- Ben Rothwell has been suspended for nine months after showing elevated levels of testosterone following his TKO win over Brandon Vera. Rothwell released a statement to MMAJunkie.com revealing that the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services only issued a warning regarding the elevated testosterone levels, but that the UFC decided to place him on suspension anyway. Rothwell received permission from the commission prior to the fight to undergo testosterone replacement therapy.
- Currently stuck between Bellator and the UFC due to contract negotiations, Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren exercised some of his restlessness this week by calling out UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre via Twitter.
Not retiring yet, still 1 person I want to beat up. @GeorgesStPierre @ufc @danawhite
Once I figured out GSPs dark place didn't really exist I knew he would be easy prey!
Seriously though GSP in 2009 prob would have beat me, but this current version fights way too scared!
I will lay on GSP for as long as I damn well please.
The undefeated Askren last appeared in action in July, defeating Andrey Koreshkov via TKO. GSP is on the schedule to face Johny Hendricks next month.
