ufc fight night 86

Ben Rothwell can move one step closer to competing for the UFC heavyweight title if he can take out another former champion this April.

Rothwell and Junior dos Santos will headline the first card to take place in Croatia, as UFC Fight Night 86 goes down April 10 from the Arena Zagreb.

After submitting Josh Barnett, Rothwell (36-9) will be looking to move his current win streak to five straight. The last two have come via gogo choke, and he also holds a knockout vs. former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem to his credit.

Dos Santos (17-4) is just 2-3 over his last five after winning nine straight at one point. His last fight was a TKO loss to Overeem.
