Both athletes are riding impressive win statistics. Doyle is coming off of a potent three fight win streak, all of those finishes inside the first two rounds.
Matthew Buirski has not yet been defeated in the Hexagon. In his last bout, a similar main card showdown with Durban’s Abdul Hassan, he fought to an incredibly close split draw decision. Buirski and Doyle are powerful competitors both driving hard to stake a claim for a bantamweight title shot. The winner of their clash will push through to the upper reaches of the division and a potential number one contender eliminator spot, the loser will fall back down the ranks.
For both their meeting on July 03 is a reckoning. It is against each other that their ability to compete at the top of the division will be revealed.
