UFC veteran Drew Dober will fight to break a losing streak when facing Ricky Glenn at the promotion’s March 12th event, per an announcement by Glenn’s management team.
The matchup joins a “Fight Night” card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment but is expected to happen in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Dober developed a two-fight skid last year after taking two big losses at lightweight.
In March, Dober was submitted in the third round by rising contender Islam Makhachev. Three months later, he lost a decision to another prominent 155-pound fighter in Brad Riddell.
Dober has broken a two-fight losing streak in his career before. His UFC run actually started with two losses, although he was able to turn things around in 2014 with a win over Jamie Varner.
Glenn made his return last year, competing after being absent in 2019 and 2020.
He scored a flashy victory in June, putting away Joaquim Silva in just 37 seconds with strikes. He returned in October, fighting three rounds against Grant Dawson for a majority draw.
