Tim Boetsh Wants Dan Henderson Next, But Is Willing To Face Anyone In The Top Five Middleweight Division

Earning what has to be one of the greatest come backs in mixed martial arts history, UFC middleweight fighter Tim ‘The Barbarian’ Boetsch (15-4) is coming off a third round TKO win over Yushin Okami during last weekends UFC 144 event in Japan.
After being manhandled for two rounds by Okami, Boetsch came out firing after the bell, landing a head kick which spelled the beginning of the end for ‘Thunder’.
Now ‘The Barbarian’ has his eyes set on former Strikeforce champ, and current UFC light heavyweight contender, Dan Henderson. Well him or anyone in the top five of the UFC’s 185-lbs division.
Boetsch, who was a guest on Wednesday’s podcast of “The MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo“, explains why he called out Henderson and who he wants instead if he can’t face the ‘H-Bomb’.
“I’ve been a huge Dan Henderson fan. He’s obviously a legend in the sport and people are wondering what the heck he’s doing next in the UFC. I just thought it’d be an interesting matchup, but I’m open to taking on any of the top five middleweights and climbing up the ladder. Whether it be a Michael Bisping or a Mark Munoz, I just want to fight the best guys in the world and continue to beat them up.”
