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 reclaim a top five ranking spot.
