A few months ago, not too many people were talking about Ben Rothwell’s title shot prospects, but that’s started to change.
Yes, thanks to a three fight winning streak, Rothwell’s been tapped to fight Stipe Miocic at UFC Fight 76 on October 24th. Since Miocic is ranked #3, a win at the Dublin event would put Rothwell right in the thick of the title shot mix.
In advance of the fight, the UFC has posted Rothwell’s last win, which was an impressive submission victory over Matt Mitrione. You can watch it below.
UFC FN 76 will be headlined by a lightweight fight between Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier.
