Brad Tavares appears to be getting the hang of this MMA thing.

Tavares recently took to Twitter to push for a match with Tim Boetsch. Tavares (12-1) is coming off a fifth consecutive victory over Lorenz Larkin.

Since a 2011 decision loss to Aaron Simpson, the Hawaiian has topped Dongi Yang, Tom Watson, Riki Fukuda and Bubba McDaniel, along with the Larkin win last month.

Boetsch, meanwhile, snapped a two-game losing streak with a decision victory over C.B. Dollaway last October. Prior to his back-to-back defeats, Boetsch (17-6) had won four in a row, including bouts with Hector Lombard and Yushin Okami.
