughout the first five minutes.

Dober stays right in his grill though, he doesn’t take one backwards step, and he’s landing some hard shots of his own.

The output of both these men tonight is insane. Both of their chins are holding up; Dober is pressing the action, eating a lot of shots, like a lot of them, and Green is taking hard shots whilst giving off twice as many.

Dober doesn’t get discouraged though, he bites down and continues pressing forward. He has Green up along the fence midway through the second round, and he sits down on his combination beautifully, landing a vicious left hand that floors Green instantly.

Drew Dober has got to be the most game fighter in the UFC right now, wow what a performance. He’s now 6-2 in his last eight as he improves his professional record to 26-11, and he just tied Dustin Poirier for the most knockouts in UFC lightweight history at eight.
