UFC 133 Evans vs Ortiz: Luke Thomas Speaks with Jorge Rivera

via ufc.com The fight that will never happen.

This past weekend Luke Thomas interviewed Jorge Rivera for MMA Nation on 106.7 The Fan. During this interview they talk about a bunch of different topics including the cursed fight against Alessio Sakara, making this interview just slightly outdated. He did talk about a bunch of other topics that are relevant to not just this fight but to his fighting future as well. As a man who is currently 39 years old and could potentially have two loses in a row, it could mean that a loss next Saturday ends his UFC tenure. 

Among the topics discussed:

  • The illegal knee that Michael Bisping landed during their fight in Australia at UFC 127 and if there was ever a discussion with the UFC brass about the foul
  • His plans after retiring from MMA which include both opening a gym and potentially becoming a referee or ringside judge. 
  • The fight between Alessio Sakara and why UFC matchmaker Joe Silva attempted three times to put the fight together.
  • Who he believes will be the winner of the main event fight between Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz
