Jul 25, 2012 - Heavyweight Ben Rothwell has pulled out of his UFC on FOX 4 against Travis Browne due to an injured ankle, MMAFighting.com has learned from sources close to the fight. The fight was supposed to take place on the FOX portion of the card.

According to other sources, the UFC has offered former Strikeforce fighter Devin Cole the opportunity to fight Browne on FOX, however, MMAFighting.com has been unable to confirm whether Browne vs. Cole will happen next week with anyone close to Cole's camp.

Rothwell (32-8) last competed at UFC 145 when he knocked out Brendan Schaub. Browne (13-0-1) was also victorious at UFC 145, submitting Chad Griggs in the first round.

Cole (20-9-1) last fought for Strikeforce in December. He would be entering this fight riding a two-fight winning streak.

UFC on FOX 4, headlined by Shogun Rua vs. Brandon Vera, airs live on Aug. 4 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Link

Son of a gun, I was really anticipating this one. Sucks for Brown although I'm sure he'll run through Cole.

Fuck this was a huge fight to lose.

Devin Cole?!?! I recall him getting murderized in his last fight at 205 against Te Huna...this will be ugly and is sending a lamb to the slaughter

I would love for Kongo to replace Ben, but Kongo could barely stand at the end of that clinchfest. I don't think he has the energy for another clinchfest.

You recall wrong son. Te Huna has never murderized Cole.

I thought Strikeforce fighters couldn't fight in the UFC....yeah except for Diaz, Shields, Hendo and now Cole. I guess this is an okay match up though. It should be entertaining while it lasts. Cole can take punishment but I am not sure he is going to be able to withstand Browne for 3 rounds. It is a step down the ladder for Browne but I suppose that is how things go every once in a while.
