Burkman (28-15, 1NC) will be looking to snap a three fight win streak, as he has failed to get his hand raised in his previous three bouts. The first loss came to Paul Felder by decision, before Burkman was defeated by Zak Ottow, also by decision. In his most recent outing, the 37-year-old was submitted in the first round of his bout against Michel Prazeres at UFC Fortaleza.
Dober (17-8, 1NC) was stopped by Olivier Aubin-Mercier in his last bout at UFC 206. Prior to that, the American stopped Jason Gonzalez in the first round of their bout at UFC 203. This win was Dober’s second straight, at the 28-year-old defeated Scott Holtzman in the fight before.
UFC 214 takes place live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, on July 29, 2017. The card is set to be headlined by a light heavyweight championship fight between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones.
