Darrell Horcher returns to UFC with a Victory

Last week, we had a chance to speak with Darrell Horcher about his return to the UFC. Tonight, he entered the octagon for the first time since being involved in a life threatening motorcycle accident last year.

Tonight, on the preliminary card for UFC Fight Night 112, Horcher defeated Devin Powell by split-decision. The match wasn’t as close at score card indicated, Horcher drew first blood and more or less dominated the match.

MMAJunkie.com: “With a desperate choke attempt on Darrell Horcher in the waning minutes, Devin Powell nearly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

But the moment Horcher popped his head out of Powell’s grasp to complete a final takedown, the matter was effectively settled. Horcher would last until the final horn, and his reward was a split-decision victory that wasn’t as close as it looked on the scorecards.

The lightweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 112 event at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. It aired on FS2 following additional prelims on UFC Fight Pass and ahead of the main card on FS1.”

Congratulations, Darrell Horcher!
