With the reason quarrel between Big Bens manager Monte Cox and IFL, Ben will sit out on this GP and check out the MMA market when his contract is up in January.
If he would then sign with the UFC, the question is obvious: How will he do against the tough HWs in the UFC?

I honestly think due to current events he would have a chance at making his way to a title shot. However i'm not entirely sure if he would be able to go much further than establishing himself as a top ten HW.

His win streak at the moment is one of the best anybody has in the HW division, he simply now needs the oppurtunity to step up to the UFC and take that chance.

I also think him vs Fedor is one of the best match ups possible for Fedor at the moment other than Barnett. Rothwell simply does not get enough credit from the fans of UFC but he gets plenty from the fans of MMA.

I couldnt see him beating Gonzaga let alone Nog or AA hell even Slivia would take im out he would be a mid level fighter in the UFC maybe a future EliteXC HW champ someday

About like Arlovski is right now.. Won't be champ, but beats the weaker guys.
