UFC Fight Night 68 Fight Card, Viewing Schedule & Video Roundup


UFC Fight Night 68 goes down this weekend (Saturday June 6th, 2015) from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The headlining action is a middleweight collision between former Pride FC two-weight champion and MMA (mixed martial arts) legend Dan Henderson, and ‘Barbarian’ Tim Boetsch. The excessive punishment that ‘Hendo’ has been subject to lately has fans questioning his motives, and the hard-hitting Boetsch may well put the screws in a legendary career if he is able to win big.

The co-main event for the evening features surging heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Ben Rothwell, as each looks to capitalize on the lack of contenders in the top half of the heavyweight rankings. Dustin Poirier will return to lightweight as he collides with Yancy Medeiros, and Brian Ortega will take on Thiago Tavares in the featherweight division. Two bantamweight bouts showcasing Francisco Oliveira vs Alex Cacares & Joe Soto vs Anthony Birchak will kick off the main card in New Orleans.
