tim is not an elite martial artist. he is a beast though, tough as hell, hits hard, huge heart, and has been successful against some of the best... phil is not the guy to stop his run, tim will get a big step up in competition after this fight.

Tim has been getting some serious luck lately, and it's likely going to carry him through this fight too. Boetsch wins a decision.

Boetsch is trash. He might survive, but he's getting his ass kicked in this fight.

Boetsch is a good fighter but he's on a run of extraordinary circumstance. I thought he beat Lombard, but it was clear that Lightning wasn't himself on that night at all, whether he was injured, had nerves, or whatever. If the Hector that showed up against Palhares showed up against Boetsch, Boetsch would have been on the losing end.

That being said, I think Boetsch can beat Costa. He's got a good chin, underrated grappling, and really solid power in his hands.

Tim should have taken some notes from the last two fights and just ride out a win here. Hopefully they put on a barn burner though.

Boetsch via 3 rounds of draining Philippou against the cage and generally wearing him down.
