Affliction’s Ben Rothwell vs. Chase Gormley Bout Moved to UFC 104

The heavyweight bout between former IFL stud Ben Rothwell and Chase Gormley, which was originally slated to take place this weekend at Affliction: Trilogy, has been signed for UFC 104 on October 24th inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Rothwell holds an impressive 30-6 record, taking 16 of his last 18 fights. He rebounded nicely from a third round knockout loss to Andrei Arlovski at Affliction: Banned last July to sub Chris Guillen with elbows in the first round of their Adrenaline MMA II bout last December.

Gormley was an NAIA All-American Wrestler for Lindenwood University. He holds a perfect 6-0 mark, however that has been against the who’s-who-is-this of MMA. Rothwell will clearly be the toughest test of his young career.
