UFC 149: 5 Fights for Tim Boetsch to Take Next
Tim Boetsch - Esther Lin/MMAFighting

Tim Boetsch continued to shake up the middleweight division on Saturday night with a shocking split decision win over Hector Lombard.

The victory snapped a 20-fight win streak for Lombard, who was hyped by many as the next legitimate threat to Anderson Silva.

Since dropping to the middleweight division, Boetsch has taken out the likes of Yushin Okami, Kendall Grove and Nick Ring.

With the win over Lombard, "The Barbarian" joins Chris Weidman and Alan Belcher on the list of potential contenders for Silva.

It can be argued that Boetsch has defeated the stiffest opposition of the trio.

Okami is a former UFC title contender, and Lombard was the reigning Bellator middleweight champ before joining the UFC.

Could Boetsch be next in line for a title shot?

Here are five fights for him to take next.
