Russell Doane has long proved himself on the local MMA circuit. Now stretching himself into the National and International scene by competing in PXC as well as holding a King Of The Cage Title. Doane has shown the world he is ready for a bigger challenge.
His next step will be to try out for the historic new season of The Ultimate Fighter, in which the coaches will be females for the very first time. There will also be female competitors, which will make the season extra interesting. But for us, watching one of our local superstars, like Doane, is the only dynamic we need. Having made it to the interview portion of the TUF tryouts before, Doane knows what to expect. And he feels that this time, he is prepared.
"When I meet the producers this time, I'm just going to be myself. I think that when I am myself, at the very least, I'm fun."
There will be a fundraiser held at RB Sports Bar & Grill on Thursday, April 4th at 9pm. The proceeds will be dedicated to Russell's expenses for The Ultimate Fighter tryouts. Though the opportunity is a fantastic one, the flight, hotel, and other expenses can be hard to come up with on short notice. With the tryouts being held on April 15th, showing support asap is a must.
Good luck Russell Doane and other Hawaii hopefuls. We believe in you.
