    This guy had some of the most exciting fights in the division.. His slugfests with Lineker and Perez were some of the best.. He was suspended four years for clenbuterol in July of 2016 which means he should be eligible to return this summer.

    Will UFC re-sign him or will he go somewhere else? Love to see him back in the UFC

    He went 1-5 in his last 6 UFC fights. Four of those losses came to guys no longer on the UFC roster.

    I'll never forget how Faber beat him with an eye poke pretty much like Rumble vs Kevin Burns 1.

    Yeah, I remember this bullshitter. Rivera was doing quite well until that point.

    I could have swore he said he was done years ago but maybe didn't say it officially? I'm pretty sure he called it a day.


    Yeah but that doesn't really tell the story. That Pickett loss was bullshit and he was lighting Faber up till that horrible eye poke where he had surgery.

    He should have been 2-3-1NC You could also say he should have been 7-3- 1NC in his last 11 fights. Not trying to debate, or say you're wrong in anyway of course, it's just we all know he was better than what his record showed and was entertaining as hell!
