Coming of his win over Brad Tavares At UFC Fight Night 47, Tim Boetsch spoke about the fight and what’s next for him:
“There was a sense of urgency, but I knew all I had to do was (hit him) with my right hand, and the game would change drastically.”
“He was working his position and working great technique, but this is fighting, it can change fast. I got back to my roots, and honestly, you see the results. I might be a little bit battered and bloody, but I got my hand raised at the end, and that’s what matters in this game.”

“That’s just something that’s in there. I’m glad it came out when it did, and I finished him off. You can’t focus on (the bout being in your hometown). I have the task at hand, and I knew that once I got rolling, I was going to run him over.”
