UFC 78: Joe Doerksen To Face Herman

The UFC has announced that veteran Joe Doerksen will take the place of an injured David Terrell for a main card bout against Ed Herman at UFC 78 later this month:

Veteran middleweight contender Joe Doerksen has decided to step up to face the Ultimate Fighter 3 finalist on November 17th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Doerksen (39-10), a native of New Bothwell, Manitoba, Canada, will be returning to the UFC for the first time since his March 2006 bout against Nate Marquardt at UFC 58. Since his last Octagon appearance, the 30-year old has won seven of eight bouts (all wins coming via submission or TKO), with his only defeat coming at the hands of current WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho. In ‘Short Fuse’ Herman (15-4), Doerksen will be facing a hard-charging up and comer who is currently riding a two fight UFC winning streak.
