    He’s also 5’8. The size comparison between him and Rothwell will be hilarious next weekend.

    He's 5'-9" and 287 lbs. That's the height of a featherweight. How embarrassing. Rothwell is being handed a can. If he loses, it's a definite cut.

    I've followed his career since the start on hdnet. He's a fun mid level brawler

    He's also 21-6 and on a 6-fight win streak.

    Apparently he has some bombs because four of those recent wins are by KO/TKO.

    This may be a case of 'don't judge a book by its BMI.'

    I'm dubious of this guys ability to handle a 21 lb weight cut.

    All these Sherdoggers disrespecting "Huggy Bear" just have no idea. He's a legend.

    Actually glad to see him I need a higher level promotion. I had always wondered why he wasn’t picked up by a Bellator or PFL. Joke all you want, but he is one of the more consistent HWs on the regional scene. It was about time.

    Let’s hope usada doesn’t look extra hard based on the history of his relative.

    For those who have never watched him, he's very entertaining with a big personality.

    A UFC debut against Rothwell is a shit situation for anyone, but I'm glad to see him finally on a big stage.

    Hope we get to see a backflip after a wild ass KO in the octogan eventually.

    i'm pretty sure it's because he can't control his weight. but yeah, i'm glad to see him finally get his chance after all these years. Huggy Bear is pure entertainment.
