    Sry if there allready is a threat about this matchup, but i didnt find any so yeah...

    Now that we know Stipe will face Breakdance Ben, who will take it?

    I'd like to see both guys win, but sadly, thats not happening. Stipe by UD, or Ben by KO in the first. Ben will need to finish it quick, because stipe has cardio for days, much like sealevel Cain.

    This also is one of the big HW matchups.

    What do we got now?

    Horrible rematch for title with werdum vs Velasquez
    Also Big Country vs Josh Barnett
    We got Arlovski vs Mir
    Hopefully, we'll get overeem vs JDS next.
    Only Travis Browne and mark hunt without matchup now. Maybe if fedor returns, we'll get a rematch between Hunt and Fedor? i dunno where Travis' at with his legal issues.

    I think it is going to look a lot like Miocic/Hunt.

    Why is that a horrible match? Who would of been better? ...Just curious.

    I predict Miocic TKO's Rothwell in the third.

    Miocic dismantles Rothwell with ease.

    I think Miocic is the better fighter but Big Ben just finds a way to win. Ben knocks out the fashionable Miocic in round 1.

    Rothwell and ease are not two words that go together :)

    I can see Rothwell knocking him out, I cant see Miocic knocking Rothwell out.

    Miocic could very well dominate him to a decision though.

    I think Miocic for sure, he seems like a real pro and not to get down on the guy, but Ben comes across as a bit of a head case.

    Werdum tooled Cain. Not close to warranting an immediate rematch. Cain's last win was almost who years ago. Who would have been better?

    Arlovski
    Miocic
    Even JDS as he has a win over Werdum and recent win over Stipe

    The matchup makes sense, I think....at least as much sense as possible in the HW division. I think Miocic wins the same way he beat Nelson. I'm already cringing at the dumb shit Rothwell will say to hype the fight.

    I would have liked to see Cain vs Overeem and JDS rematch Werdum for the title.
    Now... If JDS wins his next and Cain wins the title back, you're in for Cain JDS 4?? The UFC did better by giving JDS his title fight now, Cain vs Overeem, Arlovski vs Miocic for nr1 contender (with Cain/Reem also, but that's trouble for later) Then they could do Rothwell vs Mir.

    IMO, that's what I liked to see, and it all makes sense in my mind.

    Rothwell is going to crush Miocic. There is a lot of fan boy hype around Miocic but he is just not that good.

    Most everybody here said that Mitrione would beat Rothwell also but I knew better.

    Rothwell is awesome and I cant wait for his speech after smashing Miocic. It will be a good day had by all.

    Miocic outclasses Rothwell. If he doesnt get the KO, it will be a dominant decision.

    Go watch another sport. This is the heavyweight division. Rothwell hits plenty hard to catch Stipe and get a KO but Stipe is by far the more skilled fighter and the smart money is on Stipe.

    I always pull for Rothwell's opponent. Can't stand him.
