Fight Night 68 Highlights/Results: Hendo Starches Boetsch, Rothwell Submits Mitrione, Everyone Finishes Everyone, Basically
(via UFC on FOX)
You see that, right there? That’s why you never, EVER come at Dan Henderson with your hands down and your chin sticking straight up in the air. Given the H-Bomb’s now legendary status in our fine sport, you’d think that 27-fight veteran Tim Boetsch would have understood that simple fact prior to his first ever main event slot against Hendo at Fight Night 68 last weekend. And maybe he did, or maybe Boetsch was *so* confident in his chin that he figured there’d be no way an aging one-trick pony like Henderson would even be able to catch him. In either case, he was wrong and paid dearly for it.
There’s really not much to take away from the main event of Fight Night NOLA, other than that Hendo’s emphatic win will likely set him up to be slaughtered by a much younger, quicker middleweight in his next fight –which, hooray for that. But the small nugget of wisdom we were able to mine from Boetsch vs. Hendo was a lesson as old as…well, Dan Henderson: He knocked out Fedor. Fedor.
But Hendo vs. Boetsch wasn’t the only highlight worthy moment from Fight Night NOLA. With a record-tying 7 first round finishes (and 10 finishes overall) and a Sweet Chin Music knockout to name a couple memorable moments, last Saturday’s card will surely go down as one of the best — if not *the* best — of the year. So join us after the jump for a full breakdown of the event, with highlights courtesy of UFC on FOX.Read More DIGG THIS
