Rothwell being overlooked to f**k!

Ive never really thought of Rothwell as talented. He seems to do most stuff well enough but doesn't really excel at anything.

That aside, he rackd up a 3 fight win streak over 2 ranked guys, IF he beats Barnett that makes 4-0 with 3 ranked opponents.

Seems he's getting no love though.

Article asks and answers how Rothwell gets the shot.

Can I get a blue name please

Yeah I thought he'd joined Lloyd Irvins team for a moment Phone Post 3.0

I think Stipe got lucky not having to fight Rothwell Phone Post 3.0

rothwell deserves the shot, he beat overeem and miocic hasnt won more then 3 fights in a row in the UFC (equivilent to rothwells current streak) with his biggest wins being hunto and arlovski, whih i dont see as much better then rothwell having great wins over mitrione and overeem.

Thanks man

Gotta agree that with awin iverBarnett he's certainly more deserving if you base it on just the fights. UFC have a habit of not doing that though. Probably easier sell making Overeem vs Werdum/Velasquez. Rebook Rothwell vs Stipe for next possibly.

Big Ben is the most deserving though with a win over Barnett, for sure

The guy fights like 1 every year....he is injury prone....meh

Minimally injured to be fair. He was banned for 9 months though which made him inactive more than he should have been

I've always liked Ben, he used to be cool to me on Myspace back in the day. Over the years he's gotten more lethal. He gets KO's in all his fights. He fucked up Mitrione pretty good on top of the Reem win. He's been a tough fight for anyone for years. Why not give him a shot?
I think he'll beat the booty shorts off Barnett's PED-using ass. At that point they need to let Ben fight for the prize. If he loses, he loses, but at least give him the chance he deserves.

The problem is the UFC doesn't know how to make fights interesting by talking up any potential contenders. They need to develop the personal narratives of the current contenders and get the fans excited so that future fights are anticipated. For the mainstream, they don't know Ben or his story and history in the octagon.

If the UFC chose to market these guys better they'd sell more PPV's and garner more interest ahead of the events. They're developing some of the wrong 'stars' for future events. Van Zant is a good example, too much too soon. They got smoking hot Miesha Tate but not enough is being done to promote her and develop her story ahead of time. She deserved the title shot and luckily got it, but I worry that if Ben wins they'll keep him on the shelf somewhere or keep him as a gatekeeper. Hell, they gave Mark Hunt a shot and that turned into an interesting story.

Ben can beat just about anyone on a good night because he's so fucking tough and he hits really hard.

If Barnett fights cocky or sloppy, Ben will catch him. Phone Post 3.0

Definitely winnable for him.

I'm hoping he wins just because I'm intruiged as to which way the UFC will go.

Still questions surrounding Reems contract. If that doesn't get sorted then, for me, Rothwell is far more deserving than Miocic. His win streak will be twice as long as well as 3 ranked guys.

Love me some Rothing, but I think Barnett is gonna dominate him. I've got a little $10 parlay between Josh and Alcantara to win $32. Nothing crazy but I can see it happening. Phone Post 3.0
