Tavares UD in a gritty, boring fight.

I'll be putting money on Boetsch. He's the underdog because he hasn't performed well lately but he's still too much for Tavares.

Remove all wins that were not against top 5 HW opponents and Fedor is 6-4.

Boestsch is willing to go out of his comfort zone and try to win when he's behind, I don't think Tavares has that mentality. The guy is massive and muscular, but that physique doesn't equate to a confident fighting style. He plays it very safe, very slow, and he is extremely unlikely to finish.

I don't see Tim winning a decision here, I don't think he has the tools to consistently put it to a guy like Brad. However, if someone is going to finish, it's most certainly going to be Boetsch. I favor Brad by decision, but I'm hoping Tim pulls out the KO.
