Tim Boetsch: Hendo is a legend, a hero of mine, but he has a lot of tendencies

by Adam Crist/Eric Kowal

This weekend in New Orleans, “the Barbarian” Tim Boetsch (18-8) headlines the UFC Fight Night event against an opponent in which he called a “legend” and a “hero” in Dan Henderson (30-13).

Boetsch said that although Hendo has been fighting before he himself even dreamed it was possible, he still has a lot of tendencies to include recognizing when the H-Bomb (the massive overhand right that Henderson throws) is coming.

The Barbarian said that he had to change up conditioning for this fight as it is a headlining five round bout versus a three round affair.

He tells MyMMANews.com reporter Adam Crist how his old college roommate Mike Ciesnolevicz got him started in mixed martial arts and that he is grateful for the opportunity to be fighting Hendo in the main event after the Jon Jones fallout which forced the Daniel Cormier vs Ryan Bader headliner off the card.

Boetsch also touched on the UFC-Reebok deal which several fighters have discredited.  Boetsch said he is happy with the deal and excited to it all play out.

UFC Fight Night takes place at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana this Saturday, June 6. Heavyweights Ben Rothwell and Matt Mitrione co-headline the 12-bout fight card.
