Russell Doane Looking To Improve As A Fighter

Russell Doane

Russell Doane might have edged out Marcus Brimage At UFC 175, but that does not mean that he is happy with his fight or his performance. The fighter who has a 14-3 record is looking to improve his fighting skills going forward.

“I think I have a lot of work to do. I’m not completely comfortable in the octagon yet. I’m still hesitant. I’m not where I want to be as a fighter, said Doane. You see me in the gym, I move a lot more. I think it’s just jitters. It’s really a big deal for me to be there.”

Russell Doane (14-3) Has six knockouts, five submissions and 2 decision victories. He has been submitted twice and lost by decision once. Prior to making his UFC debut, he was 3-1 in his next four fights. He made his UFC debut against Leandro Issa, which he lost via submission at UFC Fight Night – Saffiedine vs. Lim on Jan / 04 / 2014. He is coming off a win over Marcus Brimage At UFC 175.

“If I’m going to be completely honest with myself, I’m not 100 percent happy with my performance. I had a lot of respect for his standup and he had a lot of respect for my standup, and I think it held us back a little bit. I just think I faded; I think I could have controlled the octagon more.”

At this time, he does not have a scheduled fight.
