Rivera vs. Sakara booked for 3rd time, now at UFC 133

by Gene Mrosko | source: mmamania.com

After injuries to both competitors forced a cancellation of a planned UFC 118 bout, Jorge Rivera and Alessio Sakara were then booked to throw hands at the "Marquardt vs. Okami" event in Germany back in Nov. 2010.

That, however, fell through at the last minute when "Legionarius" had a close encounter with some bad tuna, which had him upchucking all over Oberhausen.

Not to be deterred, the world's largest fight promotion is giving it one more go, as the bout was recently made official for UFC 133 on Aug. 6 at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 This would have been a closer fight before Ze Germans poisoned Sakara's tuna. Rivera's only chance here is if an errant bomb gets through. Bisping lit Rivera and Sakara is much faster, much more technical and hits harder. I think this thing ends in a blazing Sakara flurry very early in round 1. It's a pity that Alessio, Romano Puro has to spend time in such a classless city like Philly--he's used to much better conditions and I would employ a food tester to make sure another dodgy food related problem doesn't happen before a fight with Rivera. I hope the usually classless jerks from Philly can contain themselves and not start a USA chant. Sakara was beating that blanket handily before the hillbilly crowd turned on him and came with the USA chants. I hope that many from NY and Nj will be in attendance and support Sakara. Rivera's getting Bada Bingo'd FORZA SAKARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEMPLICEMENTE IL MIGLIORE!!!!!!!!
