Ben Rothwell has quickly become a fan-favorite fighter. From giving out free t-shirts during a recent Q&A event, to the menacing laugh he does during post-fight Octagon interviews, Rothwell is loved by many.
However with his recent comments towards former UFC middleweight kingpin, Rothwell likely didn’t earn himself any extra fans.
He spoke on The MMA Hour.
“I’m going to say it, Anderson Silva destroyed his legacy. Not because he got busted, but after the fact, him continually denying (everything), showing just what a coward he is. No respect from me whatsoever. To contstantly be like, really dude? You were tested multiple times. You had these substances in your body. Like, who are you trying to lie to? You got busted. You’re a cheat. You fucked up, royally. Why are you going to sit here and continue to say you didn’t do it? It’s a disgrace. And you’re not a man. I don’t care. You can throw some good punches and kicks, but inside as a person, you are gone. You’re nothing.”
Did Rothwell go too far?
