Rothwell is tough as can be and has B level skills. If Reem rushes him too hard he could gas himself or get caught. Not a joke of a fight like people are saying. Also comparing Mir and Rothwell isn't really fair as Mir is known for folding under punishment.(He is the only example I can think of in MMA of a guy going into boxing style "just survive the fight" mode in his fight with Cormier.) Rothwell well he just keeps on brawling until you beat him senseless.

Yea, Rothwell has the type of style where this can backfire. Reem doesn't seem to have great fight IQ at all(showed good patience and composure in his last fight), but maybe training with Greg Jackson will change that

All I know is that when people use the Homer Simpson strategy on you, and have success, there's a problem there

Yes if you can be out game planned by a cartoon bar owner then you may be lacking in fight IQ.

quit bitching.... Allistair is a fun fighter to watch and while Rothwell isn't my favorite he almost always delivers with an exciting fight.

UFCs matchmaking is pretty stupid but this will be an entertaining fight. Plus, we've all seen Overeem drop it in big moments so who knows what will actually happen in this fight
