It took one left hook to turn the tables.
In last night’s heavyweight battle between Brendan Schaub and Ben Rothwell, the younger, more athletic Schaub was expected to send Big Ben out on his shield. And in the beginning, that’s what looked like was going to happen.
Schaub came forward with pressure after tagging Rothwell with a slick spinning back elbow, but the ever-durable Wisconsin native held his ground and fired back at the advancing Schaub, knocking him out cold with a left hook.
Just like that, Schaub’s prospects have become very dim thanks to his exposed chin and Rothwell is back in the win column, extending his stay in the octagon for now.
