Interesting fight.

Costa has looked exceptional as of late but against lower competition.

Boetsch has looked mediocre but against top competition, yet he's managed to pull wins out of his ass.

I guess I'll pick Boetsch just because I know he can beat top guys, I don't know if Costa can yet but a Costa victory wouldn't shock me.

These guys are pretty even. I'll probably place some pennies on Costa cos he'll be the underdog.

Costa is the better technical striker but Boetsch is a far better grappler and has shown he can take a punch and give some hell of his own. I think Tim continues his Cinderella story.

I'm hoping for a Costa TKO2 but I feel like this will be another Boetsch/Ring where Tim wins an uneventful decision.

Uneventful?!



The barbarian bitch toss is many things...uneventful isn't one of them.

Tim takes it to the ground and beats Costa up.

Woudln't mind if Costa won though, both guys are good imo.

I would like to think stuffing Riki Fukuda's best takedowns & training with Chris Weidman will make Costa immune to wrestler man huggy cooties.
