Drew Dober-Ricky Glenn Pick, Prediction and Odds
Drew Dober: -450 | Ricky Glenn: +340
An all-action lightweight bout, Drew Dober takes on Ricky Glenn as a -450 favorite. After three straight victories, Dober lost his most recent fight to Matt Frevola via knockout back in May. Glenn lost his last bout against Christos Giagos by knockout in April.
Dober has a 26-12 professional record featuring 13 knockouts and six submissions. In defeat, he has been knocked out twice and submitted four times. He has a diverse mixed martial arts background, including Muay Thai and wrestling. In the Octagon, Dober lands 4.48 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 4.50. On the mat, Dober also lands 0.69 takedowns per bout while defending them at 56%. The takedowns have been a weakness to this point, contributing to two of his last three losses against Islam Makhachev and Brad Riddell. However, his skills fall short only against the division’s elite.
Glenn has a 22-7 record with 13 knockouts and three submissions on the profile, and he has been knocked out once and submitted twice. Glenn also has a well-rounded skill set but does most of his work on the feet. He averages 3.99 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.92. On the mat, Glenn lands 0.56 takedowns per bout while defending them at 68%. He has faced weaker competition, however.
Dober enters the week with a prohibitive price tag, but he deserves to be the favorite with the more well-rounded skill set after fighting superior competition.
