FIRED UP! ‘Overeem has brain damage’

UFC 145: Schaub v Rothwell
“He posts that, and I didn’t even have to say a word because it seemed like all the forums and media took care of it for me,” said Rothwell. “The general consensus was that this guy had brain damage. I think he’s getting hit in the head too many times to make that comment.

“If I was his coach or I was his teammate, I’d be like: ‘Dude, shut up. Stay out of media. You’re going into a fight that you cannot lose against a guy who could beat you, and you’re talking trash about a guy who just beat you. This makes no sense.’ Him talking trash on me right now while he’s going into a fight against Stefan Struve is only going to hurt him. I don’t know what he’s trying to do, because every time he talks all trash against Travis Browne and Bigfoot Silva, it has not turned out well for him. And he’s doing it again.”

‘Big’ Ben Rothwell tells MMAFighting.com what he thinks of his prior opponent, Alistair Overeem.

“The Reem” recently stated that he could beat Rothwell 9 out of 10 times.
