Top heavyweight contender Ben Rothwell collides with former division champion Junior dos Santos later today (Sun., April 10, 2016) in the UFC Fight Night 86 mixed martial arts (MMA) main event inside Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia, airing live on FOX Sports 1.
“Big” Ben (36-9) is riding a torrid four-fight win streak — with four finishes — including last January’s submission victory over No. 9-ranked Josh Barnett. Prior to disposing of “The Warmaster,” Rothwell rid himself of Matt Mitrione, not long after knocking out No. 3-ranked Alistair Overeem.
Dos Santos (17-4) has some of the most dangerous hands in the entire weight class and once ruled the heavyweight division with an iron fist. Unfortunately, “Cigano” looked a bit punchy his last time out, crumbling in a heap against the aforementioned Overeem at UFC on FOX 17 and is now just 2-3 over his last five.
Here to tell you more about it is UFC color commentator Joe Rogan.
