Channeling his historic UFC 144 win over Yushin Okami, skidding middleweight Tim Boetsch saved his job with a comeback finish of Brad Tavares on the main card of last night’s (Sat., August 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 47 from the Cross Insurance Center Bangor, Maine.
Boetsch had dropped three out of his previous four fights, and many argued that it could have been five out of five were it not for two highly controversial decision wins over CB Dollaway and Hector Lombard.
He was also well on his way to losing to Tavares in his home state of Maine last night, but that doesn’t matter anymore. Boetsch came back with a thunderous combo to drop a stunned Tavares. Check out the video highlights of his hometown win courtesy of UFC on FOX below:
