    Default Ben Rothwell vs Overeem slated for Fight Night 50

    Ben Rothwell vs. Ruslan Magomedov targeted for late-summer event, possibly UFC 177
    http://mmajunkie.com/2014/07/ben-rot...ssibly-ufc-177
    UFC heavyweight Ben Rothwell (33-9 MMA, 3-3 UFC) is set to resume his career following a one-year suspension and will fight Ruslan Magomedov (12-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), according to a recent report.

    Russian MMA website MMAboxing.ru writes that the matchup is set for UFC 177, though a source close to the event today told MMAjunkie that a date has yet to be finalized.

    Didn't they cut Rothwell for PED use? That is pretty funny they let him back already.

    Ha no they cut the guy he beat! Makes sense right? Anyway this will be an easy win for the Reem should his chin hold up.

    If lathe Overeem that beat Mir shows up against Rothwell, I believe he takes it. Otherwise Rothwell has a chance if he doesn't just throw nothing but heat in the first round. He can some, but he has to have something for the later rounds if he doesn't catch him early.

    I will pull for Rothwell though.

    UFC Fight Night 50 takes place Sept. 5 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn. It’s a rare Friday night show for the UFC – and falls on the same night as Bellator 123 in nearby Uncasville, less than 10 miles away.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they add another big name or two...

    Overeem is better in every aspect and should take it as long as he keeps his chin covered. Rothwell's gas tank will be emptied pretty quickly after a few shots and a flurry of knees.

    He should use the same approach he used against Lesnar. set up a tko with body kicks.

    I want Reem to win just to see him beat to a pulp by a better fighter.
    I would love to see him pick up a win and have a match up with JDS.

    AO is better in every aspect except 1.
    If I'm Ben i try to touch AO's chin as quickly as possible. I have a broken lamp held together with duct tape that has more impact resistance than AO's chin.
