Good fight I like Boetsch in this one. Should be a tough fight for both guys.

I would have liked to see both guys get easier fights next. Oh well hopefully no one gets cut after this fight.

I talked to Luke at the UFC expo
He said it was looking good that he was gonna be on this card. Can't wait to buy my ticket next week

Second to Anderson Silva, Rockhold's the best fighter in the MW division coming off a loss. Props to Boetsch for taking another tough fight, but I don't see how he pulls this one out. Rockhold by anything. I hope Boetsch doesn't get cut if it's 3 straight losses.

Boetsch definitely is in hardy/homminck area.

4 wins straight maybe a potential 3rd loss in a row.
Crazy cause if he is on the card
He will tie the record of 6 live appearances.
I may be his kryptonite.
His record isn't good with me in the crowd

Good fight. I think Rockhold wins relatively easy. This is a 3 rounder. Rockhold wins a dominant Decision, if not he could get the finish.

Doubt Boetsch gets cut with a loss. You gotta keep in mind the level of competition he's fighting.

I'm from northern Maine so I'd really like to see Boetsch take this one, but realistically I think Rockhold will walk away with a decision. Hopefully I'm wrong, though.
