Ben Rothwell Doesn't Think Cain Velasquez Is Near Arlovskis Level


Ben Rothwell does a little MMA math at prior to his UFC 104 bout with Cain Velasquez:

” … I don’t put Cain at Andrei’s level. With Andrei, I tried to say it wasn’t that big a fight and there wasn’t pressure, but my body knew how big it was. It was kind of like when GSP fought Matt Hughes and he gave him too much respect. That’s what happened with me and Andrei. I gave him too much respect. But I don’t put Cain on his level at all. I don’t feel any more pressure than when I fought on an Adrenaline show. It’s like, he’s good? Fine, I’m good too. I feel a lot better about how I’ll perform.”
