A few weeks ago, Dana announced the winner of Carwin/Velasquez would face Brock. If Cain is injured, Carwin should get the shot.

Will be a great fight, that's for sure!

After what Brock did to Mir, I say Brock will win this... unfortunately.

I thought it got bumped up to UFC 104??

Oh well, in any event this match should keep us on the edhe of our seats.

Please consider England in your prayers!

Affliction transplant Ben Rothwell has agreed to face Cain Velasquez at UFC 104, replacing Shane Carwin, who is now booked to headline UFC 106 against Brock Lesnar.

The news was first reported by MMA Mania and subsequently confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight.

Rothwell had been scheduled to face Chase Gormley on the undercard of the Oct. 24 event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, a re-set of their scheduled meeting at Affliction “Trilogy” following the end of the clothing company's fight promotion and transfer of select contracts to the UFC.

The Rothwell/Velasquez bout will serve as the co-main event.

Rothwell (30-6) last appeared at manager/promoter Monte Cox's Adrenaline II last October, defeating Chris Guillen by TKO. It was his first win since Andrei Arlovski ended a 13-fight win streak by TKO at Affliction “Banned” last July.

Velasquez (6-0) last fought Cheick Kongo at UFC 99, winning a unanimous decision by escaping the Frenchman's pinpoint striking to dominate the fight on the ground.
