Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) beefed up its UFC on FOX 18 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card — literally — with the addition of Josh Barnett vs. Ben Rothwell heavyweight hoedown tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 30, 2016) inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Check out Joe Rogan’s preview above.
Barnett (34-7) returned to combat sports after a lengthy absence — and a technical knockout loss to Travis Browne — by knocking around Roy Nelson for five rounds last September in Japan. Rothwell (35-9), meanwhile, is the winner of three straight, which includes three finishes, having recently submitted Matt Mitrione back in June.
The winner could find themselves atop a very short list of title contenders.
