Name: Ben Rothwell

Opponent: Blagoy Ivanov

Odds: +101 (bet $100 to win $101)

Rothwell is a fighter who has always been underrated. This is likely due to his physique not exactly being the large muscle-bound heavyweight that we tend to hype up. Add in that he has been away on a suspension, and there is even more reason to overlook him.

That being said, Rothwell is a much more diverse striker than Blagoy Ivanov. He also moves much more quickly than the Bulgarian. Ivanov does have a sambo and judo background, but Rothwell’s defensive grappling has led to some really high profile wins.
