Ben Rothwell

The UFC’s first card ever in Croatia has received a pivotal and compelling heavyweight bout, as the promotion has announced that Ben Rothwell will throw down with Junior dos Santos. Interested?

The bout will headline the upcoming, April 10th card, which will be hosted by the Zagreb Arena.

Rothwell (36-9) recently dropped jaws throughout MMA by submitting Josh Barnett at UFC on FOX 18. The win was Rothwell’s fourth straight.

Dos Santos (17-4), however, was taken out by Alistair Overeem in his last bout, which took place in December. The former champ is now 2-3 in his last 5 scraps.

So, that’s a huge fight for both guys. If Rothwell wins, he could very well line up a title shot. For “Cigano”, he needs a win to┬áreclaim a top five ranking spot.
