A veteran of the UFC’s bantamweight wars will take on one of the division’s fastest rising up-and-comers at UFC 238.

Jimmie Rivera will square off with Petr Yan on the June 8 card at United Center in Chicago. MMA Junkie confirmed with a person close to the situation following a Thursday ESPN report.

Rivera (22-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) is looking to break out of a tough stretch in which he has dropped two out of his past three fights. The New Jersey native’s most recent bout was a unanimous-decision loss to Aljamain Sterling in Phoenix on Feb. 17.

Pete Yan is on the fast track to a bantam weight title shot . If he can pull off the victory in this one he will have just beat Dodson and Rivera back to back that has to be enough to get him a top 5 top 3 opponent in a number 1 contender bout.

Dude has a really bright future win or lose super talent young man!!!

They’re trying to make Rivera the gatekeeper of 135. As good as Rivera is, Yan is much sharper
