Tim Boetsch is looking to move up, not down, in the UFC's again-competitive middleweight division.

However, after scoring a come-from-behind TKO victory over contender and recent title challenger Yushin Okami this past month at UFC 144, Boetsch's options are limited.

But he sees one enticing possibility: Michael Bisping.

hes got a punchers chance but i think bisping will tear him up. i think the biggest mistake okami made was underestimating tim. i really like tim and i would love to see KO bisping but i just dont see him winning this fight.

I, for one, would like to see this fight happen. Tim has the power to knock Bisping out but Bisping isn't gonna fold like Okami did. He may get knocked out but up to that point he's gonna be moving around, giving him fits like he always seems to do

bisping will eat boetsch up. not that im a big fan of bisping but the guy knows how to win. he will frustrate boetsch to the point that he throws his gameplan out the window, and bisping will coast to a UD (coast my not be the right word but its late and i cant come up with a better one )

I'd love to see Bisping get bitchtossed on his head and brutally ktfo again.

Unfortunately Bisping hasn't gotten his annual tune-up fight yet, so he's due for an easy win or two next before he fights some semi-dangerous wrestler in the top 10 instead of the fights we want to see him in, mainly strikers (ala Vitor, Boetsch, Stann, Belcher, Wand again)

I dont like Bisping either but just cuz Boetsch scored the crazy upset win of his career it doesnt mean he' s a top MW who could beat a lot of the upper guys...he was still getting beat on against Okami lol Boetsch is Boetsch.

Gameplans don't go out the window with 1 jab. They go out the window when you get hurt, or in Bispings case when he lands about 4 or 5 left right combos going unanswered. Bisping isn't a world beater but if you let him build momentum your going to end up in a Dan Miller/Akiyama fight where your not gonna get KO'd but you'll end up taking shots aiming to try and time the untimable. Bispings really starting to put his game together. Not forgetting that and the fact he's moved to America.

If Boetsch wants to fight Bisping let him have it, I just hope Boetsch understands Bisping can do what N. Ring did for 1 round, but Bisping will do it for 3.

Bisping would tool Boetsch. He's not a top 10 fighter and one round where he bum rushed an off guard Okami doesn't mean he could beat him again or take out a guy that arguable beat the best wrestler in the devision.
Hate Bisping for the fact that he's a cocky tool in some interviews but the guy can fight.
