According to MMA Junkie, Ben Rothwell returns in March to face Blagoy Ivanov. Rothwell has been out of action with a knee injury and then failed an out-of-competition drug test administered by UFC anti-doping partner U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Rothwell later was issued a two-year suspension for an “anabolic androgenic steroid of exogenous origin.” Rothwell submitted paperwork from his doctor showing he’d undergone testosterone replacement therapy at the direction of his doctor; he was then issued a nine-month suspension.
