Talking is the point because Boetsch is not a boastful fighter who claims anything is his, or that he needs to be handed the keys to the kingdom.

“For me that gets frustrating. Just because I’m one of those guys who isn’t very vocal about calling people out and saying I deserve such and such an opponent. Michael (Bisping)‘s very good at that and he’s made a career out of it, there are talks of him getting a title shot maybe before even I do, so he’s done a good job of promoting himself and that’s one way of doing it,” said Boetsch.

“I think the better way to do it, or the way I prefer to do it, is to step in the cage and beat people up, and eventually they’re going to have to give me a title shot because I’m going to run out of people to beat up. That’s how I plan on doing it.”

He got beat up badly in a kickboxing match by freakin' Okami before a hail mary and miraculous KO, grinds out a questionable decision by backing up for three rounds to a profoundly lethargic Lombard... and he thinks he'll get a shot at Silva at some point ?!

I would never want to see that... and I like Boetsch.

He's at least 3 fights away from a shot if anything.

I want boetsch, wiedman, bisping, and vitor to fight Andy.

Oh because he didn't really win his fight in Calgary, and now he's a title contender.

I appreciate his hard working style and all if that but I don't consider him an actual contender.
I think that's why they gave him weidman at first, to build him by saying he beat a "Tough contender" in tim.

I doubt he UFC thought he would win against Lombard Phone Post

That's retarded. You want a bunch of pieces of trash, loud mouths and mental midgets like junie, chael and Nick?

These types of fighters are what's wrong with mma today. Rule breakers (Diaz, thiago silva), trash talkers (Diaz, Chael) and trash ppl with low fight skill (bang bro dude, junie)

I guess you prefer those over guys like chuck, Franklin, crocop, wand, saku etc... cuz the later guys don't have enough "personality " for you? Phone Post

3 fights away put the crack pipe down son.  Boetsch Vs weidman for title shot.  Bisping can wait with his what 7 title shot eliminator fails and then dana giving the nod to briann stann in there fight.... 

And miraclous come back was Kongo knocking out Barry / Diaz knocking out Daley not Boetsch putting hands all over okamis face with combos.


Diaz TKO'ing Daley was a miraculous comeback?


good lord the UG is extra retarded today.

He got dropped twice, it was pretty shocking to say the least.

I like this Boetsch guy ever since I saw his segment on Countdown. He's hardworking, decent, down to earth and always comes to fight. What's not to like?

Jesus Christ, there's not point arguing with you.

Daley made Diaz faceplant twice which is why the final second stoppage of Daley was so surprising.

You can back someone up for a round but if you get dropped twice and come back to TKO them then it's shocking.

What's with fighters these days thinking they're entitled to title shots? Boetch has a LOT to do before he would be considered for a title shot. He's very hard to market, and not just because, as he says, because he doesn't talk like Bisping, but rather its not like he's going out there and making big statements in the cage. Phone Post

Imma back off of my admittedly retarded comment about Boetsch's miraculous comeback vs Okami, I went and rewatched the fight and it was no miracle, that flurry of uppercuts while pushing on his face was glorious... but he was still losing big time before that.

I had it mixed up with some other fight I can't pinpoint right now.

You can back someone up for a round but if you get dropped twice and come back to TKO them then it's shocking.

and recovered instantly.

it was a crazy fight but it was NOTHING like Boetsch vs Okami, which is the original point. it was a BACK AND FORTH fight. dumbass.

 

I never compared it to Boetsch vs Okami, learn to read.
 
 
When this happens twice and you KO a guy after, it is shocking.
 
Of course it was back and forth but flooring someone twice means you're winning the round by a country mile therefore, as previously mentioned, it is shocking.
 
Would you like even further elaboration or are you willing to accept that Diaz was actually losing a round by a decent margin?

AresSmashedPrahjuhdee - oh, and he was only dropped ONCE, dumbshit. but knowing you're a dumbshit, you probably called that lazy takedown attempt at the beginning of the fight a knockdown

I couldn't find the actual punch but here's the aftermath, that's not from one of Daley's famous double leg's now is it "dumbshit"?

No, i want some fighter to actually sell a fight instead of having some bull shit gentleman talk about how they should be number 1 dip shit. These guys could learn something from Sergio Martinez or Mayweather Phone Post

He needs to win on Sat and then probably beat a Bisping or Weidman before he'd be in line for a shot.

Mayweather is a jackass. The only thing I want MMA fighters to learn from him is outstanding defensive boxing.
he may be a jackass but at least people tune in to watch his fights because he knows how to hype a fight up and actually shows up to fight instead of stalling throughout the entire fight Phone Post

WelshWarrior -  Really dislike him for some reason. Can't quite work out why.. Phone Post

Probably because he is not in the top 10 contenders but talks like he needs a title shot.


1. Bisping
2. Belfort
3. Weidman
4. Okami
5. Lombard
6. Munoz
7. Palhares
8. Belcher
9. Franklin
10 Wandy
11 Stann
12 Boetsch

lol @ putting Wandy, Palhares, Okami and Lombard before Boetsch.

I don't care who you think may win rematches that might never happen, the reality is he beat Lombard and Okami. Wandy, as much as I love him, hasn't won against a decent opponent in years and Palhares, as much as I love him too, hasn't beaten a decent opponent ever (save Jeremy Horn).
