Are you ready, ladies? The dreamiest guy in all of MMA (so I hear) is about to return to action. On Tuesday morning, officials announced former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (pictured) will battle Tim Boetsch at UFC 172.
The April 26 event takes place inside Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
Rockhold will be making a quick turnaround from January’s knockout victory over Costas Philippou. The bout marked Rockhold’s first UFC win, as he was KO’d by Vitor Belfort in highlight reel fashion in his big league debut.
Boetsch collected a much-needed win with a split decision over C.B. Dollaway in his last outing. “The Barbarian” had dropped two straight bouts prior to October’s tango.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Bethe Correia vs. Jessamyn Duke
Joe Ellenberger vs. Yancy Medeiros
Jessamyn Duke vs. Bethe Correia
Joseph Benavidez vs. Tim Elliott
Max Holloway vs. Andre Fili
Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine
Luke Rockhold vs. Tim Boetsch
Anthony Johnson vs. Phil Davis
Glover Teixeira vs. Jon Jones (UFC light heavyweight champion)
