HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Jimmie Rivera ’s move to Bareknuckle Fighting Championship was an easy one to make. The former UFC bantamweight contender found two major things appealing when deciding where to go following his departure from the UFC in August 2021. Rivera, who’s set to debut for BKFC on Friday against Howard Davis, liked the pay and contract flexibility that came with the promotion. “Dave (Feldman) is doing a great job. He’s bringing some big stars in and the paychecks are what fighters want to get paid, so that’s a great plus,” Rivera told MMA Junkie.
