There was an article written "Ben Rothwell blasts Steve Mazzagatti's stoppage" that was a complete fabrication being posted on forums by:

CageReport.net - MMA, UFC, news, interviews and more

Please visit them, scroll down, and read the retraction. Both cagereport.net and Latest MMA News Now wrote articles that were untrue. I did not give an interview or comments to either website yet they quote me in the article.

I am speaking to an attorney because this type of slander must be stopped, for everyone's sake. Otherwise pros will shut there doors to media even more, which just hurts the fans.


I do want to take this time to thank all the fans and supporters, and I want to apologise that someone in the MMA media would do this. In the end, it just hurts all of us.

i met ben rothwell down at strikeforce 2 days ago before i flew back to toronto , he was the nicest fighter i met the whole time we talked for 5 minutes and i was stupid drunk, was surprised when i mentioned crocop but still the guy is misrepresented by the media and what ive seen , he was really cool and did not seem like the guy that you see in the interviews

Wow
This rumor took off pretty good then.

I get my news from the greatest filter on the internet, commonly known as the UG.

Haywood Jablowme -  That's odd, Xain vehemently DENIED being Ben Rothwell in the Joe Jordan/Ref thread.  So is it you or not Ben?

Ding ding! Someone caught that. awesome.

This stuff is ridiculous and has no place in the sport. People making up false statements and writing what they feel like writing. Not cool! These ppl are obviously just trying to start drama and draw attention to themselves. I think legal action should be taken to help put an end to this crap. TTT

 That sucks when media runs wild.  The news is always interested in a story, true or not, as long as it makes a headline and sells copy (See Kimo Leopoldo vs. Beau Taylor).  It doesn't matter whether people said what they are alleged to have said, or it is patently false, as long as it generates attention they will print it.

Good luck in your fight against those douchenozzles Ben.  I hope you were able to pass the message on to Mazzagatti somehow, it would suck to have a undeserved, hidden bias against you in an upcoming fight.

 I thought garbage like that stopped years ago.  Sorry to hear it still goes on.  I remember back after UFC 2 I read all kinds of things I "said" in "interviews".  Trouble was, the authors were people I never talked to in interviews I never gave.   Figured as the sport grew, the coverage would improve.  Sucks that this happened to Ben.  The little I have been around him, he is a hell of a decent guy, and I have watched him @ Pat's and know how hard he works.

Respectfully:

Fred

Ben, what name did you used to post under? I remember you posting on a thread here years about regarding your fight with Ibragim Magomedov.
