That’s right the 36-10 heavyweight competitor Ben Rothwell has taken to Twitter to try and cash in on the upcoming catch weight fight between Tyron Woodley and Michael Bisping by proposing…a 2 on 1 handicap match…for both of their titles.

It’s possible he meant ridiculous, but don’t bet the house on it. Maybe he meant he was ridiculing the two, who knows.
If the UFC decides to make this happen, and all fighters are up for it, we could have our second two simultaneous division champ, and it’ll be a guy who can’t legally fight in either division. How awesome would that be? Very. I mean…it’ll probably never happen, this isn’t Bellator we’re talking about. But could you imagine? Michael Bisping and Tyron Woodley constantly jumping the cage to make hot tags. Tiny Tyron running from Big Ben while Bisping can only stand back and yell “Serpentine, Tyron! Serpentine!” Hilarious. Least he’d get his first title reign anyway…first and second I guess. Rothwell would most likely have to vacate the titles right away, cause you can’t be the two division champ of two divisions you can’t make weight for. …or can you…have a new event every so often, a Middleweight and a Welterweight team up to try and take the belts from Ben Rothwell, if they win, they become the champs and everything goes back to normal, if they lose, the freak show continues! It’s a win win. That would be the best. Ok it would never happen, but a man can dream can’t he? A man can dream.
Anyway, Rothwell was clearly joking, however a lot of people would love to see that (myself included). How about you guys? What 2 on 1 matchups would you want to see? Let us know in the comments below.
