Dan Henderson is still fighting, and because Daniel Cormier/Ryan Bader had to be uprooted, he’s in a main event versus Tim Boetsch. The co-main features heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Ben Rothwell in a bout with immediate top 10 implications. Dustin Poirier’s next fight in his return to lightweight will be against Yancy Medeiros in what should be the frontrunner for FOTN.
