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.
