Boetsch: I'll fight Anderson eventually


“A lot of fighters out there are,” Boetsch said. “They think of him as an invincible superhero. If you’re thinking that way about your opponent, you’ve already lost. I think that’s what happens to a lot of guys. They lose that fight before they even get in the cage with him.”

That’s not the case with Sonnen. He was less than two minutes from a likely decision over Silva in August 2010 before succumbing to a triangle-armbar submission. If he employs a similar game plan in the rematch, Sonnen might be able to pull off the upset. Boetsch won’t be rooting for him, though.

“I want Anderson to hold onto that belt until I get there,” Boetsch said. “He is obviously a legend in the sport already. That being said, everybody has to lose eventually and I want to be the guy to take that belt from him. That’s been a dream of mine for a long time.”

Tim Hague will wait in line at a club before Tim Boetsch gets to the front of the line to meet Anderson Silva in a fight.

Boetsch has a lot of power and good wrestling... Anderson isn't going to lose to anyone but that kind of a fighter. I wouldn't say I like Tim's chances or anything, but give him a break. He's working his way there.
