Boetsch (13-4, 4-3 UFC) has posted five wins in six outings. He made his middleweight debut at UFC 130 in May, when he defeated “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 3 winner Kendall Grove by unanimous decision at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The 30-year-old Lincolnville, Maine, native now trains under Matt Hume at the AMC Pankration camp. Boetsch, who wrestled collegiately at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, has secured 11 of his 13 career wins by knockout, technical knockout or submission. In nearly five years as a professional, he has never suffered consecutive losses.
Spawned by Season 11 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” the unbeaten Ring (12-0, 2-0 UFC) last fought at UFC 131 in June, when he submitted Octagon newcomer James Head with a third-round rear-naked choke at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt with professional boxing and kickboxing experience, he has delivered half (six) of his 12 career wins by submission. Though knee injuries have plagued the 32-year-old throughout his career, Ring (Pictured; file photo) has spent time inside the Deep and Bellator Fighting Championships promotions.
A five-round light heavyweight title bout between reigning champion Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will headline UFC 135.
