    Jimmie Rivera is the #6 ranked contender in the UFC Bantamweight division. He was next expected to face Bryan Caraway at UFC Fight Night 103 on January 15 but Caraway just recently got injured & can no longer fight. It was just announced that Marlon "Chito" Vera will replace Caraway but the fight is still up in the air. Update as seen in the Q&A: Jimmie will not be fighting anyone next week.

    Thanks for taking your time to answer questions!

    What do you know about Marlon Vera and will you change your gameplan for him?

    Thanx for hangin' bro~

    You're young still & I heard you were looking at only another year or 2 in competition.... why the quick retreat?

    & if you do take the belt... I would assume that would delay your retirement. What say you?

    Vaya Boricua! As a fellow Rican I think the amount of high level Puerto Rican MMA fighters Tiger Schulmann is awesome.

    Since your fight in Phoenix isn't happening anymore how soon would you like to get a fight, and do you have anybody in mind as a next opponent?

    yes it would delay my retirement a little if i was champion. but i also do not want to fight forever because of my school and my family. eventually like to settle down focus only on my school and starting a family

    Hey Jimmie appreciate your time my man, were you disappointed that you weren't in the sweepstakes for the title coming off such a good win over Faber? and do you think you think you should be looking at a bigger fight than Caraway because of that? I think you deserve it by the way.

    Hi Jimmie

    First of all, congrats on the biggest win of your career against the legend Faber, what a performance. You have an incredible 20-1 record and i see your only loss came in your second professional bout. Fighters usually say they learn and evolve much more when they experience losing than when they win, so my question is: Do you think losing a fight early in your career was a pivotal moment to achieve the skill set you have currently? Do you think you would be where you are right now, if you didn`t lose that fight?

    Thanks in advance for the response and looking forward to your next fight!

    Your striking was next level against Faber. Would you stand and bang with Cody No-Love? I would love to see you KO him too.
