UFC Heavyweight Ben Rothwell isn’t holding anything back when speaking with the media now that he realizes how much of a factor it plays in the sport of mixed martial arts.

Following Ronda Rousey’s much talked about loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, Rothwell commented not just on Rousey on Sirius XM’s “Fight Club” podcast, but also her boyfriend Travis Browne where he ripped into his fellow UFC heavyweight.

“I have no problems talking (expletive) on him because he brings (expletive) on himself,” Rothwell said (transcribed by MMA Junkie). “He’s one of the guys – I try to be nice to him and cool, and the more I learn about him, the more of his history, he’s one of those guys that’s just a man-whore. He’s a phony, and a lot of (expletive) pisses me off with him. Why did you suddenly leave a great camp that made him good and move to a (expletive) gym that’s got a lot of guys losing? For me, I think it was a financial thing. He went there and found a sugar mama in his girlfriend. He’s just looking to get himself taken care of.

“He’s got some brains in, like, ‘Why should I fight? I’ll just get her to pay for everything.’ It’s a good financial move on his part, but it hasn’t done his personal career any good and a lot of people think the guy has regressed and he’s not getting any better. He’s lost his footwork, he’s lost a lot of different things that made him good. We’re going to find out with Derrick Lewis. Is the guy going to get motivated? That’s one thing about our sport you can look like you’re just out of it and forgotten about then next thing you know you can resurge yourself.”
