Observing a 4-4 start to his career, welterweight Jordan Dowdy knew he had to step things up in 2018 and then begin to get his record past .500 if he had been going to make any head way in his career. Luckily he managed to accomplish just that with back-to-back wins last year.
Against Eddie Larrea at Shamrock Hamilton Academical in January, then versus Jeff Crotty in April at Bellator, Dowdy managed to select up early round finishes and also get himself back on a more very positive course.
“Then usually the main one in April was simply perfect; diet, camp, everything came together and it had been great. It had been almost like that I had been auto pilot. It had been a excellent experience.
“You will find a few mistakes that I made early in my own career. I had some matters that didn’t go my way, however ’s fighting moves. I was there with an even record, also that I wasn’t doing myself any favors, so that I really had to sure up two or three items which were going on. ”
Together with the changes he’s left, Dowdy is just like he’s hitting the sweet spot between physical skills and experience to start to showcase the sort of fighter they is.
“I know for a fact in contrast to who I had been last year which I’m completely upgraded,” said Dowdy. “within my strength, in my power for my own conditioning, in my own Jiu-Jitsu and in my magnificent I’m in my own prime.
“” I presume that comes with being on your early 30’therefore because this ’so whenever your athletic summit couples with your adventure. I think I’m within that good goldilocks zone at which what’s coming together. So today is the time to make this run and also do what I will with the rivalry window which ’therefore front of me. ”
At Shamrock FC 316 on March 15 in St. Louis, Missouri, Dowdy (6 4 ) will turn to carry on to raise his record when he chooses on Ben Brewer (11-6) a middleweight primary event.
“(Brewer) hasn’t fought in a couple of decades, and also a large amount of individuals have asked me if I really believe ring rust, also that I don’t,” Dowdy stated. “I’m never going to bank anything such as that. He looks rough. He looks lasting. I respect the guy.
“I’m likely expect the very best version of Ben Brewer that’s beenbecause I’m bringing the very best variant of myself which ’s been. I don’t even want to expect anything besides my opponent. I presume if you don’t even give them that honor, you’re setting yourself up for failure. ”
Having stumbled earlier in his career trying to move too much too fast, Dowdy is seeking to take matters one step at a time in the years ahead in 2019.
“the target at the moment is to find 10 wins, and once I make it it will be time to move up and move on and see exactly what ’s outthere. But if any opportunity came with that grabbed my eye, I’m for the struggle.
“I’m not going to put a rigid format for this. I’m going to accomplish what I could; work my ass off, appear, win everything I can, and whenever I’ve got those opportunities they should come my own way. ”
