Tim Boetsch (pictured) was looking to avoid losing four of his last five scraps, including two straight, while Brad Tavares was hoping to dodge the first two-fight losing streak of his career. So, who needed the win more on Saturday?
Boetsch probably did, as his job was likely on the line, and he got the W with a dramatic TKO in the second stanza.
“The Barbarian” tagged Tavares with a left hook that dropped the Hawaiian. A right hook ultimately sealed the deal.
Boetsch also scored an extra $50,000 with a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
UFC Fight Night 47 took place Saturday inside Cross Insurance Center in Maine.
