Hey UFC, rank Rotwell!
BigBen Rothwell should always have at least the co-mainevent. 😋
I really don't like how the UFC treats him.
UFC Vegas 9: Overeem vs. Sakai.
Mainevent was Overeem vs. Sakai.
Co-Mainevent was Ovince St. Preux vs. Alonzo Menifield.
Winners were Overeem and Ovince St. Preux.
Against both Rothwell won and is 1:0.
But now the UFC and its aligned media outlets/websites are only discussing how to rank Overeem, whereas Rothwell isn't ranked at all and no UFC-official or media-henchman is rising the question how to rank Rothwell. 😪
It is just ridiculous.
Likewise were the rigged decisions against Rothwell in his fights against Arlovski and Ivanov.
It is imho not okay the UFC disadvantages Rothwell in such a manner, only because Rothwell is 38 and some yupie-UFC-market-analyst came to the conclusion that it would be financially better to build up new 'stars' and start building up an arc of suspense with younger fighter than giving Rothwell the credit and chances he deserves.
PS: Like your post anyway, as the Rothwell corner should to stick together. 😊

Edson Barboza, DEC
Barboza looked great against Ige, and he should have won the decision. Yusuff is a tough fight, but if he wons it, can you imagine him against Stephens, Kattar or Emmett ? Lots of new exciting matchups for him. Even if he loses, who doesn't want to see him fight Cub Swanson, or even Alex Cacerès ?
Rothwell vs. Tybura
Ben Rothwell, DEC
Rothwell is slow as hell, but he is tougher than Tybura and lands harder... I like Rothwell but he's not very exciting to watch recently.
Perez vs. Almeida
Thomas Almeida, TKO, R3
Almeida has been kind of a disapointment in the UFC thus far in terms of potential, but Win or lose, he is still very fun to watch.
Spivak vs. Aspinall
Tom Aspinall, TKO, R1
Aspinall impressed the **** out of me last time. It's a little bit soon, but he looks like a top heavyweight talent thus far, and Spivak, who is a decent fighter, will answer a lot of questions.
Chikadze vs. Morales
Giga Chikadze, DEC
Wow, great fight. Both very talented, but I've been impressed with Chikadze. Of course he is a great striker, but he really showed a well rounded game in his UFC career, and he is improving every fight. But Morales is a warrior, this will be his toughest test thus far...
