Drew Dober is chock-full of confidence ahead of Curtis Blaydes' headlining fight with Derrick Lewis at UFC Vegas 19.
Blaydes' path to a UFC heavyweight title has been roadblocked by one major ache, Francis Ngannou. "Razor" has only suffered two professional losses and they are both to "The Predator". Dober caught up with Fightful prior to Saturday's card and put over his Elevation Fight Team.
"Oh, I hate Curtis. Can we just take him off the list?" Dober teases. "I think Curtis Blaydes is one of the best heavyweights in the world currently. He's such a dangerous dude. As far as the cream of the crop in the heavyweight division, he's the best."
"Look at the way he performs. He only has two losses to the same guy," Dober asserts. "Everyone else, he just manhandles."
UFC Vegas 19 takes place from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, February 20. The ESPN+ card is headlined by heavyweight contenders Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis. Keep up with Fightful for all your fight night coverage.
