Rothwell was born in Kenosha Wisconsin in 1981. At age 18, he began training Jiu-Jitsu under former UFC fighter Rich Lucke at Team Punishment in Milwaukee. It was here that Ben took up MMA full time and eventually signed with the UFC after compiling a successful 8-1 amateur record.

While he has won several fights by knockout or submission during his career, most notably against Matt Mitrione at UFC Fight Night 68 which earned him ‘Performance of the Night’ honors from the promotion; overall it hasn’t been smooth sailing for Ben as 4 out of his last 6 fights have ended in defeat.

Despite all these challenges throughout his career so far – Ben remains humble but focused on becoming one day undisputed champion inside octagon cage showing world that anything can be achieved if you put your heart into something!
