A featherweight bout between Cody Stamann and Jimmie Rivera has been added to UFC’s July 15th fight night. News of the pairing was first reported by Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.
Stamann has quickly amassed a strong record in the UFC, picking up five wins, one draw and one loss. Last month, Stamann defeated Brian Kelleher via unanimous decision.
Rivera finds himself in the almost opposite situation to Stamann. Rivera is currently aiming to bounce back from a two-fight losing streak, with the most recent fight coming from over a year ago. Rivera was meant to face Marlon Vera in February, however, injury took him out of the situation.
