Barnett vs. Rothwell Set for Jan. 30

Heavyweight contenders Josh Barnett and Ben Rothwell have faced the best of the best over the years, but they haven't faced each other, a dilemma that will be solved on Saturday, January 30, when they meet at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The FOX-televised event is headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Ryan "Darth" Bader. Tickets for the event go on sale on December 18.

Currently ranked sixth in the world, Josh "The Warmaster" Barnett is a former UFC heavyweight champion who has won two of three bouts since returning to the promotion in 2013. Most recently, he won Performance of the Night honors for his victory over Roy Nelson.

A veteran who will celebrate his 15th anniversary as a pro fighter in January, the eighth-ranked Ben Rothwell may very well be entering his prime at 34, as he's won three straight, knocking out Brandon Vera and Alistair Overeem and submitting Matt Mitrione.
