Fresh off his second UFC appearance, Terrance McKinney already has his third booked – and it’s only days away.
With Ricky Glenn out of UFC Fight Night 203 due to injury, McKinney (12-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has stepped in on eight days’ notice to take on Drew Dober (23-11 MMA, 9-7 UFC), the promotion announced Friday. The event takes place Saturday, March 12 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Glenn will undergo surgery on a torn groin, he announced in an interview Friday with VegasOdds.
McKinney, 27, signed with the UFC for a short-notice opportunity in June 2021. At UFC 263, McKinney knocked out Matt Frevola in seven seconds, one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history. This past Saturday at UFC Fight Night 202, McKinney won again when he submitted Fares Ziam in Round 1.
Dober looks to turn his luck around after back-to-back losses to top contenders Islam Makhachev and Brad Riddell. The consecutive defeats came on the heels of a streak in which Dober went 6-1 with four knockout wins.
