When I first I saw this, I was thinking Boetsch could take it. But, now that I think about it a little more, I'm starting to side with Ring. He's finally injury free, and he won't be coming off a long layoff this time around.

I think it's kinda a toss up here, but I'm going with "The Promise" Ring.

Boetsch is a beast at 185, swing his way by tko/ko, but ill mule it over and change a few more times I'm sure. These are the type of fights that are the biggest toss ups

Boetsch will just be too strong and should take this.

I like Ring and his wrestling...Boetsch is however one of those guys you dont know which one shows up...I think Ring will just be the more prepared and he almost killed Head...Personally I thoguht Ring just punished Head when he could have finished it...I think he decided to inflict damage...Lookin forward to seeing a line on this fight on betting sites..

I feel scared for anyone other than the top end of the division against boetsch because the guy really is a barbarian. His nickname is perfect. He was able to toss people around like ragdolls at 205, the guy is going to be so strong compared to most of the division. I don't think he'll be beating guys in the top 10, but anyone who isn't really good is going to have a hard time dealing with this guy's strength.

I think Fukuda beat Ring by today's judging standards, because Ring did not land enough leg kicks to make up for being taken down in every round. Tim will finish off where Fakuda left off, but he will move up the rankings slowly, unless he has a great finish.
