Luke Rockhold vs. Tim Boetsch full fight video preview online for UFC 172

Tonight's (Sat., April 26, 2014) UFC 172: "Jones vs. Teixeira" pay-per-view (PPV) at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, will feature Luke Rockhold continuing his climb back up the ranks of the middleweight division against the always dangerous Tim Boetsch.

Rockhold:

"He hasn't fought anybody like me and he's going to realize that once we step in the cage. This fight could potentially be worse for Boetsch than it was for (Costa) Philippou. That's how I always plan it in my head. I'm prepared for a war but I plan on just destroying whoever is in front of me."

Boetsch:

"We really look at what we expect from Luke and we know he's a tall guy. He's going to have a reach advantage. That's one thing that I'm going to have to nullify. I'm going to do that by taking the clinch on him. The dirty boxing side of things is something I really enjoy. There's going to be a clinch in every fight and I feel like I'm going to win those positions every time. Luke's a very tough fighter, a former world champion. I'm really looking forward to knocking him out."
