UFC Fight Night results -- Ben Rothwell wins close one; Drew Dober dazzles

Bigger is not necessarily better, at least not if you're Ovince Saint Preux. If you're Ben Rothwell, well, "Big Ben" is your nickname and you've got to live up to it.

Saint Preux, who has fought at light heavyweight for his entire 12-year professional career, moved up to heavyweight Wednesday night and put on a strong performance, but it was not quite enough to handle 265 pounds of Rothwell, who won a split decision in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night in Jacksonville, Florida.

Rothwell (38-13) stalked OSP (24-14) for the entirety of the three rounds.
