Ryan Bader pulled from UFC Fight Night 68, moving Tim Boetsch vs. Dan Henderson into FOX Sports 1 main event


Later, Bader.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was unable to find Ryan Bader a new opponent for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 68 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, locked and loaded for the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 6, 2015.

As a result, "Darth" has been removed from the card altogether.

Taking over as the new main event, now that Daniel Cormier has been promoted to UFC 187 headliner opposite Anthony Johnson, is the middleweight showdown featuring one of the greatest fighters to ever compete at 185 pounds, after a storied career at light heavyweight.

His opponent is Dan Henderson.

Tim Boetsch gets top billing for the 'Nawlins fight card, but he's not the only heavy hitter to hit the FOX Sports 1 airwaves. The recent fight card shake up has moved the heavyweight hoedown between Ben Rothwell and Matt Mitrione into the co-main event.

Should be a fun night of fights.
