Alessio Sakara Wants to Fight Michael Bisping in Rome: "Michael Bisping is a very tough guy; a great fighter. I have no problem with Bisping. It is a good fight because of one thing: Italy Vs England! This is very nice for the European fans. Everyone knows about the intense Italy/England soccer rivalry. When we play them in Rome there is problems and when we go to London to play them, there is always problems. It is good for the fans but good for me too." "He is a very tough opponent and that is who I like to fight. I have no problem fighting him in London or Manchester. My whole life I never get to fight at home. I'm always fighting somewhere else; in enemy territory, so I am used to it. It would also be cool to fight him in Rome if the UFC can make the trip to Italy. For now I am focused on Rivera but it is a fight I want very much." --Artwork by Ciro Falsanisi UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami Coverage

A few days ago, UFC middleweight Jorge Rivera announced that he would be forced to withdraw from his UFC 118 bout with Alessio Sakara due to an injury sustained in training. Today, "El Conquistador" shares some more bad news with the Boston Herald's Dan Duggan: Jorge Rivera immediately knew he had seriously injured his left arm. During a recent training session at Tim Burrill Jiu Jitsu, Rivera attempted a takedown and his grappling partner, Radhames Familia, sprawled on his arm. Rivera heard a snap and knew he was in trouble. The result was a broken ulna, one of the two bones in the forearm... Rivera initially hoped that he’d be ready to return to action in late September or October, but he’ll get a better idea of the timetable after a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. "I was hoping that I would be able to let it heal," the Milford native said. "I had no idea how much went into recovery. It’s nowhere near what I thought it was like. So it’s just going to take me a lot longer than I would have hoped... It sucks... It’s very disappointing to walk away from fighting in Boston."
