    Fight through the illness....

    On another note, I'm glad to hear Rothwell made weight.

    Yeah like I get it when covid is the cause. Not really any avoiding that entirely in this day and age. But this trend of fighters having weight problems and random ailments right before fights so there 0 chance of any salvaging of the fight with a replacement is getting really old.

    He weighed in at 264 if I remember right. Sucks because I always like watching Ben fight.

    Damn. I wanted to see Big Ben get a W, and Lins was a super winnable matchup for him.

    This is a tough thing for an aging fighter. Although its just one match, the amount of time left in a aging fighters career is limited. Reminds me of Jim Miller a bit. Now how long does Ben have to wait to get rebooked, peak properly again and financial aspects of it.

    Aye. I've been rooting for a Big Ben comeback recently, but he just isn't picking up any steam. And this isn't helping.
