    Not a fan of either guys and Stipe is definitely the more talented fighter but I think Ben is going to derail Stipe's title run. Ben by 1 punch KO.

    I'm thinking there's going to be money to be made on Ben this fight. Probably at least +300 Big Ben. Definitely a bet worth taking IMO.

    It would be funny if Stipe gets tired and Rothwell starts attacking him Guida style.

    big ben's herky jerky style might just win him this one
    good fight
    makes sense, stipe is higher on the rankings but ben has the longer streak against good competition

    Good fight gentlemen. I have a feeling we are going to hear another Rothwell legendary post fight interview. Rothwell by punches KO, early. He hits too hard for Stipe, although Stipe has decent power I believe Rothwell the better chin.

    Thats actually a good fight.
    Its better that the fighters get a fight than sits on the line waiting for a title fight.

    My ideal situation:

    A) Cain gets hurt, Arlovski subs in against Werdum
    B) Arlovski beats Werdum for the belt
    C) Big Ben KO's Stipe
    D) Big Ben and Arlovski rematch for the belt
    E) Cain never fights again

    Good fight! And it makes sense considering both guys are in a similar position at HW and on a good streak. Both guys are 4/5 beating some good names, Ben is on a 3 fight streak with 3 solid finishes.

    Winner is a win away from the title shot IMO

    Stipe should win unless he gets caught. I think he's a better striker, and he's definitely a better athlete and wrestler. I think he'll win a comfortable decision, on the feet, maybe mixing in takedowns too.

    Not sure why people think stipe deserves a title shot; he's on a 1 fight win streak.

    Puncher's chance for Rothwell. Most likely he's a heavy bag for 3 rounds, good showcase to set Miocic for a title shot.

    If Overeem beats JDS and Rothwell beats Stipe, Overeem does not leapfrog over Big Ben due to him being knocked out by him recently.
