KOTC Results – Doerksen Wins Close Bout

By:

In Cobo Arena in Detroit, KOTC held a live HD Net card.  Joe Doerksen and Chad Herrick were promoted to the main event after the previously scheduled Jake Rosholt/Jeremy Horn fight was pulled due to a Rosholt injury.  In the main event, Herrick rose to the occasion of a national TV audience and took the veteran Doerksen to the brink.  Doerksen eventually took the fight by a Split Decision

It was a very close first round where Herrick was quicker on his feet while Doerksen appeared sluggish while standing.  Later in the round, Doerksen was able to take Herrick down and try to submit him especially after taking Herrick’s back.  In the second, a bloodied Doerksen had the momentum until the end of the round when Herrick dropped Doerksen with a left and stole the round.   The third was all Doerksen as El Dirte took his opponent down continuously.  Doerksen had his opponent’s back several times but could not finish him.

Here are the results:

Brandon Hunt defeats Brad Burrick by KO (Punch) in Round 2 0:59
Waylon Lowe defeats Steve Berger KO (Punches) in Round 1 2:18
Ben Lagman defeats Angelo Popofski TKO (Punches) in Round 1 2:58
Daron Cruickshank defeats Jason Holmes by Split Decision
Dom O’Grady submits David Shepherd by Armbar in Round 2, 4:18
Joe Doerksen defeats Chad Herrick by Split Decision
