Review: 2014-09-13, some good exchanges between Iuri Alcantara and Russell Doane but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two. The black belt in Bjj Iuri Alcantara entered this fight with a professional mma record of 30-5-0 (83% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.8 bantamweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is TJ Dillashaw), he comes off two consecutive wins in 2014 having won against Wilson Reis and Vaughan Lee; before these two fights he had lost against Urijah Faber in 2013 (=Faber vs Alcantara).
His opponent, Russell Doane, has an official record of 14-3-0 (79% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.24 in the same weight class, he suffered his last defeat in 2013 when he faced Kyle Aguon (via split decision), after that bout he won three consecutive fights: against Jared Papazian, Leandro Issa (=Issa vs Doane) and Marcus Brimage. Alcantara vs Doane is on the undercard of Antonio Silva vs Andrei Arlovski 2 – UFC FN 51. Watch the video and rate this fight!
