UFC are currently attempting to book a lightweight bout between rising contender Brad Riddell and veteran Drew Dober for their June 12th pay-per-view event. News of the potential matchup was first reported by Nolan King, Farah Hannoun and Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie.
Should the fight be confirmed, it will join a card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Riddell will attempt to extend his undefeated run in the UFC. He has picked up three wins since joining the promotion in 2019. His last victory was in September, where he fought to a scorecard win over Alex da Silva.
He now fights Dober, who enters the bout with the experience of 16 fights in the UFC. Dober had a three-fight win streak broken in his most recent appearance, getting submitted with an arm triangle from Islam Makhachev in March.
