Takeya Mizugaki vs. Francisco Rivera at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3rd

Former WEC title contender, Takeya Mizugaki and the ever tough Francisco Rivera will meet next in a bantamweight bout at the UFC on Versus 3 card on March 3rd, an event that’s still without a location or venue.

Mizugaki was last seen in action last month, losing via first round submission to former WEC featherweight king pin, Urijah Faber. He challenged for the bantamweight title on his WEC debut over a year ago, stepping up to face Miguel Torres at short notice, losing in the end vis unaimous decision.

Rivera will be looking to rebound from his WEC debut where he was defeated by Erik Koch on the same card his new opponent headlined, WEC 52, losing via TKO due to brutal head-kick knockout early on in the fight.
