Tenarious Dooley looks to test his striking power against grappler Brandon Boulden at Fight For It XIII

This is your style fight of the night. It’s the classic Striker vs. Grappler match-up, which even after decades of MMA evolution, is still a hotly contested battle. In the case of Tenarious Dooley vs. Brandon Boulden, the story could be called, “Tenacity meets the Bulldog.”

Dooley is going to look for the finish. He’s never hidden this in his style and his team believes in his power. Boulden likes to move forward. He will glue himself to his opponent while improving his position and looking for submissions. Both men are quite explosive overall but it will be Dooley looking to lay hands and use footwork. Boulden will have the edge in kicks and grappling, giving him a slight tactical advantage.

Expect a finish either way it goes.
