Exclusive: Ben Rothwell Vs. Pedro Rizzo To Happen At Affliction 2


Another heavyweight matchup has been added to Affliction 2, Tom Atencio told MMANews.com lastnight that “Big” Ben Rothwell will meet Pedro “The Rock” Rizzo at “Day of Reckoning” on October 11th in Las Vegas at the Thomas And Mack Center.

Rizzo and Rothwell both fought on the first Affliction card, losing to Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski respectively in very entertaining affairs. Barnett and Arlovski are also on the card, fighting in a WAMMA Heavyweight title elimination match with the winner facing Fedor Emelianenko likely at Affliction 3
