"I'll openly say, the winner of this fight (Ben Rothwell vs. Travis Browne) is going to go on and win the heavyweight title," Rothwell told MMAjunkie.com Radio.

"In the shape that I'm in at 265, and some of these guys are fast at 240 (or) 235 pounds, they feel they have an advantage," Rothwell said. "Well, what happens when one of the guys who's 265 who's in just as good of shape if not better than the guys who are 240 and used to being faster? What are they going to do when the guy who's the biggest in the division is faster than them, more conditioned than them, (and) has better technique than them?

"People are going to start crying real soon."

What are they going to do when the guy who's the biggest in the division is faster than them, more conditioned than them, (and) has better technique than them?

So Ben thinks hes faster, more conditioned, and has better technique than Velasquez (who ran through him), JDS, Mir, Overeem? Hell lets throw Cormier in there for fun.

Lest we forget the awesome shape he was in when he fought Hunt and Yvel.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

He looked pretty good against that fat kid.

It's already started, UFC 147, all night with the tears.

This fight though,
