UFC Fight Night 235 results: Renato Moicano cuts wild promo after blood-soaked win over Drew Dober

Renato Moicano was drenched in his own blood at UFC Fight Night 235, but walked away victorious.

In the co-main event Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Moicano (18-5-1 MMA, 10-5 UFC) defeated Drew Dober (27-12 MMA, 13-8 UFC) by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

The win was earned on the mat as Moicano showed off strong grappling abilities and overcame a nasty second-round gash near his right eye.

Dober consistently denied Moicano’s attempts to advance position, but he struggled to get up off his back as Moicano remained in half guard for much of the fight.

Immediately after the win, Moicano cut a highly anticipated promo on the microphone during which he revealed to the world his 62-year-old father had a baby the day before in Brazil.

The appearance was Moicano’s first since a November 2022 submission of Brad Riddell. He’s now won back-to-back fights and four of his most recent five.

The loss is Dober’s second in three fights. A win over Ricky Glenn is sandwiched between Saturday’s result and a May 2023 loss to Matt Frevola.
