Though he had some fights fall through at the end of last year, 2015 was still a very busy time for lightweight prospect Grant Dawson.
Over the span of the first eight months of 2015, Dawson averaged nearly a fight a month, picking up victories in all of his bouts and remaining undefeated for his second year in MMA.
“2015 was definitely a really good year for me,” Dawson told MMAWeekly.com. “I had five fights in the entire year. That puts a lot of momentum going into my 2016. I saw a lot of things that I had to work on, and I feel like I’m getting better in every single fight, every single day.
“There were a couple of fights where I wanted to showcase some different skills, but the fights didn’t go that way, so I had to change it up. For the most part, when I train something, I step into the cage and I’m usually ready to do what I train.”
After a brief period of time off, Dawson has already picked up his first win of 2016, with a second-round TKO of Bryce Logan on Jan. 29 at Victory FC 47.
“I feel like that was my best performance to date and I showed that I’m a really well-rounded and complete fighter,” said Dawson. “Getting the TKO over a submission is nice for a change and it shows that people have to watch out for other things other than my submissions.
“I feel it put a statement out to everyone that I am a legit fighter and people need to be ready to go when they fight me.”
Dawson (8-0) will look to pick up his second win of the year when he makes his Titan FC debut on Friday in Ridgefield, Wash. against Robert Washington (19-10) in a main card ….View full article
