Two heavyweights are to clash as Stipe Miocic is set to take on Bwn Rothwell at UFC Fight Night Dublin, October 24th.
Stipe Miocic was expected to be next in line for a title shot and even spoke to MMA Crazy reporter Louise Green back in late June why he should be next in line, but it seems plans have changed.
Stipe Miocic has a MMA record of 13-2 and has won three out of his last four fights. Miocic holds notable wins over Roy Nelson, Fabio Maldonado and Gabriel Gonzaga just to name a few. Miocic most recent win was against Mark Hunt via TKO punches in Round 5 at UFC Fight Night 65 this past May.
Ben Rothwell has a MMA record of 35-9 and has also won three out of his last four fights. Rothwell hold notable wins over Alistair Overeem, Brandon Vera, Brendan Schaub and Roy Nelson. Rothwell’s most recent win was against Matt Mitrione via submission gogo choke at UFC Fight Night 68.
