UFC on FOX 25

There are several, interesting fights booked for UFC on FOX 25 today, but one of the bouts that could steal the show is Thomas Almeida vs. Jimmie Rivera.

Almeida was steadily rising the bantamweight ranks, until he ran into Cody Garbrandt last May, and was knocked out in the opening round. The feared striker returned to action in November, and Almeida finished Albert Morales in round two.

Recently the UFC posted the vid below, which features Almeida discussing his finishing approach to fighting, as well as Rivera. The latter hasn’t lost a fight since 2008, and Rivera’s won all four of his UFC bouts to date, which includes a decision win over Urijah Faber.
