Ring of Combat 71 took place from the Tropicana in Atlantic City NJ and featured an all time classic fight between featherweights Tim Dooling and Dennis Buzukja. Seriously, this is one of those fights that everyone should go out of their way to see.
Dennis Buzukja took a unanimous decision after three of the damndest back and forth rounds of combat and called out Sean Shelby of the UFC to sign him to a deal. Honestly after this fight I’d be surprised if they didn’t. Buzukja was clearly the better technical and accurate striker and was controlling most of the fight, but Dooling had absolutely zero quit in him. Doolings performance was one of the most incredible displays of heart and determination that I’ve ever seen in the Cage. He has some aspects of his game to work on but he is a guy who should also be on the UFCs radar.
Be sure to order the replay on FITE TV. Keep in mind that this is a small promotion and the production is amateur at best, but this fight makes up for it. Trust me you won’t be disappointed. Use my code 6ml9d45 when you order for a $10 credit. Ring of Combat 71
