Heavyweight Chris Barnett gets his shot to dance in the UFC when he takes on UFC veteran Ben Rothwell on short notice on May 22nd. Chris Barnett is one of the most entertaining fighters inside & outside the octagon. Chris Beast Boy has over 25 professional fights and has fought for some of the biggest promotions outside the UFC. Chris Beast Boy Barnett had a fight scheduled with a promotion called XFC, but with Chris’s promotion to the UFC, that fight is of course canceled. Chris Barnett has also been a pivotal training partner for the greatest heavyweight of all time Stipe Miocic and the legend Alistair Overeem.
However, Chris will take on with short notice one of the toughest heavyweights of all time in Ben Rothwell. Ben has over 50 professional fights and is dangerous striking or his underrated submission game. Former Island Fights Champion, Chris Barnett will be absolutely game and has been waiting for this opportunity his whole career. I have witness live some of Chris Barnett’s fights under the Island Fights banner and he is must see TV! Chris was always a fan favorite due to his smile, fighting style and of course his dancing skills. We might see a new heavyweight star in Chris Barnett, May 22nd at UFC Vegas 27.
