I want to give it up to Almeida, he’s a very tough opponent. He came in here, he stood with me, I gave him my bombs and he stuck it out. I came in here, I’m 5-0 right now, if Cody (Garbrandt) is still hurt, I’ll fight TJ (Dillashaw) for the interim belt and if (Dominick) Cruz is done sitting on the bench then let’s fight in November, MSG baby.” -Jimmie Rivera
