ufc fight night 68

The Octagon heads to New Orleans this Saturday night with another FOX Sports 1 event, UFC Fight Night 68.

Featuring Dan Henderson vs. Tim Boetsch, much of the action airs on FS1 from the Smoothie King Center.

The original main event was to include Daniel Cormier returning home to take on Ryan Bader, but officials placed “DC” in a light heavyweight title fight – which he won, submitting Anthony Johnson late last month.

Along with Henderson-Boetsch, the card includes Matt Mitrione vs. Ben Rothwell, Dustin Poirier vs. Yancy Medeiros, Thiago Tavares vs. Brian Ortega and Joe Soto vs. Anthony Birchak.
