Just hours after the news broke that Brian Caraway had withdrew with his scheduled fight against Jimmie Rivera, Joh Dodson posted on Rivera’s Twitter account requesting a fight. Dodson said the following:
“@jimmyrivera135 I hear you need an opponent next week for #UFCPhoenix. #LetsDoThis you in? @ufc @danawhite @seanshelby”
Dodson, is coming off a very close split decision loss to John Lineker, while Rivera is coming off a one sided decision win over Urijah Faber.
The UFC and Jimmie Rivera has not yet responded to Dodson’s offer.
