Jimmie Rivera Expects a Title Shot with Win Over Marlon Moraes at UFC Utica

June 1st is the date, Utica, New York the place. Your main event for UFC Fight Night 131?

Top 5 bantamweights, Jimmie ‘El Terror’ Rivera and ‘Magic’ Marlon Moraes.

The two have been wanting to fight each other ever since Rivera needed a replacement for his replacement. Yes, that’s worded correctly. Because originally, UFC 219 was supposed to host a fight between Rivera and former 135 kingpin, Dominick Cruz…but he suffered a broken arm. Filling in for him was John Lineker…until he had to get a tooth infection taken care. Rivera vs Moraes was never made and Rivera was pulled from the card entirely.
