Owens St-Prex – Ben Rothwell. Forecast and the announcement to fight

Night/early morning on Thursday, the UFC will hold its second tournament without spectators on “VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena”, in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. Event UFC Fight Night 171 includes the matches that were booked on cancelled because of the pandemic coronavirus events.

In the co-main event we are waiting for the debut of the St-Prex in the heavy division against Rothwell who has to drive to fit in the limit of 266 pounds (of 120.7 kg).

For a long time, St-Prex was in the top-15 light heavyweight division of the UFC, once he even fought with Jon Jones for the interim title, but his best years are long gone. In his last five fights OSP has a record of 2-3. The last fight he had in September, defeating Michal Oleksiichuk his signature move – the strangulation von flüe. This ethnic Haitian closed his defeat to Dominic Reyes and Nikita Krylov.

Rothwell also is at the final stage of his career. From April 2016 to July 2019 Rothwell lost all three of their matches and has served a two-year suspension for use of performance-enhancing drugs. For the time period of his unanimous judges ‘ decision won two ex-UFC heavyweight champion Junior DOS Santos and Andrei Orlovsky, as well as the former PFL champion Blagoi Ivanov. But in December, Rothwell came back with a very controversial win over Stefan Struve, which looked better “big Ben” during the fight, but was knocked out after two missed punches below the belt.

Forecast for battle

St-Prex, of course, inferior in dimensions, but it has always been a large light heavyweight. Rothwell in the current conditions is very slow with questionable cardio, even in his best years never was a dynamic fighter and therefore it will be difficult to use his advantage in striking power. Expect that at the end of the second or early third round Rothwell over “gasoline”, and St-Prex will be able to put him on his back and hold strangulation.
