UFC 115 | Big Ben Decisions The HurricaneCategory: MMA
One of the undercards for UFC 115 is a battle between two heavyweights who had just lost their respective UFC debuts.
“Big” Ben Rothwell (30 wins-7 losses, 13 KOs / 11 submissions) is ranked in the top 15 in the world by Sherdog in the heavyweight division.
His Octagon debut was at UFC 104 last October 24, 2009 where he lost to Cain Velasquez via TKO in the 2nd Round.
Gilbert “The Hurricane” Yvel (36 wins-14 losses, 31 KOs / 5 submissions) was one of the first Dutch fighters who successfully applied the Muay Thai striking style to MMA. Yvel has acquired, through a number of instances, a lingering reputation in the MMA community for his temper and poor sportsmanship in the ring.
His Octagon debut was at UFC 108 last January 2, 2010 where he lost to Junior dos Santos via TKO in the 1st Round.
Two consecutive losses in the UFC will spell doom with either of them.
