Urijah Faber set to return against Jimmie Rivera at UFC 203

<p>Urijah Faber is set to face rising prospect Jimmie Rivera in his next fight at UFC 203, <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/Faber-vs-Rivera-Heads-to-Cleveland">as announced Tuesday night.</a></p> <p>Faber (33-9) is coming off of a loss to Dominick Cruz in their trilogy bout at UFC 199 in June where he dropped a unanimous decision. &ldquo;The California Kid&rdquo; entered that bout with a 3-1 record in his last four fights with the wins being submissions over Alex Caceres and Francisco Rivera in addition to a decision against Frankie Saenz. Faber&rsquo;s only pro loss in a non-title fight has come at the hands of former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in 2015.</p> <p>Undefeated in his last eighteen fights, Jimmie Rivera (19-1) is one of the more promising up-and-coming bantamweights on the UFC roster. He made his debut in July last year against Marcus Brimage and won via TKO in under 1:30 in the opening round. The #14 ranked contender&rsquo;s latest win is a unanimous decision win over Iuri Alcantara at UFC on FOX 18 where he won a post-fight bonus.</p> <p>UFC 203 is set to take place at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on September 10. The card will be headlined by Stipe Miocic&rsquo;s first defense of his heavyweight title against Alistair Overeem.</p>
