Ben Rothwell pledges not to fight Walt Harris after death of Aniah Blanchard

New, 19 comments

WASHINGTON — Ben Rothwell is the kind of fighter who never turns down an opponent and he’s willing to face anybody the UFC throws at him. For the first time maybe ever, Rothwell says there’s one person he won’t fight and that’s fellow heavyweight Walt Harris, who is still suffering through the tragic loss of his stepdaughter, which forced him out of his scheduled fight on the same card at UFC on ESPN 7.

Rothwell addressed Harris ahead of his fight this weekend against Stefan Struve as well as his recent reunion with head coach Duke Roufus.
