“I’m willing to fight anyone the UFC wants me to fight in August. I’m going to beat whoever that is. I don’t care. Whoever it is, whoever you guys want to see me beat, I’m going to beat them in August. After that, I believe Alistair Overeem will be issued his license back December 27. That makes a perfect time for me to fight him New Year’s Eve, making me the number one contender after I beat his f—ing ass. I’m going to beat him and then I’m going to fight whoever the champion is after that. That is my plan. We’re going to see something that none of you thought was going to happen: Ben Rothwell become a contender and win the UFC belt and become the champion that this sport deserves. That’s what you’re going to see happen.”
After a resurgent Ben Rothwell took out Brendan Schaub at UFC 145 near a week ago, he took to sherdog radio to talk about his reinvigorated career and plans for the future.
However, is the big man biting off more than he can chew?
