UFC News: Tim Boetech faces Chris Weidman at UFC 155
The next contender for the UFC Middleweight championship may be decided on Dec. 29 as Tim Boetsch faces Chris Weidman at UFC 155.
With the current champion Anderson Silva out to 2013 and linked with a possible super fight with UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, the UFC middleweight division hasn’t named anyone who would be in line for a shot at Silva.
Of the middleweights currently on the roster, both Weidman and Boetsch can claim they deserve a shot at the belt.
Weidman, who is currently 9-0, is coming off a huge win over Mark Munoz back in July. Prior to knocking out “The Filipino Wrecking Machine,” he defeated former title contender Demian Maia at UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis on Jan. 28.
Boetsch has become a force in the middleweight divison since he dropped to 185 pounds back in 2011. He’s racked up four wins, including a decision victory over Kendal Grove and a TKO victory over former title contender Yushin Okami back at UFC 144.
However the biggest victory of his career so far would have to be his recent split-decision win over former Bellator Middleweight champion Hector Lombard at UFC 149.
With both fighters being Division-I wrestlers, this has the makings of a classic scrap on the canvas.
How do you think Weidman vs. Boestch will go down? Should someone else be considered for a UFC Middleweight title shot. Answer by commenting in the box below or send a tweet to @alstover with the hashtag #RantMMA
