Jimmie Rivera hasn’t lost in the Octagon. Thomas Almeida has only lost to champ Cody Garbrandt. Both men are killers in the striking department, and on Saturday, the duo are kicking off the main card for UFC on FOX 25. Can you see where I’m going with this?
There are a lot of fights to like on Saturday’s card, but none promise violence like the scrap between Rivera and Almeida.
Will Almeida’s speed be too great? Will Rivera’s razor-sharp counter-punching game send the Brazilian to Dreamland? I have no clue, but I’m excited.
To get you excited, here’s a sample of what Almeida brings into the cage.
