Boetsch Set For Next UFC Battle
Maine mixed martial arts veteran Tim Boetsch is lined up to step in the cage another time for the Ultimate Fighting Championship this June.
The UFC announced that the “Barbarian” is lined up to compete at UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City on June 25th and his opponent will be former welterweight champion Johny "Big Rig" Hendricks.
Hendricks recently won his fight versus Hector Lombard on February 19 and snapped a three fight losing streak that dated back to the winter of last year. The UFC vet won the vacant welterweight title in 2014 when he beat Robbie Lawler by unanimous decision. Hendricks has missed weight two of the past three fights.
The fight will be fought at middleweight (185 pounds) and will also feature BJ Penn’s return to the octagon as he faces Dennis Siver.
