Joe Doerksen made a successful return to the UFC less than a month ago at UFC 113 in Montreal. After nearly getting finished by Tom "Filthy" Lawlor in the first round, Doerksen came back in the second round to choke out Lawlor for his second UFC victory in his seventh attempt. Doerksen is experiencing a career resurgence with his current 7-fight winning streak. Doerksen was a late replacement at UFC 113, and had already committed to this fight with the CFC. Doerksen's next fight will be back in the Octagon, where he'll be looking to try to get the first back-to-back UFC wins of his career.
The co-main event featured two popular Canadian fighters with sloppy MMA records, in a fight that ended with controversy and fans angrily throwing drinks into the cage. Eric "Odalay" Perez dropped glam rock star/MMA fighter Robin Black with a jab in the first round, as Black was turning away from the action, and Perez kicked him on the ground. Black complained that he was illegally kicked to the head, but the referee said the kicks were legal to the body. The action was paused for the ringside doctor to check on Black. The fight was called and Black was stretchered out of the arena. CFC officials indicated Black was okay, but was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons based on a dilated pupil.
The Canadian website Top MMA News has play-by-play for this event and named undefeated Roland Delorme vs Sean Quinn as the Fight of the Night for its back and forth action. They also gave Submission of the Night to Dwight Sutherland for a triangle choke over Guillaume Fortier, and Knockout of the Night to the debuting Travis Gervais for a head kick followed by ground and pound TKO finish.
