UFC 145 Results: Ben Rothwell Upsets Brendan Schaub Via Knockout

Andrew SaundersCorrespondent IIApril 21, 2012

Ben Rothwell survived early trouble from a big elbow out of The Ultimate Fighter runner-up Brendan Schaub.

He followed it up in a major way when he landed three consecutive left hooks that separated Schaub from consciousness. Three big punches on the ground had Herb Dean separating these heavyweights quickly.

Entering the UFC with a record of 30-6, Rothwell had a big experience advantage coming into the fight. With time against big strikers like Andrei Arlovski, Mark Hunt and Cain Velasquez, Rothwell knows what to expect. This win evens Rothwell up to 2-2 in the Octagon.

At one point, Schaub was on a four-fight win streak and likely on the cusp of title contention when he faced Big Nog at UFC 134. This loss puts him in the first two-fight skid of his career and bumps his UFC record down to 4-3, with additional losses coming at the hands of Nogueira and "Big Country" Roy Nelson.
