Jorge Rivera retires with a W

Jorge Rivera really turned things around, on Eric Shafer , in the second round of their prelim match at UFC on FX 1.  The official outcome came at 1:31 in rd 2 by way of TKO.  Eric Shafer put on an excellent display of wrestling, but proved ineffective against the crafty veteran, Jorge Rivera, who used a whizzer to stand back up and dole out some punishment of his own.

It’s always nice to see a veteran of the sport get to retire with their last fight ending in a victory.  We here at The MMA Beatdown wish Mr. Rivera luck with his future endeavors and look forward to the inevitable new talent that will be filling the gap he has left.
