    Stipe is about -300.

    Decent bet on Rothwell. I could see him overpowering Stipe. Stipe is too soft emotionally. Rothwell is a f'g animal with tons more experience and wars!

    Im on board the Big Ben wagon for now....hope he win. Funny thing is that if he does win he may get a title shot and would be one punch away from being HW champ. Can we even imagine that?? Ben Rothwell HW champ in 2016

    Tough fight for Rothwell I see Miocic being to technical on his feet and avoiding the ground.
    Stipe by via decision.

    Stipe has probably the least KO power in the HW division outside of Rosholt. And we know Rothwell is near indestructible. Hate this situation for Stipe. Its a lose lose for him no matter the outcome. Hes not finishing Rothwell and its a good chance AA does with Mir so more then likely pitbull will have a better case for a title shot

    Rothwell might KO him, Miocic is better in every area but Rothwell has that brute strength and Miocic is very hittable IMO.

    Cheering for Miocic but Rothwell is dangerous. Though a sound beating would put Miocic in his place for saying he deserved a title shot coming off a win after a loss to JDS. I'd rather see Rothwell vs Cain II and Miocic vs Stuve II.

    I'm surprised they didn't make this the main event.

    Interesting fight for what's left. All of the HW top 10 except for Travis Browne (who is out until his case is cleared up) is all booked now.

    Stipe by just being a better fighter, Rothwell always has a puncher's chance though.
