“I’ll be surprise if @Cody_Nolove even fights again, he can’t handle losing and fighting me would mean losing a third time,”
Rivera is currently 22-2 in his career. He was undefeated for nine years from 2009 to 2018 but the streak ended when Marlon Moraes stopped him at UFC Fight Night 131. Garbrandt, meanwhile, is 11-2 in his career. Garbrandt recently suffered back to back defeats against TJ Dillashaw at UFC 217 and UFC 227 respectively.
