UFC 258 – Pedro Munhoz vs. Jimmie Rivera Rematch Date Change

Last updated

The anticipated Bantamweight bout between Pedro Munhoz and Jimmie Rivera will still be going ahead; the fight has now been pushed to UFC 258, meaning that it may now not be taking place on UFC’s Fight Island.

MMA Fighting recent confirmed that UFC plans on making a change to the fight’s date. Although not confirmed publicly by the company, the fight will move from the January 20th card to February 13th at UFC 258. An actual location for 258 has not yet been confirmed or revealed by UFC.

Munhoz and Rivera first clashed at a UFC Fight Night event back in November 2015. That fight took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with Rivera defeating Munhoz via split decision. This fight was Rivera’s second in the octagon for UFC.
