Another abandoned Affliction bout has found a home.

Ben Rothwell and Chase Gormley will make their Octagon debuts in a heavyweight bout at UFC 104 on Oct. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations.

I noticed that, lol.

I like this move. I don't know much about Gormley, but I think Rothwell could make for some interesting match ups. I think he'll be a great gatekeeper.

Glad to see Rothwell in the UFC, he is tough and should make for some good fights. Not a title contender, but a good adiition for sure.

I want to see Rothwell vs Hardonk!

I thought SF was going to gobble up all of these affliction fighters, but good to see UFC get a few.

I see some good matchups for Rothwell.

Rothwell adds some much needed depth, credibility and more importantly- EXPERIENCE to the UFC's HW division. His addition, whether he wins or loses against UFC guys, will be a huge boost for their careers. Great move by the UFC

It's good to see Ben Rothwell will finally get to fight for the UFC. I thought he'd end up being the IFL champion before he and Whitehead left. Hopefully he gets the win.
