Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch, Renan Barao vs. Jeff Hougland Added To UFC 148

Tim Boetsch’s dramatic come-from-behind TKO victory over Yushin Okami at UFC 144 has earned him a shot at another one of the UFC’s top middleweights.

The UFC announced today that Boetsch will take on none other than Michael Bisping at UFC 148 in a middleweight fight that could have “major title implications.”

In another middleweight matchup, top ten middleweights Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch and Michael “The Count” Bisping will square off in a battle that could have major implications for the 185 title picture.

Many Bisping haters have longed to see him get knocked out again ever since Dan Henderson dropped him like a sack of potatoes at UFC 100. Tim Boetsch certainly has the power to do that, but it definitely won’t come easy if it comes at all.

The UFC also announced today that Renan Barao will take on Jeff Hougland in a bantamweight bout on the card. Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le was announced last night.
