The great folks at Kimura.se sat down with Jorge Rivera to get his reaction to Alessio Sakara’s surprise illness-withdrawal from that evening’s co-headlining bout. According to the Rivera, his hands were already wrapped for the fight when he received word that he would not be fighting on Saturday. Turns out that things are already coming together for him, as he hints of a pending bout in Australia at UFC 127.
“I’ve got a good fight coming up in Australia, and I’m gonna take a couple weeks off to go home and just relax, because I’ve training hard since about June. My last fight, I had to pull out about July, because I had broken my arm, but I was still training with a broken arm, I wanted to fight. I’ve been training hard now for about five, six months, so I need some time just to relax, man…And then I’m gonna train real, real, real hard. I really want this next fight, man. I not only want the fight, I wanna fuck him up.
[Interviewer: Who are you fighting in Australia?]
Michael Bisping…that is a scoop I’m giving you right now.”
