‘The Dark Lord’ might do OK in BKFC

Ben Rothwell is set to make his first post-UFC appearance this weekend, taking on — say it with us now — Bobo “The Bible Belt Brawler” O’Bannon in BKFC. You know what, call us crazy, but considering his size, skills and experience, we kinda think Rothwell might do OK in BKFC. Plus, Melvin Manhoef calls it a career (but not before getting pounded into the Black Lands by Yoel Romero) and this weekend’s UFC Fight Night event seems like … well … straight trash.
