Ben Rothwell scored a huge first-round victory by submitting Matt Mitrione at UFC Fight Night 68

At the UFC Fight Night 68 event in New Orleans, Louisiana, UFC) heavyweight Ben Rothwell earned his third straight first-round victory over Matt Mitrione through a submission. Later during his victory speech, “Big Ben” said that his next step would be the No. 1 contender's bout. And he also expressed his desire to face vet Andrei Arlovski.

His words:

"My performances have slowed me down in the past. Now, I think I've made a case for myself and things are different. Three-fight win streak, three finishes, I think it's time we make something happen. I know the championship happens next week, I think Stipe (Miocic) has built up a good case and I think he should have the next challenge (for the title). So I think Andrei Arlovski and I should dance. He's ranked fourth and some people are already talking about him getting the next title shot. I think him and I should fight next. I know he has a bit of an injury and he's going to take some time off, but I'll be ready for him when he is."

Below is his post-match interview:

With Andrei at the No. 4 UFC heavyweight spot, the No. 9 Rothwell will be trying to turn tables. “The Pitbull” vs “The Big Ben” will definitely be one hell of a contest !!
