Ben Rothwell Vs. Mark Hunt In The Works For UFC 135

0

A heavyweight contest is in the works for September 24th's UFC 135 according to a report from MMAWeekly.com.

Ben Rothwell will return to action to take on Australia Mark Hunt after not fighting in over a year. His last outing was a decision victory over Gilbert Yvel that left Rothwell, and his boss Dana White, less than impressed.

The fight hasn't been made official but is on the table and both fighters are expected to sign bout agreements that will add them to the Denver, CO card.

Other fights expected to be on the card include a light heavyweight title defense as Jon Jones will take on Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, while welterweights Matt Hughes and Diego Sanchez also highlight the card.
