About The Event
Moraes (20-5-1) is a former World Series of Fighting champion, who is 15-1 in his past 16 bouts, only stumbling against perennial bantamweight contender Raphael Assuncao. He picked up in the UFC right where he left off with WSOF, quickly becoming a fan favorite with epic fights with Assuncao, John Dodson, and Aljamain Sterling.
Rivera (21-1) only ever lost in the second fight of his career. Doing the math, he is on a 20-fight winning streak and has been angling hard for a shot at the belt. If he defeats Moraes, who is ranked ahead of him, could easily push him into a title fight.
