Boetsch-Henderson New NOLA Main Event

 

The UFC Fight Night card in New Orleans on June 6 has a new main event, as the middleweight bout between veteran star Dan Henderson and Tim "The Barbarian" Boetsch has been elevated to the headlining spot at the Smoothie King Center.

The move comes on the heels of the removal of original headliner Daniel Cormier to fight Anthony Johnson for the vacant light heavyweight title at UFC 187 on May 23. UFC officials will explore options for Cormier's foe, Ryan Bader, on a future card.
