UFC Fight Night 47 Card Gets its First Two Bouts Added to Lineup in Maine

UFC-Fight-Night-LogoThe UFC scheduled the first two fights for their UFC Fight Night 47 card in Bangor, Maine, MMAWeekly.com confirmed on Wednesday evening.

An initial report from the Bangor Daily News said Tim Boetsch will face Brad Tavares in a middleweight fight, and Shawn Jordan will fight Jack May in a heavyweight affair.

Boetsch (17-7) comes into the Maine card as a local fighter looking to jump back in the win column. In his last outing, Boetsch lost to Luke Rockhold at UFC 172 via submission.

Tavares (12-2) also comes into the card off a loss, having dropped a unanimous decision in his last fight to Yoel Romero at the UFC on FOX 11 card in April.

Both Jordan (15-6) and May (7-1) hope to pick up wins after having less-than favorable results in their last contests. Jordan has dropped two in a row, while May lost his UFC debut in April.

More bouts for UFC Fight Night 47 are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
