Jorge RiveraA matchup between middleweights Jorge Rivera and Alessio Sakara has been booked again for UFC 133 in August, the UFC announced Tuesday, after an illness to Sakara scrapped the bout from November’s UFC 122.

Rivera (19-8) had his three-fight win streak snapped in a controversial loss to Michael Bisping in February, while Sakara (15-8) had also won three-straight before being upset by newcomer Chris Weidman in March.

The UFC 133 fight card is expected to take place in early-August between UFC 132 on July 2 and “UFC: Rio” on Aug. 27.
