John Lineker Willing to Step in to Fight Jimmie Rivera at UFC 219

Jimmie Rivera has done everything to earn himself the biggest fights at bantamweight and UFC clearly agreed.

He was matched up against former champion Dominick Cruz, but Cruz had to end up pulling out due to a broken arm. Just…

“I WOULD FIGHT WITH JIMMIE RIVERA. I’M AT THE UFC’S DISPOSAL TO FIGHT HIM. I’M READY. I WANT TO FIGHT AGAIN, AND IT’LL DEFINITELY BE A DIFFERENT FIGHT FROM MY LAST PERFORMANCE AGAINST MARLON VERA. I’LL BE MORE IN THE RHYTHM AND JOHN LINEKER WILL FIGHT AS HE ALWAYS HAS: AGGRESSIVELY. ALL THE TIME, I AM READY. […] I THINK I’M NOT FAR FROM A TITLE FIGHT AND A REMATCH WITH [TJ DILLASHAW]. I THINK THAT MY VICTORY OVER MARLON VERA HAS PUT ME BACK INTO THE MIX, AND I BELIEVE THAT ANOTHER ONE OR TWO WINS AND I’M IN TALKS AGAIN TO FIGHT THE CHAMPION.”
