The UFC has booked three more bouts for its June 6th event in New Orleans, including a middleweight fight between the legendary Dan Henderson and Tim Boetsch.

The 44 year-old Henderson (30-13) is looking to get back on track, after being finished by Daniel Cormier and Gegard Mousasi in back-to-back bouts. Boetsch (18-8), meanwhile, is coming off a choke-out defeat to Thales Leites, after he stopped Brad Tavares last August.

The UFC has also announced that Ben Rothwell (34-9) will fight fellow, heavyweight contender Matt Mitrione at the upcoming event. Rothwell took out Alistair Overeem in his last outing, and Mitrione stopped Gabriel Gonzaga.

In addition, the promotion has confirmed that Joe Proctor (10-3) will face lightweight Justin Edwards (8-4) on June 6th.

UFC FN 68 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight fight between Daniel Cormier and Ryan Bader, and will be hosted by the Smoothie King Center.
