Doerksen to Face Lawlor at UFC 113


Fresh off his victory at KOTC this past weekend, Joe “El Dirte” Doerksen will be heading back to the UFC.   Sources close to the situation have informed Top MMA News that Doerksen will be fighting in Montreal against Tom Lawlor.

Lawlor was originally scheduled to fight Tim Credeur at UFC 113.  Tom is 6-2 and is coming off a very close decision loss to Aaron Simpson at UFC Fight Night 20.  There is no word on why Credeur has pulled out of the fight at this time.

Doerksen, Top MMA News #3 ranked fighter, is 44-12 in his eleven year MMA career.  Doerksen is on a five fight win streak having beaten Chad Herrick in his last fight.

Doerksen remains scheduled to headline CFC 5 in June.

  7. My backup plan was to put Robin Black and Eric Perez against Rodrigo Munduruca!

    But Joe will be able to fight for us also, we wish him all the best in this fight, and can’t wait to watch it live!

    Joe has been looking to fight for a long time and unfortunately had a long layoff, and now he is back hard, and will have 3 fights by the summer this year already.

    Congrats Joe, NONE of this would be possible, if you didn’t lift weights.
