    Big Ben's clock just reset because it is birthday!!! On October 17, 1931 Al Capone was sentence to 11 years in prison for not paying taxes or something like that. Here's hoping Big Ben doesnt party to hard and end up on the...wrong side of the cage like Capone.

    He's still under USADA suspension until February 2019.

    It'll end up being nearly three years between fights if he comes back. Probably missed the boat now on any sort of run towards a title shot.

    Holy fuck, feels longer than that. iirc he had a TUE too didnt he? Crazy to ban him for that long on the first offense. Also other than stipe, DC, Blaydes ect I think he'd still be competitive with the wasteland that is HW. I mean fking Black Beast just got a title shot for his epic post fight interview lol. I dont think he'd ever win a title tbf but he's a big skilled dude he can still be top 10 ish i'd imagine.

    His run through Vera, Overeem, Mittrione, then Barnett was so entertaining.

    The UFC suspended Rothwell for 9 months after the Vera fight, due to elevated testosterone levels, so this latest instance wasn't considered his first offence.

    Despite Rothwell claiming to have been prescribed testosterone by a doctor, and submitting documentation to that effect, USADA didn't believe he met the criteria for a TUE, either, which probably would have saved him from this two-year ban.
