UFC Fight Night Lightweights Clash

Experience to the Fore

Drew Dober and Bobby Green bring experience to the table at UFC Fight Night on Saturday and it should be an exciting fight.

Dober is the current -155 at the sportsbook after consecutive knockout wins, so he’s all the rage ahead of the lightweight fight in Las Vegas.

Let’s check the latest UFC odds, and stats, for Dober vs Green. We’ve plenty of UFC 282 odds for you to consider.

Dober Powering Through

It looked like Dober’s career was at a standstill after being submitted by Islam Makhachev at UFC 259 and then losing to Brad Riddell at UFC 263.

However, the 34-year-old American bounced back in the best way possible with knockouts against Terrance McKinney and Rafael Alves. McKinney and Alves are high-quality fighters and he put them away in the first and third rounds, respectively.

Therefore, we’re not surprised by UFC betting markets having Dober as the favorite to beat Green.

We’ve been working on just being a better athlete,” Dober said before his fight with Alves. “Obviously fixing the holes, but really just trying to get bigger, faster, stronger and then having a better opportunity to really force my technique. It’s been incredible and I feel really good about it.”

There’s no doubt Dober improved in 2022 and he could end the year with a bang. The -155 odds suggest that bookmakers have taken money for him and we expect his odds to firm on fight night.

Green on the Straight and Narrow

We’re not huge fans of fighters who have been banned for drugs, but Green shouldn’t be overlooked as a betting proposition.

The 36-year-old has served his six-month MMA ban and returns on Saturday to fight Dober, so he hasn’t been given an easy return fight.

I’ve been chastised. I’ve been villainized,” Green told reporters at the UFC Apex. “I’ve been anymore of those ‘ized’ [sic] I can come up with – scrutinized – talking about this, that, drugs. Drugs? I fought everybody, I think maybe two people with more than 30 days’ (notice). There’s no way I can be on drugs.”

He was last seen fighting Islam Makhachev in February when losing by first-round knockout, which followed a decision win against Nasrat Haqparast.

Regardless of his personal decisions, Green has performed at a high level throughout his career and the +125 betting online -odds have to be respected.

Dober vs Green Picks & Prediction

We think Green is being punished for his transgressions by being put in the Octagon with Dober, who looks like an excellent bet.

Dober has been putting his opposition to sleep recently and we expect that to continue, so take the -155 and entertain Dober to win by knockout at better odds.

Drew Dober is listed at -155 in our Vegas UFC lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Dober, you have a chance to win $65. Bobby Green is +125, offering a chance to win $125 on a $100 wager.
