Jimmie Rivera has an idea on how Cody Garbrandt got his first UFC title shot, and it doesn’t involve winning fights.

Rivera has some advice for young up and coming fighters. That is, instead of spending time training and winning your fights, brush up on your trash talking skills.

According to bantamweight contender “El Terror” Rivera it is just as important who you know in this sport. Rivera doesn’t believe Garbrant “earned” his title shot in the slightest.

“Cody was the seventh-ranked guy that got lucky and sucked somebody’s d—k or something like that and got a f—king shot,” Rivera told “Inside The Cage” on BJPenn.com. “He ended up beating [Dominick] Cruz who can’t box and became champ.

“He defended his belt and lost it right away to Dillashaw, then he fought for it again and lost to TJ and they were quick finishes. So, I don’t think he’s one of the best fighters out there. I think he’s in the way and him not wanting to fight until next year, I think he should lose his spot.”

Garbrandt has opted to stay on the sidelines until 2019. The extra time will serve “No Love” and his lingering injuries well. Rivera can either wait it out and hope that Garbrandt signs on the dotted line next year or “El Terror” can take a different fight in the meantime.

Either way, the bantamweight division is heating up this winter and showing no signs of cooling off.

Title Contender Blasts Cody Garbrandt For Ducking Him

One title contender wasn’t happy with Cody Garbrandt for not fighting him.

The post Title Contender Blasts Cody Garbrandt For Ducking Him appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Cody Garbrandt gets put on blast by a contender in a recent string of posts that was sent out on his official Twitter account. That contender is Jimmie Rivera, who has been calling for a fight against the former UFC bantamweight champion.

Rivera suffered a loss to former WSOF champion Marlon Moraes when he landed a huge head kick to win the bantamweight headliner at UFC Utica. This marked Rivera’s first loss since November 2008. Coming into the headliner, he was on a 20-fight winning streak.

Rivera got back to his winning ways when he picked up a decision win over former title contender John Dodson. That fight took place on the main card of the UFC 228 pay-per-view event at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Rivera recently took to his official Twitter account to rip Garbandt by claiming that he’s ducking him.

“Unfortunately, I’ve been notified @Cody_Nolove has decide to bitch out and play the hurt card. Right now he is conveniently unavailable to fight until after @DominickCruz next fight. Due to these circumstances, #trashtalktuesday will be on hold while I keep the division moving.”

The good news is that Rivera has reached a verbal agreement to fight Raphael Assuncao, according to this recent post.

“While @Cody_Nolove is pouting, my team has spoken with @RaphaAssuncao manager and the @ufc . We both agreed to fight and are waiting on the paperwork to sign to put on a show for the fans.”
