    Hardly the big news he was going on about, he's getting Reems sloppy 2nds after he already beat Reem....

    Sounds good to me. Also sounds like it could get Ben a title shot and send JDS into retirement at the same time.

    Terrible fight.

    If Rothwell loses and never gets his TS he should go to Bellator.

    Interesting that they put Ben in front for the promo pic.

    I love JDS but I'm rooting for Rothwell at this point. He needs to get the recognition he deserves.

    If Rothwell wins this, then there is no denying him a title shot. I think JDS will win by decision, though.

    Ben just wants some money and a contract with Bellator, his physique does not please dfw's fickle sensability's.

    He is, but they seem to strongly believe that he's not to be used for marketing purposes.

    I think you may be right. I like Ben and all but JDS is going to be very wary of losing 3 out of 4. He may even fight more safe than he did against Reem just to get a W. Rothwell is going to have to be ultra aggressive and take care of business. I hope he does.

    Even if Rothwell beats JDS, Overeem is still the one who knocked out JDS first

    Rothwell by sub, and hopefully retires JDS - he was too gunshy

    Doesn't matter because Rothwell still has a win over Overeem.

    Looks like UFC is hoping Rothwell will lose so they don't have to give him a title shot.

    UFC match making is pathetic. Your real number one contender on a 4 fight win streak is facing a guy who is 2-3 in the past 4 years and just got KO'd in his last fight. This fight makes zero sense.
