Joe Rivas has been in the MMA game for some time and with that time comes more responsibility. The 37-year-old family man knows when it’s time to hang it up and this bout is just the perfect opportunity to do so.
After a razor thin decision loss to Cameron Chism, Rivas knew he wanted to win what he thought was his belt before it was time to call it quits. So, Rivas made the moves to properly get back in title contention, and after a dominant win Enrique Medina…got the title shot he so desperately was aiming for against Thomas Crossan. That fight goes down this Saturday, December 1 from Genetti’s Hotel in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Tune in below as Joe Rivas and MyMMANews’ own, Adam Crist go head to head to talk about Rivas’ title shot and his plans after retirement.
