Ben Rothwell has his next assignment.
The 51-fight veteran is set to fight Philipe Lins in a heavyweight bout at a UFC event on March 13, with a location still to be determined. MMA Fighting confirmed the news with sources with knowledge of the bout following an initial report by Combate.
Rothwell (38-13) is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Marcin Tybura this past October. That broke a two-fight win streak for Rothwell, which saw him beat Ovince Saint Preux by split decision and Stefan Struve by second-round TKO. Rothwell, 39, owns a UFC record of 8-7.
Lins (14-5) seeks his first UFC victory after joining the promotion last May. The 35-year-old Brazilian was the 2018 PFL heavyweight champion, but he has fallen short in octagon outings against Tanner Boser and Andrei Arlovski.
