Another One Bites the Dust: Ben Rothwell Suspended Two Years

Per USADA, Ben Rothwell has accepted a two-year sanction for a pair of failed drug tests back in February 2017. Rothwell attempted to get a TUE for testosterone, but was denied. — Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) April 6, 2018 The Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s heavyweight division has just lost one of its stalwarts. Ben Rothwell has been given a two-year ban for violating the UFC’s anti-doping policy. Rothwell’s ban comes on the heels of allegedly failing two out-of-competition tests from USADA in early 2017. Rothwell’s failure was triggered by the alleged presence of an anabolic androgenic steroid of exogenous origin. Following notification of his USADA violation, Rothwell released a statement: “With the recent news received from USADA I would like to take this time to let everyone know, I have been under the care of a physician and trying to overcome a medical illness. I would appreciate the chance to show that I have not cheated nor did I intended (sic) to cheat. Please hold your opinions of me until all the facts are out. I appreciate everyone's support as I go through the process with usada.

Asked to clarify the promotion’s official position on the fight, White said, “We, as the fans and as fight fans and as the people know who the champ is, if you win the fight. … If you win the fight, you’re the champ. To be the man, you beat the man. If you beat the man, it’s hard to deny that he’s champion. All technicalities, we will figure out after the fight.”

All Eyes on Me: Reflections on the Conor McGregor Debacle

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * In the aftermath of the doomed UFC 223 ( now available on Amazon Prime ) media day on Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, it has become clear that Conor McGregor just won’t let the spotlight shine outside of his vicinity. During the chaos-filled encounter between McGregor, his team, a charter bus and a number of fellow fighters, McGregor demonstrated once again that he embodies the “thug life” persona made famous by Tupac Shakur and the grandiose personality behind it, summed up by the “all eyes on me” motto. Now that he has our attention, what is he trying to show us? Since McGregor won the Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight strap at UFC 205 on Nov. 12, 2016, he has not stepped foot back inside the Octagon or made it known to the public when he plans to do so again. As a result, the UFC held an interim championship bout between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee , which Ferguson won by third-round submission.

Dana White to Conor McGregor: 'You don't get my help on this one'

“I honestly don’t know the answer to that question (if he’ll fight in the UFC again),” White said. “We were working on a new deal and new plan for him all this week, and then he shows up and this happens. … This has never happened before. This is a completley different situation than anything I’ve ever been in. Over the next several weeks, we’ve got to see how this thing plays out legally – legally, where this goes, and then he and I will sit down and talk.”

I grew up in US and Ireland (summers) with a dad from Ireland. That's why his behavior is concerning and that's why it makes me question his impulse control and temper. Conor has even talked about him and his dad getting physical.

UFC 223 staff picks: Is anyone picking Al Iaquinta to upset Khabib Nurmagomedov?

In the main event, Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) will fight Al Iaquinta (13-3-1 MMA, 8-2 UFC), and the winner will become the new lightweight champion. Iaquinta was supposed to open the main card against Paul Felder, but when featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) was declared unfit to weigh in Friday, Iaquinta ultimately was chosen as the replacement. The unbeaten Nurmagomedov is a heavy favorite, and only one of our 14 MMAjunkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers is picking against him to win the fight and finally become a UFC champ.

UFC 223 results: Devin Clark wears down Michael Rodriguez for decision win

The fighters clinched up early and Clark dragged Rodriguez to the canvas. Rodriguez didn’t need long to get back to his feet. They stayed tied up for more than a minute, until referee Dan Miragliotta finally broke them up. Two minutes in, Rodriguez fired a heavy low leg kick and took Clark’s legs right out from under him. Soon after, Rodriguez seemed to hurt Clark with punches, but they tied up again.

40 Bloody Elbow on Twitter

Taking Clark in this first fight. I like the basics of Rodriguez's game but his chain takedown defense looks pretty weak and Clark loves to grind. Wouldn't be at all surprised if Clark's wooden striking got him caught with something huge though. #UFC223

41 Sherdog.com on Twitter

Clark hasn't been getting much done on top but. Rodriguez scoots back to the cage but Clark able to get on the back w/ one hook and land moderate g&p to end the rd. 10-9 Clark #UFC223

42 Sherdog.com on Twitter

Rodriguez is pressuring to start R2. Clark steps in w/ a jab. Rodriguez hits front and body kicks before Clark ties up and pushes him into the fence once more #UFC223

43 Sherdog.com on Twitter

But Rodriguez isn't keeping distance, letting Clark grab him and put him on the fence once more. Rodriguez definitely doing more damage #UFC223

44 Bloody Elbow on Twitter

Huge elbow in tight for Rodriguez. Clark goes for a spinning attack in space and gets cracked hard for it. Rodriguez punishing him and he clinches up this time. #UFC223

45 Bloody Elbow on Twitter

No title should be on the line. Khabib winning over a guy with no camp and outside the top 10 isn’t impressive. If Al wins, it’s impressive but he shouldn’t be getting a belt. It’s just a fight to me. Personally, I think they should’ve just cancelled this card.
