Why isn't Ben Rothwell fighting in the UFC?

The guy is a strait up beast. He might not be a top 5 HW but he is an exciting fighter who would give alot of tough guys problems. I dont know why he isnt in the UFC. There are plenty of stiffs in that division that couldnt hold Rothwell's jock.

I agree with you dun. The guy at least deserves a chance to fight in the ufc. Ive seen a few of his matches and he has some really good skills. Hopefully we will see him in the ufc soon

Spot on Dun, I've had my eye on Rothwell for a while now. The guy is on a MASSIVE run. He's had like 10 win or something in the IFL. The UFC should sign this guy ASAP.

I rather see Rothwell fighting for MFS than Tim Sylvia. I've liked Rothwell for a while and yes he is a beast.

Its amazing how many of his TKOs are because he actually injurred his opponent.

What impresses me is that a man of his size, being able to kick that high.

Ghizman has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I like Rothwell too. Very agile and strong, and VERY exciting fights all the time. The only thing is has he been tested yet? His loses are to Dan Christianson, Mike Whitehead, Tim Sylvia, Carlos Barreto, and some guy name Ibragaim something. Those were a long time ago, and he has definetly gotten better and impressed me a lot. But before we let him in the UFC have him fight some other good or proven heavyweights not in the IFL? Buentello, Monson, Sims, Ricco?? I just don't want him to go into the UFC and get held down by a Jake O'Brien then lose to Cheik Kongo or something. Not saying that would happen to him, but I just don't want his managers to blow there load with him like Mike Whitehead's manager's did to him. Let him fight some others guys besides the IFL heavyweights. He hasn't fought Igor yet in the IFL has he? Igor is still at Heavyweight I think?
