CHARLOTTE – Drew Dober felt he deserved to get his hand raised in the UFC on FOX 27 “Fight of the Night,” even if others disagree.
Dober (19-8 MMA, 5-4 UFC) beat welterweight Frank Camacho (21-6 MMA, 1-2 UFC) by unanimous decision in a competitive main-card fight at Saturday’s event, which took place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.. and aired on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Under the scoring criteria as he knows it, Dober said his performance was superior, though media scores were essentially split down the middle, according to MMADecisions.com.
“It was up in the air,” Dober told MMAjunkie after the FOX-televised bout. “Things happen in your head differently than they happen in the audience’s eyes. So of course I remember the sweeps and all the stuff he was doing well, but once I watch the tape and talked to my corners, I think I won with just my volume, my punching power and just my constant pressure and making contact.”
Dober and Camacho each earned an additional $50,000 for their efforts in producing the “Fight of the Night.” For Dober, it’s exactly the type of fight he wants every time he steps in the octagon, and he hopes the UFC will oblige him with another all-action opponent.
“Fighting, entertaining the fans and getting paychecks is always nice, so let’s get as many as possible,” Dober said. “I’ve got no names. Anyone who wants to stand and trade with me, I’m down.”
