Hector Lombard vs. Joe Doerksen at CFC 16 on March 25th in Sydney, Australia

Bellator middleweight champion, Hector Lombard will face UFC veteran, Joe Doerksen in the main event on the Australian MMA promotion, Cage Fighting Championship’s next event on March 25th in Sydney, Australia. The event takes place at Luna Park’s Big Top Stadium.

Lombard (26-2-1) became the first ever Bellator middleweight champion when he stopped Jared Hess in the fourth round at Bellator 12. He knocked out Jay Silva within six seconds of the first at Bellator 18 and is riding one of the longest unbeaten runs in mixed martial arts history, not losing a fight since dropping a unanimous decision to Gegard Mousasi at PRIDE Bushido 13 in 2006. The champ boasts a sixteen fight winning streak heading into this one including a hard fought victory over Bellator season two winner, Alexander Shlemenko via unanimous decision in October.

Doerksen was recently released by the UFC after losses to C.B. Dollaway and Dan Miller, however he does hold impressive wins over some of the top talent the UFC has to offer in Chris Leben, Riki Fukuda and Ed Herman.
