    I feel bad for Rivera…Time is not on his side and I’m sure he worked hard as shit in preperations for the fight.

    I won’t be surprised if Sakara gets cut… They’ve almost done it like 2 or 3 times now since he has been if the ufc but if he doesn’t fight soon Dana might give him his walking papers. I’m not saying it will happen I just have a feeling it could happen.
