El Dirte Released by the UFC
Joe Doerksen has confirmed to Top MMA News that he has been released by the UFC. The Winnipeg fighter went 1-2 in the UFC in 2010 and has received his walking papers. El Dirte beat Tom Lawlor earlier this year, but then was submitted by CB Dollaway and, most recently, lost a split decision to Dan Miller. This was Doerksen’s third run with the UFC going 2-7 overall.
It has been busy year for Doerksen who has fought five times since April and going 3-2 for the year. The 33 year old has a 46-14 record overall.
