Ben Rothwell returns in August, Brendan Schaub and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira possible opponents

UFC heavyweight banger, Ben Rothwell has confirmed that he should be back in the octagon in August after a prolonged period on the sidelines due to an injury and it appears he already has his sites on a couple of potential opponents already.

Rothwell revealed that he was due to face Shane Carwin in August but the former Interim Champion didn’t want to wait that long for a fight. He also said UFC matchmaker, Joe Silva has lined him up to face either Brendan Schaub or Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira when he does indeed return.

Rothwell had previously targeted a fight against Schaub, who is coming off an impressive knockout win over Mirko Cro Cop earlier this year. Rothwell was last in action against Gilbert Yvel, pulling off a rather unimpressive unanimous decision win.
