Just ask Tim Boetsch, he’ll tell ya.

I picked Luke Rockhold to come into UFC 172 and beat Tim Boetsch, I just suspected Boetsch would turn it into one of his usual dogfights that would end up being a tough night for everyone. I was dead wrong, I admit it. From the outset, Rockhold had Boetsch tied up and in trouble with his superior grappling. Luke almost pulled off the ultra-rare inverted triangle, but Boetsh was only...
