MMAJunkie.com is reporting that Ben Rothwell will meet MMA veteran Gilbert Yvel inside the GM Place in Vancouver, Canada.
Rothwell was forced to pull out of this past Saturday’s match with Cro Cop due to a severe case of traveler’s flu. Although he was hopeful to get a do-over against the Croatian, it looks like he’ll have to settle for the Dutchman instead.
Yvel, who owns a 36-14-1 pro record, made his Octagon debut earlier this month at UFC 108. Although the Dutchman was grateful to finally get an opportunity to compete on MMA’s biggest stage, he was hoping for a better result than the first round TKO loss Junior Dos Santos handed him.
UFC 115 is expected to take place on June 12th.
