There is less than a week before CFC 5 and fans are excited to see one of Canada’s top promotions live on June 4th. With no MMA in Manitoba the past few months, fans are anxiously awaiting the chance to see the best fighters that Manitoba has to offer including Joe Doerksen.
Joe Doerksen is coming off his victory of Tom Lawlor at UFC 113. Doerksen submitted Lawlor in the second round and was the only Canadian out of seven to win in UFC Montreal this year. Incredibly, the UFC has allowed Doerksen to honor is agreement to fight on CFC 5 and fans will be the ones to benefit. Doerksen will be taking on Shawn Marchand in the main event. Marchand is an up and coming Canadian fighter who already is the Middleweight champion from a maritime promotion. Doerksen should not overlook this Ontario fighter as Marchand has not lost since 2007 and is looking at this fight as his opportunity to knock off a UFC veteran. Read the rest of this entry »
After five consecutive wins in organizations such as Sengoku and the Canadian Fighting Championship, Winnipeg’s Joe Doerksen was signed by the UFC to fight at UFC 113 in Montreal. This was to be Doerksen’s second fight in less than a month. The result? El Dirte submitted Tom Lawlor in the second round of a very exciting fight that made the UFC 113 Pay Per View broadcast. In fact, Doerksen was the only Canadian out of seven to win at UFC 113!
With his sixth consecutive victory under his belt, his UFC win bonus in his bank account, and a freshly minted UFC contract, there is no way that Joe Doerksen will still headline CFC 5 on June 4th. Right?
Many are assuming that Doerksen has pulled out of the CFC 5 event. Let the Canadian Fighting Championship set the record straight – Joe Doerksen WILL be headlining CFC 5 against Shawn Marchand on June 4th.
As Joe Doerksen told Top MMA News Radio recently when asked if he was still fighting on CFC 5:
“Absolutely! The top three experiences as a fighter have been fighting in the UFC, fighting in Japan, and fighting in Winnipeg. Winnipeg’s my hometown…it’s my friends and family…I don’t know how to explain it…there’s no feeling like it and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
CFC fans should be honored that a warrior of Joe Doerksen’s calibre will be gracing the Steel Circle in Winnipeg. It is a very rare opportunity to see a fighter on the current UFC roster fight outside the UFC. Fans will have that chance on June 4th.
Why would Joe Doerksen take this local fight when he is also fighting for the biggest MMA promotion in the world?
Doerksen replies, “For me fighting in the CFC is different, but is just as big a deal for me as fighting in the UFC.”
