    Thoughts? JDS is my favorite fighter but I have a soft spot for Rothwell, so I am torn. I just hope JDS doesn't get KO'd again

    I'll be happy for whoever wins this one. Would be an Overeem-ish comeback win for JDS, or an undeniable TS for Cackling Ben.

    I don't know what to think about JDS anymore. That Overeem/JDS fight should've been a double KO with how awful they both performed.

    It's a fight that makes no sense for Rothwell whatsoever. He deserves the shot, no if and's or butts about it.

    Terrible fight. Makes no sense and the UFC just wants to derail Rothwell.

    It's also a big lose/lose situation for JDS. If he loses against Rothwell he'll be seen as done and it'll be a really bad loss for his career. If he wins people will just say that Rothwell was never that good.

    Shit fight UFC.

    Would love JDS to get back on track with a dominant win but all the momentum is with Ben.

    If Rothwell wins this they pretty much HAVE to give him the shot right?

    I'm not sure why people complain. Rothwell deserves a title shot but putting him against someone who just had a bad performance is an unfair tactic to derail him?

    My boy JDS should be given a can. Believe you on me or not, I think Rothwell is the favorite here, unless the real JDS shows up.

    Why didn't they give him Overeem?
    I'd love to see Rothwell fight for the belts

    Would really love this fight, just to see what JDS his approach is in this one. He seemed very anxious against Reem.

    Give overeem who? Overeem just KO'd JDS and Rothwell just KO'd Overeem. So, who you got in mind for Overeem?

    Why are people always talking about derailing? No offence, but if he gets a title shot and wins, won't he have to face JDS sooner or later? If he can't beat him then he doesn't deserve to be champion, so what's the difference if he has to fight someone higher ranked first?
