Default Velasquez vs Rothwell UFC 104
On the heels of Shane Carwin being scratched from UFC 104 to challenge Brock Lesnar for the division title in November, ( can confirm that former IFL and Affliction heavyweight standout Ben Rothwell has agreed to step in for “The Engineer” versus Cain Velasquez on Oct. 24.

Rothwell is coming off a dominating TKO win over Chris Guillen at Adrenaline II back in December 2008. Prior to that, “Big” was riding a career high 13-fight win streak before running into former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in July 2008 during the inaugural Affliction event.
This will be a decent fight. UFC is doing a lot of shifting and shuffling lately. Or maybe they always do this but there is a huge press leak lately.
