For the first and possibly only time, the UFC will strut its stuff tonight in Bangor as the biggest mixed martial arts organization takes over the Cross Center for a nine fight card that will be televised around the world.UFC President Dana White, a Hermon High School grad, will complete his dream of bringing the UFC to his home state which was made possible because of the newly constructed Cross Insurance Center and Hollywood Casino located right across the street.

The night is also a dream come true for Linconville native Tim "The Barbarian" Boetsch who will fight for the first time in his home state. The Camden-Hills High School grad is part of the co-main event that pits him against Brad Tavarez. The other main event fight has Ryan "Darth" Bader facing Ovince Saint Preux.

Below are highlights of the fighters public workout on Thursday at Hollywood Casino and their thoughts on tonight's fight.
