Russell Doane Says He Quit His Job After Getting a Shot at the UFC
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.03.2014

Russell Doane recently spoke about his fight against Leandro Issa at UFC Fight Night 34. Check out the highlights

On getting a call from the UFC: "[My trainer is] like, ‘Are you OK?' I was like, ‘I don't know, man.' I was too excited to do anything. I didn't know if I was going to scream or sit down and cry."

On his immediate reaction: "I quit my job – I had to. This is the next level. I can't be training, go to work all day, and maybe train later. I just had to. Things have to be changed."

On the fight with Jared Papazian that got him his UFC shot: "He'd never been put away with strikes. For the first time, I really stuck to a game plan, which was to mix it up. For me, I've been learning. Before, I went in and just winged it. I know I can do it again. I can stick to what I've learned and what I've been told over this fight camp."

On Issa: "He is not just any Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. He's decorated. He's proven himself. He didn't just get his black belt from some dude. We've been working around that, of course."

On Renan Barao and Urijah Faber: "They have the experience; they have the knowledge. Definitely, they have their style, and you look at Barao and Faber, and they're killers. But now that I get this opportunity, I can learn."
