LOS ANGELES – There was no shade of secrecy in Ben Rothwell’s pre-fight hype talk with reporters.

After 10 years working his way to the top of the mixed martial arts world, Rothwell, 28, was serious as a heart attack about what he was going to do to UFC 104 opponent Cain Velasquez – and what Velasquez was going to try to do to him.

“It’s no secret that he’s working to become a kickboxer who has a wrestling background, and if he gets in trouble, he’s going to take me to the ground, try to control me on the ground, grind out a decision,” said Rothwell, staring straight forward. “Basically, my game plan is to show him that he’s not the better kickboxer, stop his takedowns, and if it does go to the ground, beat him there too.
