Video: Ben Rothwell submits Junior dos Santos at UFC Zagreb, celebrates with bizarre victory dance

EA Sports UFC 2 simulator has this one scouted:

Will life imitate art?

We'll find out this Sunday (April 10, 2016) when Ben Rothwell collides with former division champion Junior dos Santos in the UFC Fight Night 86 main event inside Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia, live on FOX Sports 1.

"Big" Ben (36-9) is riding a torrid four-fight win streak -- with four finishes -- including last January's submission victory over No. 9-ranked Josh Barnett. Prior to disposing of "The Warmaster," Rothwell rid himself of Matt Mitrione, not long after knocking out No. 3-ranked Alistair Overeem.

Dos Santos (17-4) has some of the most dangerous hands in the entire weight class and once ruled the heavyweight division with an iron fist. Unfortunately, "Cigano" looked a bit punchy his last time out, crumbling in a heap against the aforementioned Overeem at UFC on FOX 17 and is now just 2-3 over his last five. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 86 fight card on fight day (click here), starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. ET, and then the remaining undercard balance on FOX Sports 1 at noon ET, before the main card start time at 2 p.m. ET, also on FOX Sports 1.
