Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight sluggers Johny Hendricks and Tim Boetsch will collide later tonight (Sun., June 25, 2017) at the UFC Fight Night 112 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 inside Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Boetsch failed to put together consecutive wins from 2012-15, taking a beating more often than not and even attempting a return to 205 pounds. Most thought that was the end for “The Barbarian,” but Boetsch bounced back with a pair of quality victories last year to prolong his career.
Hendricks’ slide wasn’t quite as dramatic, but the former welterweight kingpin did lose a trio of fights while struggling to make weight each time out. “Big Rigg” legitimately fought well for the first time in a long while in his 185-pound debut, showing that he still has something left in the tank by turning away Hector Lombard.
Check out their fight video preview above.
