Joseph Daniel Doerksen (born October 9 , 1977) is a Canadian mixed martial artist (MMA) from New Bothwell, Manitoba. He is a former middleweight contender of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and a veteran of the International Fight League (IFL). He specializes in Brazilian jiu-jitsu [ [http://www.sherdog.com/news/interviews.asp?n_id=1607&my_page=2 Joe Doerksen interview] ] , with the vast majority of his victories resulting from submission techniques.

In November 2006, it was reported that Doerksen had signed a contract with the PRIDE Fighting Championships, [http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles.asp?n_id=6197] but with Zuffa's purchase of the PRIDE organization in the spring of 2007, Doerksen's contract saw him enter the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) organization instead.

His first fight in the organization was against PRIDE veteran Paulo Filho for the vacant WEC middleweight championship at WEC 29 on August 5, 2007. Doerksen lost the fight via TKO in the first round.
