‘Big’ Ben Rothwell was in attendance for this past weekends UFC 189. The UFC heavyweight fighters soaked in the experience and said it was so massive that it actually had him tearing up.

Here’s what he said while on The MMA Hour:

“When you’re sitting ringside, you can’t see how daunting a filled arena of just screaming fans is. And I literally, I wanted to fight so bad.

“To be a part of that event, to feel the energy, to feel what I’m fighting for, it did — I teared in my eye because I was getting so intense. I just could’ve went and fought anyone Saturday night.”
