    Yes. That would be a logic step.

    Im down. Nice, surprising addition to the irish card.

    Miocic via being more athletic.

    Rothwell is on a mission. He won't be denied.

    I think Miocic is too fast and skilled for Rothwell. He's fairly durable as well.

    Rothwell has the edge is size, strenght, power and chin. Miocic has a sizeable advantage everywhere else. I think it will end up like Miocic/Hunt.

    Pretty good fight.

    I don't know why you'd think this is strange, because Miocic isn't on a win streak or anything.

    He's ranked #3 and Rothwell's sitting at #6, but he's won his last three fights (all via stoppage).

    Sound matchmaking. I'm taking Big Ben.

    first reaction. probably because miocic has been talked A LOT on these forums as the next big thing and at one point people were actually talking about him getting the next title shot.

    Miocic wins this more often than not and it could look alot like him vs Nelson. The thing is, Rothwell can take some much pain and drag people into gunfights. If he can make this a brawl somehow, if see Miocic going down.
