Ben Rothwell

Although UFC Dublin has taken some hits in terms of fighters getting injured, there’s still some fun going on, like this classic moment at the fan Q&A…..

UFC Fight Night 76 goes down this afternoon (Saturday October 24, 2015) in Dublin, Ireland, and will transpire with a significantly weaker card than originally planned. First of all Ben Rothwell and Stipe Miocic were pulled from the card, then the main event of Joe Duffy vs. Dustin Poirier fell to pieces also. The headlining attraction for the show is now Paddy Holohan vs. Louis Smolka at flyweight.

Although Conor McGregor offered to step in and face ‘Diamond’ in a rematch of their UFC 178 collision, Poirier vouched to hold off and wait for ‘Irish’ Joe. ‘The Notorious’ then cancelled his attendance at the UFC Dublin fan Q&A, but it was still quite an entertaining affair, mostly because of an hilarious moment between Ben Rothwell and a fan in the audience.

The eager crowd fired multiple questions off at Max Holloway, Andrei Arlovski, Rory MacDonald and ‘Big’ Ben ahead of the weekend’s activities, and it led to this brilliant mispronunciation by Rothwell, and a resulting troll from an Irish fan that needs to be seen. The question was posed; which fighters inspire you? Rothwell meant to say he looks to Daniel Cormier vs. Alexander Gustafsson for inspiration.

MMA Digest made the mash up, and here it is:

Does anyone sense a new nickname for ‘The Mauler’?
