Over the Top: Rothwell KO’s Overeem in Connecticut



Any hopes and dreams that Alistair Overeem still may have had of securing a UFC title shot during this lifetime were shattered last night in Connecticut. The man responsible for swinging the hammer was none other than ‘Big’ Ben Rothwell.

It was a monster overhand right by Rothwell that sent The Reem to the canvas. Overeem would move from his back to the turtle position where Rothwell would jump right on top of him and land a multitude of unanswered shots until the fight was stopped. What came next was the real moment of the night. The Rothwell jig.
