Silva-Dober Result Overturned to No Contest

Following a botched call in the UFC Fight Night bout between Leandro Silva and Drew Dober that saw Silva erroneously awarded a second round submission victory in the March 21 bout in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's MMA commission, CABMMA, overturned the result to a no contest Thursday.

Referee Eduardo Herdy admitted making a mistake in halting the lightweight bout when he did, with Dober pulling free from a guillotine choke at the time of the stoppage.
Records for the two fighters are now 17-2-1, 1 NC for Silva and 15-6, 1 NC for Dober.
