UFC Tim Boetsch

A middleweight bout between Tim Boetsch (pictured) and Thales Leites has been added to UFC 183.

UFC officials confirmed the scrap Tuesday.

The January 31 event takes place at a yet-to-be determined venue in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Boetsch collected a much needed win by beating Brad Tavares in his last outing. “The Barbarian” had lost three of his last four prior to August’s bout.

Leites, meanwhile, will be riding a seven-fight win streak into the tango. The submission specialist most recently knocked out Francis Carmont.

The 185-pound affair will likely appear on the main card.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Ildemar Alcantara vs. Richardson Moreira

Andy Enz vs. Thiago Santos

Thales Leites vs. Tim Boetsch

Thiago Alves vs. Jordan Mein

Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva
