At UFC on FOX 18 back in January 2016, bantamweights Jimmie Rivera and Iuri Alcantara battled in the main card of the event. That night in New Jersey, Rivera defeated Alcantara via unanimous decision. Both fighters earned $50,000 in Fight of the Night bonuses.
Now, two years later, Rivera will be taking on Marlon Moraes in a key bantamweight bout that’s set to headline UFC Utica. The event will take place this Friday at the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, N.Y.
