Let’s welcome the heavyweights to UFC Fight Island 5. Ben Rothwell vs. Marcin Tybura will be a battle of behemoths with weighing in at/over 250 pounds, and it will be a true slug fest.

Starting with Rothwell (38-12), a veteran of the truest sense that has had many ups and downs. That can help him tonight. However, he and Tybura are very similar in terms of style. Both are clinch types that can make it hard for the opponent to escape from it. Coming off a two-fight win streak, Rothwell should be motivated enough to make it three.

For ‘Tybur’, the Polish heavyweight will look to beat an experienced Rothwell at his own game. Coming off two much needed wins, both unanimous decisions over Sergey Spivak and Maxim Grishin respectively. Marcin will look to keep this one in close distance and that can make the difference between a win and a loss. He enters with a 19-6 mark in MMA and a 6-5 UFC record.
