Both Francisco Rivera and Urijah Faber had kicked around the idea of competing in early January after the controversial ending to their bout recently.
However, that likely will not happen, as Rivera posted on Twitter that his injured eye will require “surgery and rest.”
Faber accidentally poked Rivera during the second round, leaving him without vision in his eye. “The California Kid” proceeded to apply a choke and earn the submission win.
