A middleweight bout is said to be in the works for this March’s UFC Fight Night 22, between two UFC vets, Nate Quarry and Jorge Rivera.
UFC is hoping for the March 31st event and at least one of the fighters has agreed to the bout.
The fight is expected to take place in North Carolina and will be an opening for the Spike TV debut of “The Ultimate Fighter 11.”
Rivera just signed a new four-fight deal with UFC this past summer, but he said it may be his last contract.
“I think this might be my last year,I just want to buckle down, push real hard for this one year, and see what I can do.”
If this fight does indeed happen, it should be interesting, as both fighters have 29 wins between them, 18 of which were due to KO or TKO.
