VFD Marketing Sports Presents: UFC Fight Night 68 Preview

June 19, 2015

The UFC hits New Orleans this Saturday with UFC Fight Night 68, Boetsch versus Henderson. While this is not the deepest of cards, there are some possible sleeper fights in there.

The main event pits #14 ranked middleweight Tim Boetsch against future Hall of Famer and 44-year old Dan Henderson. Henderson doesn’t seem interested in retiring anytime soon, so expect to see some punches fly. If one of them catches, you know what that means.

In the co-main event, Ben Rothwell takes on Matt Mitrione in a heavyweight battle. We’ll see if putting two heavy strikers in the Octagon against each other provides the right recipe for fireworks.

Hometown favorite Dustin Poirier takes on Yancy Medeiros in a lightweight bout. Both fighters have the goods and this could easily turn out to be fight of the night.

VFD gives brands opportunities to take advantage of the growing popularity of MMA and the UFC. While this show may seem light on talent, it still has the ability to deliver some pop. Remember that the best fighters come out of obscurity at some point.

You can catch the main card on Fox Sport 1 at 10pm ET and the preliminary fights on Fox Sports 1 at 8pm ET. Enjoy the show!
