Drew Dober talks about his goals for 2024

During the recent media day, Drew Dober spoke about the opponents he would wish to face in 2024 and explained why he’s excited to fight Renato Moicano.

“For me, it’s whoever is available as soon as possible,” Dober said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I don’t know how Saturday is going to go. I might need time to heal up, but if I don’t, I want to get back in there.

My objective is to have more fights, not the special fights. I’m the type of guy that will fight unranked fighters. I’ll fight whoever, whenever. I’m like the new Donald Cerrone. Just throw me in there, I’ll get the job done.

In 2024, I’m looking to fight four times. Whoever is available. If you want me to say some names, I’ll say: Dan Hooker (Rafael) Fiziev, Jalin Turner. All three would be fun fights. We will see who becomes available and when it’s time, and I’ll be there.

Drew Dober on fighting Renato Moicano

"The opportunity to fight a guy like Moicano, who’s equally as vicious, violent, and he’s a gamer, he’s fought guys like Jose Aldo, The Korean Zombie, he took RDA (Rafael dos Anjos) on like five days’ notice.

The guy is a monster. These are the fights that excite me because I know he’s going to bring out that in me as well, and it’s going to be bloody, it’s going to be violent and fun. A smile on both our faces. These are the fights and moments I want to be remembered”.
