Derrick talks about his wins and losses in 2006, and the Bodog Fight show experience.

By BloodyKnux

If there was a fight career that more resembled a roller coaster ride in 2006 than Derrick Noble’s, I can’t find it. On a four fight win streak Derrick defeated the very tough Yves Edwards protégé Carlo Prater (Thugjitsu 19-4-1) and earned himself a shot at the MFC title belt. Then Derrick made his debute at the UFC with a rematch against Thiago Alves. Noble had defeated a green Alves by choke in 2003. The rematch went very differently and Noble lost for the first time in over a year by knockout in the first round. Then he headed back to the MFC, where he faced the seemingly unstoppable Eddie Alvarez, for another tough loss also by KO. A lot of fighters would have hung it up, having made it to the big show, and a shot at a belt only to be twice disappointed.

Undeterred Noble bounced back. Derrick strung together three solid wins, and made his way onto the second season of the Bodog Fight TV show. Now he’s faced KOTC and IFL vet Jake Ellenberger(14-1) in St Petersburg, Russia for the March 13th episode of Bodog’s second season. The winner moves on to the Pay-per-View April 14th with the likes of Fedor Emilianenko and Matt Lindland. How did 2006 end for Derrick Noble? We’ll find out Tuesday as the 4th episode of Bodog Fight appears on ION at 11pm EST.
