Rothwell comes into his matchup with the former heavyweight champion dos Santos riding a four-fight winning streak.

During this stretch, Rothwell defeated Brandon Vera, Alistair Overeem, Matt Mitrione and Josh Barnett – all via finish (two knockouts, two submissions). Most recently, Rothwell gave Barnett the first submission defeat of his career, forcing the former UFC champ to tap out due to a second-round gogo choke.

Dos Santos, meanwhile, is 2-2 in his last four. He lost via TKO to Overeem in his most recent outing at UFC on FOX 17, and he squeaked out a decision victory over Stipe Miocic at UFC on Fox 13 prior to that. The Brazilian has never lost back-to-back fights in his career.
