Maine Fighters Star On UFC Card [VIDEO]
Two Maine fighters will be stepping in the octagon again for the Ultimate Fighting Championship at UFC Fight Night 112.
Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch will be part of the co-main event for the promotion’s fight card on Sunday night in OKC, while Devin Powell of South Berwick will have his second fight for the UFC in the undercard.
Boetsch will fight for the 22nd time in the UFC and faces octagon veteran Johny Hendricks in a middleweight bout. He is coming off a 1st round submission loss to Ronaldo Souza at UFC 208 and sports a 20-11 record. Hendricks is 18-6 and snapped a three fight losing streak last time out against Hector Lombard in February. He also is a former UFC welterweight champion.
Powell will make his second fight for the UFC and will face 12-2 Darrell Horcher. He made his debut for the promotion in January, losing to Drakkar Klose in a unanimous decision. Powell is 8-2 in his career and was the former NEF lightweight champion in Maine last summer before vacating the title to sign with the UFC. Horcher last fought in April of 2016 when he fell to lightweight top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov in the second round.
The card is headlined by a fight between Mike Chiesa and Kevin Lee who came to blows after an altercation at a press conference last month. The card is set to begin at 9 p.m. and can be viewed on Fox Sports 1.
