Leaning towards Ring but not sure about this one yet. Boetsch's gas tank is pretty suspect at this weight.

Prediction: correct Boetsch   correct Decision  

Ring is undefeated, but Boetsch has fought at HW, LHW, and now at MW, and I think that Boetsch has found a home at 185. I think Boetsch wins this one by decision.

I think that Boetsch will have an easier time with the weight cut in this fight, that's why I'm picking him by decision. The gas is a pretty big factor though kallousklown, so who knows, I might change my pick before the fight.

Prediction: correct Boetsch   correct Decision  

I think Both are good fighters with bright futures in MMA. I just believe that Tim will simply overpower Ring but the longer this fight goes i believe Ring will have the advantage but Tim will just barely edge this one out in my opinion.

I'll likely be picking Boetsch. MW is likely a great fit for him.
