Not long after his first loss in nine years, Jimmie Rivera was already talking about his next fight.
“I’m thinking about going back to training again and getting ready for the next fight,” Rivera told MMAjunkie following his knockout loss to Marlon Moraes earlier this month. “That’s it. You always get knocked down off the horse. It’s about what you do afterwards. And me and from Tiger Schulmann and my discipline, just get back on and try again.
“I’m just going to go back to the drawing board, get back working again and get my next fight in line.”
He meant every word.
