UFC on Fox 25 just got a whole lot more exciting after the addition of a bantamweight bout between Jimmie Rivera vs. Thomas Almeida. Ranked No. 5, Rivera (20-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) will look for his 20th straight win against the No. 9 ranker Almeida (22-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC). The news was originally reported by Long Island-based Newsday.com, though it hasn’t been officially announced by the promotion.
It is worth noting that Almeida’s only Pro-MMA career loss was to the current UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt.
It would be exciting to watch these two young guns battle it out and make their way through the always bustling Bantamweight Division of UFC.
