grub doesn't recognisez it:

 Possible partitions are:
   Partition num: 0,  Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xb
Hmm.  Are you sure about the partition type 0xb?  It should be 0xa5
I believe.
I can't recall if DragonFly uses UFS2.  If so, you will need a very
recent version of grub to recognize it.  (I converted a FBSD4 system
to DragonFly, so I know I'm running the older UFS.)  Anyway grub
definitely does work for DragonFly exactly same as for FreeBSD.
