The former welterweight champ is scheduled to fight Tim Boetsch tomorrow night at UFC Fight Night 112. The early weigh-ins were held today in Oklahoma City, and Hendricks came in at 188 pounds. Boetsch, meanwhile, was 186.

Bellator NYC: Chael Sonnen Grinds Past Wanderlei Silva, Matt Mitrione KOs Fedor Emelianenko
Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva finally met in the cage tonight at Bellator NYC, and as many expected would be the case, the latter had no answers for the wrestling of “The American Gangster”.
Although Silva dropped Sonnen at one point with a right hook, Sonnen dominated the fight with his wrestling and won a clear cut, decision.
In the co-headliner, Matt Mitrione knocked out Fedor Emelianenko in the opening round. Both heavyweights were sent to the deck, after landing simultaneous shots, but Mitrione recovered first and finished the legend with punches from above.
Michael Chandler is no longer Bellator’s lightweight champ. The explosive fighter injured his ankle early on into his bout with Brent Primus, and although Chandler wanted to fight on, the physicians would not let him continue.
Here are the results for Bellator 180 / NYC, which took place at Madison Square Garden.
