Jorge Rivera Says He May Be Fighting Michael Bisping In February


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

Jorge Rivera might have his next fight lined up already, according to an interview he gave to a reporter this weekend in Germany.

After being forced off the UFC 122 card this past Saturday night in Oberhausen due to a last-minute illness to his scheduled opponent — Alessio Sakara — Rivera told the reporter in Germany that he may be fighting top-ranked middleweight contender Michael Bisping.

While Rivera mentioned that the fight still needs to be agreed to by Bisping, but if it does go through the bout will likely be a part of the UFC 127 card in Australia.

The event has yet to be announced by the UFC for Australia, but is rumored for the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia for February 27th.
