UFC Fight Night 47: Tim Boetsch vs. Brad Tavares booked for Aug. 16 in Bangor, Maine

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

The event is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 and Fight Pass.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has booked a middleweight showdown pitting hometown boy Tim Boetsch against Brad Tavares for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 47 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Aug. 16, 2014, inside the 6,000 capacity Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.

Verbal agreements are in place, according to Bangor Daily News.

Boetsch (17-7) could be facing the unemployment line in defeat. "The Barbarian" is just 1-4 since the summer of 2012 and his lone "win" was a very questionable decision over C.B. Dollaway last October in Brazil. In addition, the AMC Pankration product been finished in two of those four losses.

Do or die!

Tavares (12-2) is not saddled with the same sense of urgency; however, the Hawaiian is likely in no big hurry to go 0-2. After racking up five straight wins, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) vet was upended in a tough decision loss to Yoel Romero last April on FOX.

Who ya' got?

UFC Fight Night 47 will also feature a heavyweight showdown between Shawn Jordan and Jack May, according to this report, but has yet to establish a headlining act. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more information on this "Vacationland" fight card as it becomes available.
