Report: Munhoz-Rivera rematch set for UFC Fight Night on Jan. 30
A bantamweight rematch between Pedro Munhoz and Jimmie Rivera is set for UFC Fight Night on Jan. 30, sources told MMA Fighting's Mike Heck and Guilherme Cruz.
The two met in November 2015, with Rivera earning a split-decision victory in his second Octagon appearance.
Munhoz is coming off a controversial loss to former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in August. The Brazilian, who's ranked No. 6 in the division, has dropped two straight bouts.
Rivera is coming off a decision win over Cody Stamann in July. That victory snapped the No. 8-ranked contender's own two-fight skid.
The UFC hasn't announced a main event or location for the Jan. 30 card.
