Edwin Figueroa-Francisco Rivera Set For UFC 156

Bantamweights Edwin Figueroa and Francisco Rivera will spend Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas, as the two have signed to compete at UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar. The card takes place February 2 from Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Figueroa (9-1) has won two of his three UFC bouts, including a win over Alex Caceres. He has not fought since that victory, which came this past February.

Rivera (8-2) is 1-1 in his Octagon career, and is coming off a knockout victory over Roland Delorme. The bout will likely be part of the prelims, which are set for FX and Facebook.
