UFC lightweight KO artist Drew Dober is set to face Jean Silva at UFC on ESPN 59 in Denver, Colorado next weekend. Silva, who recently won his UFC 303 fight against Charles Jourdain via second-round KO, is on a hot 10-fight winning streak. However, facing someone like Dober on just two weeks’ notice is a significant challenge, especially after Silva’s own recent fight.

Terrance McKinney, a former opponent of Drew Dober, shared his experience on Twitter, cautioning Silva: “Fast turnaround fights against Dober don’t work out well lol.” McKinney stepped in to replace Ricky Glenn on short notice in 2022 and was finished via TKO in round one after knocking down Dober twice in the first minute.

For Dober, this fight could propel him closer to the top 15 rankings if he defeats the streaking Silva. Despite a recent unanimous decision loss to Renato Moicano, Dober’s nine knockouts in the UFC lightweight division demonstrate his staying power.

As for Jean Silva, coming off back-to-back KO wins and a 10-fight winning streak, he has everything to gain but little to lose. This matchup promises to be a sleeper Fight of the Night on the entire card.
