"This is a really good fight for me. He [Ed Herman] is obviously not an easy opponent, but style wise, we match up really well. This is a really good opportunity for me to get some of that notoriety and to get my name out there. I think he's going to get hurt. If things go my way, he's not going to make it out of the second round."
Middleweight Joe Doerksen -- who replaced an injured David Terrell -- talks about his return to the Octagon against Ed Herman at UFC 78: "Validation" on Saturday, November 17, at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. In 2004, Doerksen choked "Short Fuse" unconscious with a triangle at SportFight 7: "Fright Night."
