CABMMA official: ‘We can’t change the result’ of Drew Dober vs. Leandro Silva
Drew Dober is planning on appealing his UFC Fight Night 62 loss against Leandro Silva, but it’s unlikely that he will have any success in the process. Dober lost via submission in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night, even though he neither tapped nor lost consciousness as "Buscape" applied a guillotine. Still, referee Eduardo Herdy stepped in and called the fight over. And even though it was a blatant misjudgment, his bizarre mistake might not be enough for Dober to get the result overturned to a no-contest, according to Cristiano Sampaio, COO of the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA).
