Even though he was pulled from the event, Rothwell still went to Dublin this week for the fight card and talked to the media about how Miocic has already been booked for a fight against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 195.

In addition, Rothwell explained how he is looking to fight someone that is ranked higher than him and mentioned how he would be ready to replace Alistair Overeem if he is unable to compete at UFC on FOX 17 against former champion Junior dos Santos.
