SCHAUMBURG, IL JULY 24, 2022
We had another entertaining fight out of Paddy Pimblett this weekend at UFC London. Paddy left the octagon relatively unharmed and ready to fight one more time before the end of the calendar year. Many fans of Paddy will say they think he should just keep fighting at the level of competition that he is which is prospects that may have a future in the UFC and others want him to try and jump into the top 15 of the lightweight division.
I simply ran a poll asking if people would be interested in a bout between Drew Dober and Paddy Pimblett at Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY. We got the answer we needed to confirm that this could be a possibility. Drew Dober simply said “I’d be down!” to fight against the scouser. Dober does fight this week and doesn’t have an easy matchup with Rafael Alves but assuming he gets a victory and doesn’t take a ton of blows to earn himself a medical suspension, this seems like it would be a perfect matchup. Two guys who very well could be in the 16-25 range of the lightweight division rankings who have their eyes set on moving up the rankings. Drew Dober brings authenticity and a legit test to Paddy as the 33 year old veteran has been in the octagon with fighters like Terrance McKinney, Islam Makhachev, Beneil Dariush, and more. Is Drew Dober vs. Paddy Pimblett a fight you’d like to see made by the UFC? Please tweet at us @wocmain and let us know!
