Two Top Ten Heavyweights Collide at UFC Dublin

<p>The promotion confirmed on Friday that a rumored bout between Stipe Miocic and Ben Rothwell is indeed on for the card, in a match that will likely line up the next contender for the heavyweight championship to face the winner of the newly announced Werdum/Velasquez rematch.</p> <p>Miocic (12-2), the No. 3 ranked heavyweight in the UFC, had been on a three-fight winning streak in 2014, on a warpath towards a title shot, before being bested in an acclaimed bout with Junior dos Santos last December. A subsequent dominant win over Mark Hunt has him back on track, and a win over Rothwell here will almost certainly result in a title shot.</p> <p>Rothwell (35-9), No. 7 in the heavyweight division, likely has a slightly longer path to the belt, even with a win over Miocic, but he will certainly be in the conversation with a strong win here. He’s currently in the middle of a winning streak, holding victories over Brandon Vera, Alistair Overeem, and Matt Mitrione.</p> <p>Miocic/Rothwell will co-main to lightweight bout “Irish” Joe Duffy (14-1) vs. Dustin Poirier (18-4), which itself has implications on the lightweight title scene.</p>
