In another replacement due to injury, MMAWeekly is reporting that Ohio native and BoDogFIGHT veteran Mike Patt will step up to fight Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch after James Lee was force to withdraw due to injury.
Patt’s record is an impressive 11-2. He most recently defeated Adam Rodman at Fight Time Production’s November 2007 event via guillotine choke.
The submission specialist Patt will be given a rude welcome to the UFC when he takes on “The Barbarian”. Boetsch started his UFC career off with an impressive win over David Heath but went on to lose against Matt “The Hammer” Hamill in April.
UFC 88 takes place in Atlanta, Ga. and will be held at the Phillips Arena. The night’s main event will feature Rashad Evans taking on Chuck Liddell.
