Rothwell at the ripe age of 30 is still pulling victories at the highest level of mixed martial arts. We last saw Rothwell in a unanimous decision loss to Mark Hunt at UFC 135 in Sept. 2011. Will Rothwell now back in the win column, we can expect to see the former kick boxer returning against a top 10 heavyweight opponent.
