For the uninitiated, the Bantamweight division has been going to and fro between the likes of Cody Garbrandt, TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz, all of whom have held the championship. Rivera has been pushing for a fight with all three but he is yet to get one.

He blasted the top three in his latest tweet and went after Cody in particular. You can see his tweet below.

“Salty? Yea I am. @Cody_Nolove is a bitch and making excuses. I want to make bantamweight great again by breaking up that top 3 love triangle. Waiting for @codynolove balls to drop so we can fight.   #anydaynow #pubertyprobs #trashtalktuesday”

Currently 22-2 in his career, Rivera’s last fight came against John Dodson which ended in favor of Rivera via a unanimous decision. Prior to this, he had suffered a KO defeat to Marlon Moraes which was his first loss in almost a decade.

Cody Garbrandt, meanwhile, fought TJ Dillashaw twice and lost on both occasions. He, however, holds a win over Dominick Cruz.

What do you think should be next for Rivera? Let us know in the comments.
