UFC 146 feels like a new day in UFC heavyweight matchmaking, with a main card fully comprised of intriguing heavyweight bouts it marks a new confidence in the division. The UFC on Fox 4 card has a new match announced with the winner ready to join the 146 winners in the discussion for future title contenders.

Here's the fight announcement via UFC.com:

Two big guys coming off of big wins have also agreed to exchange that evening as heavyweight Ben Rothwell takes on Travis "Hapa" Browne. Rothwell earned the KO of the Night bonus while Browne scored Submission of the Night last week at UFC 145.

This is a good fight, Browne needs to step up his competition and Rothwell's renewed focus on his career and toughness presents a legitimate challenge. For Travis, he went from fighting Stefan Struve and Cheick Kongo to fighting worse opponents as the UFC's focus on him increased. Rothwell is going to test his chin and, being very hard to put away, will likely test lingering concerns about Browne's cardio from the Rob Broughton fight.
