Another abandoned Affliction bout has found a home.

Ben Rothwell and Chase Gormley will make their Octagon debuts in a heavyweight bout at UFC 104 on Oct. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations.

The matchup had originally been scheduled to take place at Affliction “Trilogy” on Aug. 1. However, Affliction Entertainment cancelled its anticipated third event 10 days out, after main event fighter Josh Barnett tested positive for an anabolic steroid in a pre-fight test.

Rothwell (30-6) rebounded from a third-round knockout loss to Andrei Arlovski at Affliction 1 in July 2008 to submit Chris Guillen with elbows in the first round at Adrenaline MMA 2 last December. An IFL standout, the Wisconsin native has won 16 out of 18 bouts since 2004, including victories over Roy Nelson, Ricco Rodriguez, and Krzysztof Soszynski.

The 25-year-old Gormley was an NAIA All-American Wrestler for Lindenwood University. Gormley (6-0) earned a unanimous decision against former super heavyweight Eric Pele at MFC 16 in June 2008.

I seen Nelson and Rothwell fight in the IFL! I wouldn't consider that a strong win. In fact I may have given that fight to Roy!

I gave that fight to Roy. Rothwell had some strong words towards Matt after he left MFS (he later retracted) but I just think the guy is an idiot.

Lets see what happens when the bout takes place.

I dont care much for Ben Rothwell...but I'm pleased for Miletich :)

If memory serves Roy even stood with him when Rothwell was supposed to be a feared striker and Roy a ground guy!
