UFC heavyweight contender Ben Rothwell (35-9 MMA) is currently riding an impressive three-fight win streak, which includes victories over Alistair Overeem, Brandon Vera, and most recently Matt Mitrione.
“Big Ben” believes he is just one win away from a chance at UFC heavyweight gold and hopes that a future victory over either Andrei Arlovski or Junior dos Santos can earn him that shot (via MMAJunkie):
“I’ve been in this sport a long time, and I feel like dues are paid,” said Rothwell. “I just feel like I need one more win before I make that call. So give me Andrei (Arlovski) or Junior (dos Santos) and I’ll prove my case.”
Who would you like to see the 33-year-old veteran battle next? Does a fight with Arlovski or “JDS” make sense for “Big Ben”? Sound off Penn Nation!
