    It will be interesting to see how this fight goes. Rothwell hasnt had much challengesas far as his career goes and Ricco hasnt looked to great against anybody good in a long time so I think that if ricco loses he needs to think about commentating because rothwell is good but he is not great. He would get destroyed by a Arlovksi, Vera or Couture Hell even cheik kongo could take him out.But if Ricco wants to continue fighting i think this is a must win. IDC whoo u r u want to fight in the UFC thats where the money and fame is.I think this fight could go either way. If he gets rothwell down he has a chance at winning but if he stands with Rothwell then he will be getting woke up after the fight.I would give it 2 Rothwell just cause he reminds me of sylvia and Ricco well we all kno how he did against Sylvia.
