Francisco Rivera Says He Can Be The #1 Contender For The Bantamweight Belt
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.01.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Francisco Rivera (10-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) said that he's ready to become the #1 contender to the UFC bantamweight title. He will fight Takeya Mizugaki (19-7-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) at UFC 173 on Memorial Day weekend from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

On facing Mizugaki: "He's not one of those people who is going to take you to the ground and hold you there to win. We can stand and bang all three rounds, or he can knock me out, or I can knock him out. Whatever, I just want the fans to see a great fight and know that we're there to put on a show."

On making changes: "I have to change a little bit of the things I know I should have done before, but maybe just wasn't in the right position to do it. Now the position I'm in I can change my diet, hire nutrition, I can hire a personal strength and conditioning coach."

On getting a title shot if he wins: "It's a huge opportunity and I think if I work on a lot of things I'm supposed to, I can be the number one contender here."
