I need someone for Dec 30th and @ufc needs a main event! Lets go @TJDillashaw. You only fought for 7 and a half minutes, I know you're in shape and healthy. Step up and stop trying to run down to 125.

If TJ Dillashaw is ready to defend his bantamweight title, Jimmie Rivera is also ready to take it from him.
Rivera, who was scheduled to meet Dominick Cruz at UFC 219 before an injury knocked Cruz out, made it known that he wants to headline the year-ending card from Las Vegas vs. the new champion.
