Travis Browne Interested In Facing Ben Rothwell, Mentions TUF 17 Finale

Both are coming off a loss, so as far as Travis Browne is concerned, a meeting with Ben Rothwell makes perfect sense.

Browne (13-1-1) suffered his first career defeat late in 2012, falling to Antonio Silva. “Hapa” suffered a hamstring injury in the loss, but did add that he would be down for facing Gabriel Gonzaga after the bout was presented to him by his follows on Twitter.

Rothwell (32-9) was defeated by Gonzaga Saturday night at UFC on FX 7. The veteran was looking to build off a win over Brendan Schaub in 2012, but was unable to stay clear of Gonzaga on the ground.

    I think it’s stupid for him to fight a guy who is not ranked top 10. If anything book a fight with Roy Nelson.
